In the field of IoT, gateways, which process, filter, analyze data are essential to gather the process and machine data, which is the base of further process optimization. Kontron offers various specific devices for edge and fog computing, which are designed for harsh industrial environments and 24/7 fan less operation.
The HMI family Kontron Flatclient (industrial PanelPCs) or Kontron FlatView (industrial monitors) will be used to provide visual process information for machine control, but also process information via SCADA system or results of an AI (artificial intelligence) system.
Once the data is collected, it is normally stored and processed, e.g. AI, in servers or cloud instances, where Rackmount computers are used. The so called Kontron KISS server family offers scalable performance from entry level to high end dual processor machines.
All these products can be easily be customized at Kontron premises
