Break Down Operations-Data Silos With Edge Connect Software

Enable Integration to Any OT Device Via Edge Drivers and Connectors

Hitachi's IIoT Core includes Edge Connect software that lets you collect data from proprietary industrial systems and run applications locally. It enables event processing, machine learn-ing models and more – all in an offline first deployment.

Edge Connect comes with many historian, sensor, computerized numeric control (CNC), programmable logic controller (PLC), distributed control system (DCS) and industrial gateway drivers for fast implementation of your edge computing needs. Don't see a driver you need? Let us know, and we can provide custom driver scripts to support your industrial gateway device.

Deep integration capabilities with both legacy and newer automation systems enable Edge Connect to manage the variety of devices in an industrial environment. Edge Connect software also provides support for many protocols and buses, such as RS232, RS485, CAN, Ethernet, Fieldbus and others.

Edge Connect software easily installs on an industrial PC (IPC) or gateway device and connects to operational technology (OT) devices and collects data, saving time in developing interfaces from scratch. You don't have to be an automation system expert to create custom flows of data from proprietary devices. Flows are created via a browser-based drag-and-drop interface, so no need to install user interface software. Edge Connect monitors the internet connection and buffers data locally, so when a connection is dropped or not available, the data is retained, and no data is ever lost.

  • Run anywhere. Edge Connect runs on most IoT gateways, industrial PCs or as a virtual machine (VM)
  • Collect data from anywhere. In just a few clicks, administrators can quickly and easily connect to any PLC, DCS, robotic systems, CNCs and other indus-trial assets.
  • Management. Remotely access Edge Connect to reboot it or reset gateways to factory settings. Also, upload firm-ware upgrades to a device.
