What is an Industrial IoT Gateway?

Industrial IoT Gateways enable wireless connectivity of legacy and remote industrial devices with next generation intelligent infrastructure
Industrial IoT Gateways are rugged by design and intended for critical systems and industrial environments where sensor nodes or I/O devices are utilised to obtain data. IoT Gateways can be configured with a range of different protocols which allows them to communicate with these end sensors nodes or I/O devices.

In many industries, there tends to be a large amount of legacy equipment that is installed without any means of connectivity to analyse the possible data they can provide, which leaves a lot of potentially useful data locked away in an array of equipment. IoT Gateways are designed to securely connect to the internet/cloud using WiFi, LAN or cellular communication, this connectivity provides a solution to unlock meaningful data from these legacy devices.

The introduction of IoT Gateways into industrial and mission critical applications helps to address the issue of interoperability of legacy systems and help avoid the incredibly large cost of replacing existing infrastructure with next generation equipment.

Ultimately, the adoption of IoT Gateways offers the ability to access previously hidden data from sensors, embedded controllers and IO devices that can be valuable to a wide range of businesses processes and applications such as:
 
  • Remote monitoring
  • Preventive maintenance
  • Production optimisation
  • Building automation

This data realisation allows the likes of control room applications, enterprise applications and other business applications analsyse, monitor and review the data to make critical business decisions, improvements and optimise processes.
