Digital twin as a key component

Benutzeroberfläche der IoT Plattform Contact Elements for IoT

Industrial IoT solutions must provide an accurate view of the as-maintained state of each asset and its components, which is composed of many different data sources. Examples include asset field and sensor data, software and hardware configuration, 3D models, maintenance history, customer data and more. Based on the digital twin, Elements for IoT provides comprehensive capabilities to display, monitor and evaluate the history and current state of your assets according to the single source of truth principle. The Digital twin mirrors your objects in the field as a virtual representation and is the hub of all data-driven processes.

Automate the acquisition of knowledge and make specialist departments more effective

CONTACT Elements for IoT enables specialist departments to act independently. By using the no-/low-code principle they can easily meet new requirements and quickly define rules for identifying events and the desired software responses without the need for any programming or the support of central IT. By this value adding activities are implemented using automated workflows: for example, the execution of maintenance activities if measured values are exceeded, the launch of routine services for defined maintenance intervals and automated spare parts orders.
