LoopEdge is feature-rich to meet all your IIoT needs.
In just a few clicks, DeviceHub lets IT teams quickly and easily connect industrial drivers (PLC, DCS, CNC, Historians, etc.) and systems to start collecting data with the help of native security layers for device and data isolation. In addition, command and control protection allows write protection to the industrial systems unless explicitly specified and includes Worker Mode, where tens of thousands of industrial tags can be polled at high frequency with data available as a PubSub subscription. Output of DeviceHub is always standardized in JSON and IPSO-JSON formats.
Complete device connectivity with quick driver deployment and a drag and drop interface. All customizable using C++ and Erlang as a backend. Collect data from LoopFlow Single Point Data Access framework. Including support for Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, Ethernet/IP, EtherCat, Profibus, Profinet, Enchelon, Ethernet with HTTP, BacNet/IP, OPCUA, and many more! Process, filter and analyze data with the ability to write application logic using JS & Python, including functions, as well as rules and alerts for event processing. Sync flows to the cloud and create new versions of the code to push to devices quickly.
Have immediate access to a marketplace of popular 3rd party databases, CEP tools and data analytics applications, populated by Litmus Automation and partners. In addition, LoopEdge allows private applications to be created, hosted and monetized by VARs, Distributors, OEMs or SIs. Application deployment is based on container technology, such as Linux LXC / Docker based application deployments, which can also be managed at the cloud level so you can control and deploy your applications to the edge.
DataHub includes a native and highly scalable broker to publish or subscribe to data from various topics with high security and isolation for multiple applications that are consuming the same data. DataHub allows LoopEdge to run offline, but can push all offline data to the cloud once an internet connection is established. This helps in situations where network connectivity is not always strong. DataHub’s Native Cloud Connection collects data from the local message broker and local database to push to the cloud via MQTT, REST or AMQP.
With LoopEdge, you can identify and report security issues, permitted and non-permitted data transmission to the external IPs, as well as SSL and non-SSL sessions. In addition, you can instantly find anomalies in the access, as well as identify external hacking. LoopEdge also provides a bandwidth analysis breakdown, as well as rule-based communication blocking.
Made to work together
LoopEdge works seamlessly with the Loop platform. In fact, most Loop add-ons can be run at the edge for powerful processing and filtering so only the necessary processed data is sent to the cloud.
