HMS Networks and Canary Labs simplify Industrial IoT

9 Jul 2020  |
HMS Networks, working in conjunction with Canary Labs, is pleased to announce seamless integration with the Canary Enterprise Historian. The solution allows the Ewon Flexy router from HMS to log time-stamped process data with the Canary Enterprise Historian, with no programming required.

The Flexy gateway pulls data from any supported PLC from ABB, Rockwell, Siemens, Mitsubishi, Omron, Eaton and others. Canary’s Enterprise Historian is configured to pull PLC data from Flexy’s embedded OPC-UA server, and data flows automatically from Flexy directly to the Canary Historian.

Canary’s Process Historian is a full featured Time Series Historian designed to be easy to use and maintain. The Canary solutions offer Asset Model and Axiom, two software applications which enable quick and easy model building. Data from installed equipment is used to build a “digital twin” in Asset Model and Axiom allows the user to visualize the asset model. The assets can be monitored and tracked for unusual activity during the complete process and measured against defined limits. The events are then logged in the Canary Database for future analytics.

“The more we use Axiom, the more we’re discovering advantages. The sky is the limit for our possibilities.”

Every manufacturer and asset owner can benefit from gathering more information from their equipment and this solution allows manufacturers to pull data from their inhouse machines as well as systems they ship to their end customers. “This off-the-shelf solution for connecting machines is yet another example of HMS making IoT solutions easy to deploy for machine builders and systems integrators” says Jim Fitzwater, Vice President of Sales at HMS Networks.
