Christ IIoT solutions

With our IIoT solutions we network your smart machines and plants with each other and enable communication between them. This provides relevant data and solves problems autonomously.

The industrial Internet of Things is a building block for the digitalisation of production and the path to Industry 4.0. If the collected process data is correctly evaluated, numerous optimisation possibilities open up for your machines and plants. In the long term you can save resources and increase the efficiency of your customers' production, e.g. through predictive maintenance. You can also optimise your services for your customers or develop new offers for remote maintenance via secure SSH or VNC communication. With the information from the data, you can adapt your machines even better to customer requirements and generate competitive advantages.

IIoT product variants

In order to be able to respond particularly flexibly to your needs, we have developed variously extensive package variants. From pure hardware, a IIoT Gateway, to a complete solution with cloud connection. Here you will find exactly the IIoT solution that suits your requirements. We guarantee you transparency throughout the entire project and fair billing models.

Your independence is of great concern to us, so the responsibility for the cloud is yours. We will support you in all the set-up modalities and train you in how to use it correctly. Depending on the solution variant, you will receive extensive support from us in the development and implementation. You decide how much help you need here.

Our services for your added value

Optimum evaluations of relevant machine data enable individual services tailored to your customers. Create special added value in this way.

As a system provider, we understand IIoT as a complete system and offer a functional, tested solution, from the hardware interface to data processing and evaluation. By combining two systems from one company, the initial implementation can be carried out much more quickly. If required, we will accompany you from the first steps to the commissioning.

With our package variants we offer flexible solutions for different requirements in the field of Industrial IoT, from a pure IIoT Gateway to a complete system. Start your IIoT project now and benefit from a solution with the highest safety precautions and convenient operation that is tailored to your needs.

Complete solution: IIoT Gateway Blue Box and connection between machine and Christ Cloud

The connecting element between the smart machine and data evaluation is the IIoT Gateway, which enables edge computing. Here your process data is collected, processed and sent to the cloud. Data aggregation in the gateway is particularly important to ensure a fast database even with large amounts of data. If a connection is lost, the data is stored in our gateway until it can be sent again. In this way we ensure that no data is lost.

In the Christ Cloud your data is processed and visualised with container applications in Kubernetes. With the help of dashboards, which we adapt to your requirements, the processed data is displayed in a graphically clear way. For particularly high flexibility, the output device can be chosen at will, whether PC, Smart Phone or Tablet.re services for your added value

IoT is mainly about interaction between people and machines in everyday environments. A good example here is smart home. By connecting thermostats or lighting to a cloud, they can be conveniently controlled from anywhere.

In contrast, IIoT is about communication and networking between different machines and systems in industrial context. With the help of sensors and actuators, different data and information can be collected. This is how manufacturing processes can be optimized.

IoT stands for "Internet of Things." IIoT stands for "industrial Internet of Things" and refers to the use of IoT solutions in industrial environments. It is designed to connect the Information Technology (IT) domain with Operational Technology (OT) to drive digitalization. .

The goal is to control, monitor and optimize production processes. Numerous data are collected through the networking of machines and systems. When this data is evaluated and analyzed, important insights can be gained that can increase productivity, reduce downtime and thus save costs.

Through the use of sensors and embedded systems, information on the status of machines and plants is collected via industrial communication channels (fieldbuses), such as OPC UA. These large volumes of data are challenging to process so that even real-time relevant processes can run without errors.

In a cloud, this data is then collected, evaluated and displayed in clear dashboards. It is important to ensure that this data is protected from access by unauthorized persons. That is why different security elements are used.

It also increases automation and optimizes the value chain. The collected data can be used, for example, to optimally determine maintenance intervals (predictive maintenance), which leads to less downtime. This simultaneously leads to higher customer satisfaction. Changes in production processes can be intervened in virtually real time.

The use of IIoT also makes sense in terms of sustainability. With the help of optimized production processes, energy and other resources can be saved significantly.
