Emutex developed the ubiworx™ IoT framework to allow rapid development and deployment of Industrial IoT solutions.
This complements many other IoT frameworks which tend to be cloud focused and omit important aspects such as protocol translation, data normalization, sensor configuration and sensor management. ubiworx™ enables Industrial IoT customers to rapidly develop a complete end-to-end solution that takes data from sensor to cloud without, in many cases, having to develop any software.
Gathering Data and Telemetry Reading
from our web portal
The goal: to build a low cost IIoT solution to run a trial, monitoring a number of sensors in a client's factory.
The Supermicro E100-8Q IoT Gateway System
The main advantage of the E100-8Q is the low cost due to the Intel® Quark CPU and the integrated digital (GPIO) and analog (ADC) I/O interfaces.
On the right is a trend graph of the temperature and humidity. It also clearly shows an outage where power was cut.
Temperature and Humidity trends
HOW WE ACHIEVED THIS:
A total of seven SuperMicro E100-8Q gateways were used.
Three were used as Wi-Fi access points ("branch" nodes). Four were used as Wi-Fi clients ("leaf" nodes).
A Linux VM provided by the client was used as the broker ("root" node).
The ubiworx™ broker collects data from all clients and provides a single web portal to manage an entire estate of gateways and sensors.
Overall, our client was happy to announce that this trial passed all of the original test parameters.
