Sensor Bridge as middleware for sWave.NET®
Installation of the sWave.NET® Sensor Bridge in a factory closes the gap between the high security requirements of a production hall on the one hand, and the integrated world of digital services on the other. The Sensor Bridge acts as a "translator" between different protocols and the administration level of the sWave.NET® wireless network.
Simplified data integration, safe local pre-processing, as well as detailed statistics of use, are further functions of the Sensor Bridge, qualifying it as a central data hub for state-of-the-art production environments and digital business models in industry.
Thanks to the universal connectivity of the interface, the sWave.NET® Sensor Bridge can be integrated in every kind of production environment. The range of supported protocols is continually growing and currently includes e.g. REST (XML/json), http(s) Notifications and MODBUS TCP, all without the need for additional hardware.
First applications for the sWave.NET® Sensor Bridge are being realised in E-Kanban systems and in the communication between automated guided vehicles (AGV) and their superordinate control systems.
