Belden has introduced the OpEdge-8D device from Hirschmann to further advance Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity in large, complex industrial networks with edge computing to put operational data to better use.
The OpEdge-8D meets the fast-growing need for a seamless, secure and reliable way to connect operational systems with information systems. The solution gives organisations a new way to run applications that manage and analyse large amounts of data and create actionable insights that can optimise production processes and improve efficiency.
“As the number of connected devices increases, driven by the IIoT, many organisations struggle with a way to leverage massive volumes of data for smarter, more effective management of operational processes,” said Jeremy Friedmar, senior product manager for edge solutions at Belden. “The OpEdge-8D leverages the latest IT technologies to streamline the process of bringing local operational data to where it can be integrated quickly in a variety of applications that will produce insights that ultimately improve efficiency, maximise uptime and enable continuous process improvement.”
Suitable for any industrial setting, the OpEdge-8D is ideal for manufacturing, energy and transportation companies looking to unite IT and OT data – from the sensor to the cloud.
