IIoT gateway with secure element and cloud connection | Christ ES


Fast and safe - complete solution for your IIoT project

With this complete package you can start your IIoT project easily and safely. By evaluating machine and process data, production processes can be optimised for increased efficiency, the careful use of resources and reduced downtime.

The Edge Gateway includes an integrated secure element and a personalised operating system. We use Yubi keys or special certificates for secure identification and authentication. Thus we protect the vulnerable interface between machine and network. Customer allocation, management and updating is carried out via an administration portal.

Through the Christ Cloud the collected data is evaluated and processed. In the cloud we provide various modules for your information evaluation as standard: Data Collector, Device Management, User Management, Report Service, Remote Service and Notification Service. To ensure that you receive exactly the visualisations that are relevant for your machines, we work closely with you in the development of the dashboards.

If the standardised Kubernetes basic modules are not sufficient, we will adapt customised modules to your requirements. In this way, you receive exactly the information that is relevant for you. The advantage for your customers in this system is the data sovereignty. Your customer can decide for himself which data you as a machine builder have access to. At the same time, the system can be maintained by an administrator who has no insight into the company data. This gives you a clear competitive advantage.

The REST API allows information from the database to be transferred to other systems for further processing. This way our system can either be easily integrated into internal systems or be the basis for the introduction of new structures.

Optimize production through remote maintenance

With the help of Remote Service, Christ offers a service for remote maintenance of machines, connected via the standardised REST interface. In this way, problems or maintenance work can be carried out more quickly and efficiently. The connection is established using Virtual Network Computing (VNC). Due to the Remote Buffer Protocol, this system can be used cross-platform. With the help of an SSH tunnel, secure data transmission is guaranteed. Client authentication ensures that only authorised users can access the machine. With the help of the Remote Service, breakdowns can be reduced and the production processes optimised, which means a saving of time and resources.
