What is IoT?

In brief, the term can be explained as follows: The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of geographically distributed but interconnected devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects or people, which are uniquely identifiable and have the ability to exchange data about themselves and their immediate environment within a network without the need for direct human-to-human or human-to-machine interaction.

The IoT offers companies across all industries numerous opportunities for optimization. In the field of mobile machines, for example, these include remote diagnosis and teleservice, which lead to an increase in availability and verifiable cost savings for the manufacturer and operator. The quality of the products can be improved during the development phase by using dynamic historical data. Through intelligent evaluation, trends can be identified and forecasts can be made in order to implement predictive maintenance.

IoT allows you to...


Increase availability and quality while reducing costs

Cloud-based monitoring is the foundation of our IoT solutions. You gain full control over machines regardless of location,
Components and entire fleets. Automated alarm functions in the event of limit violations and remote access help to avoid production stops, delivery delays and production errors.

Product development

Avoid weak points, accelerate time-to-market

Real operating and usage data are essential for the development and optimization of products. With optiMEAS evaluate live and historical data and feed the result back directly into development. Or you can use recorded data for extensive big-data evaluations.

predictive maintenance

Recognize today what will not work tomorrow

The combined evaluation of current and historical machine data reveals correlations and trends. Maintenance and repair processes are carried out with foresight on the basis of reliable forecasts of wear behaviour. This saves costs and resources.

smart services

Develop new sources of income, retain customers permanently

Data-supported services around a product offer enormous profit potential directly and indirectly. For service providers and manufacturers who become service providers, but also for operators who save investment costs and gain flexibility by using "as-a-service" offers.
