HMS Industrial Networks introduces their Anybus.NET gateways for connecting real-time data from industrial machinery to .NET-based IT applications. This means that .NET programmers can get data directly from a PLC system on the other side of “the edge” to be used in applications for statistics, analysis or maintenance. The first .NET gateways are available for PROFIBUS and PROFINET. The Anybus .NET gateways act as translators which send and receive data between PROFIBUS- or PROFINET-networks and IT platforms using .NET as a framework. The result is that IT systems get unprecedented access to real-time data from the factory floor which enables predictive maintenance, KPI-follow-up, machine analytics, data mining, big data processing, production statistics and more without interfering with the industrial processes.
