Asset Connectivity Hardware

Solutions that work where you work – even if your assets are not connected.

Flexible Cloud Connectivity Options

To overcome challenges in cloud connectivity, our Gateway offers several solutions for connecting your asset data to the cloud. For sites with an accessible internet connection, connect our Gateway via Ethernet or WiFi to your existing network. If a network connection isn’t available or accessible, we offer 3G and 4G cellular options to open the connection to the cloud. This flexibility enables the option of primary / backup network connections for scenarios where business continuity is crucial.

Flexible Asset Connectivity Options

Our Gateway enables a multitude of connectivity options for communicating with your assets. Connect to devices on the local network, or over Bluetooth. New modules are in the pipeline to enable connectivity to ZigBee and ZWave assets as well. We support common protocols like Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU, OBD2, or CAN-bus.

Ruggedized Options for Harsh Environments

If your environment calls for increased capabilities, we offer upgrades to handle damp, dusty, harsh-temperature or industrial environments. We offer options for MIL-STD-810G compliance for vibration and shock (2KHz 3-axis and 15G 6-directions respectively).

Ensures Maxium Availability

If your business case demands highly-available data streams, we offer solutions for hardware and connectivity redundancy. Gateways always cache machine data in the event of disruptions in cloud connectivity. We can do one better and fail-over to a backup cloud connection if your use-case demands it.

Designed to Last

We test our hardware and software under physically and computationally demanding conditions to ensure a reliable solution. Your business is very important to us and we want our products to stand the test of time and load. If you’re not happy, we’re not happy.

Designed specifically to establish local connections to a wide range of assets – even if they are not IoT enabled

Machine Data Translation

In order to ensure maximum compatibility, all asset data is converted to a common format. We offer standard modules for converting well-defined protocols to our standards-based format and can quickly develop custom modules for proprietary or uncommon formats.

Data Aggregation and Reduction

As messages arrive from assets, data is aggregated and reduced to improve downstream network performance and caching ability. This helps reduce load on cloud services and optimize overall cost of data transport and storage.

Remote Device Commands

If your assets support commands, we offer modules which deliver those commands from Salesforce Web and Mobile to the assets. If your commands use a proprietary or nonstandard format, we can quickly develop custom modules to enable command delivery.

Alert Management

Use alerts to identify situations where you need to trigger processes in Salesforce. Alerts are defined in Salesforce for like-assets, distributed to the Gateways, and evaluated over the streaming asset data. If a hit is found on any Alert, a notification is sent to your Salesforce Org to trigger your processes and flows. Salesforce processes and flows have access to Salesforce Object data joined with the IoT Alert data to enable intelligent decisions and duplicate reduction.

Enables your connection to the Cloud – even through intermittent cloud connection

Offline Data Caching

If the Gateway loses connection with the cloud, it will queue uploads until the connection is established.

Online Automatic Upload

Once the Gateway reestablishes its connection to the cloud, any queue data is uploaded as if the Gateway was connected continuously.

Backup Internet Connection

Optionally a failover internet connection can be employed whereby the Gateway fails over to a cellular connection, satellite connection, or redundant network connection. During switchover, uploads are queued until the backup connection is established.
