Mitsubishi Electric’s e-F@ctory IoT Gateway
Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. and ILS Technology, a Telit company, have collaborated on the e-F@ctory IoT Gateway, Mitsubishi Electric’s new Machine-to-Cloud (M2C) industrial appliance for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The Internet-enabled gateway is powered by the deviceWISE IoT platform from ILS Technology for seamless and secure M2C connectivity and data transfers.
The Mitsubishi Electric e-F@ctory IoT Gateway improves information visibility and accessibility for energy management applications. The appliance provides the ability to macro-process data and transform it into actionable information prior to sending it to the cloud. Once the data is stored in the cloud, charts are automatically created to provide real-time visual key performance indicators.
The e-F@ctory IoT Gateway can help organizations drive down production costs and reduce energy consumption while optimizing automated asset utilization. Cloud-based analytics can also benefit organizations that want to shift from reactive or preventive maintenance to predictive maintenance.
