Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform provider Litmus Automation announced that it has joined the Siemens MindSphere Partner Program. The program, which is for Industrial IoT solution and technology providers, recently opened an application center in India. Litmus’ LoopEdge platform collects data from industrial devices and makes it available on MindSphere, the cloud-based open IoT operating system from Siemens.
Litmus' LoopEdge platform provides the ability to connect to any type of PLC or industrial system, with the ability to process, filter and analyze data at the Edge with a marketplace of applications, and secure connectivity to the Cloud or other enterprise integrations. LoopEdge has the ability to integrate data on to MindSphere in real-time. In addition to LoopEdge, Litmus also offers its users the Loop solution which enables data manipulation using built-in analytics and real-time visualization, and for the management of connected hardware, devices, sensors or machines.
"Siemens is committed to creating partnerships that help customers digitally transform with Industrial IoT," said Paul Kaeley, senior vice president, global partner ecosystem at Siemens PLM Software. "Working with Litmus Automation allows us to bring powerful edge computing to the MindSphere ecosystem to improve customers’ ability to gather valuable data from the edge and use it to improve manufacturing processes."
MindSphere connects products, plants, systems, and machines, enabling businesses to harness the wealth of data generated by the Internet of Things (IoT) with advanced analytics. Litmus’ LoopEdge platform integrated with MindSphere is available immediately and targets OEMs and customers in manufacturing, power distribution, and machine building.
"Our partnership with Siemens enables us to help more customers solve their IoT challenges including legacy device integration, device lifecycle management, and advanced edge computing capabilities,” said John Younes, cofounder and COO at Litmus. "Customers now have a powerful edge computing solution to collect data from all of their industrial devices and make it available on MindSphere in a quick and easy way."
