What is Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to a network of devices (Things) that collect and share data. In practice, this is made possible by extending the network connectivity of traditionally "dumb" or non-internet-enabled physical devices and everyday objects. These devices communicate and interact with each other over the Internet where they can be remotely monitored and controlled. The term Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the industrial subset of IoT, the so-called Industry 4.0.

Internet of Things (IoT) The HMS Networks and SyTech partnership provides reports and dashboards from data anywhere in the world. It does this by using Ewon Flexy devices in remote locations to make data and alarms accessible to XLReporter. With the raw data, reports and dashboards are produced to:
  • INFORM - what happened?
  • DIAGNOSE - why did it happen?
  • PREDICT - could there be consequences?
  • RESOLVE - what is the remedy?

An Effective Solution

Collect Data

The eWON Flexy devices push Historical Data and Alarms through a VPN tunnel to the HMS Talk2M “DataMailbox”.

Synchronize Data

XLReporter’s DataMailbox connector periodically collects all the new data to storage. The transfer uses secure HTTPS with no public IP exposure.

Produce Reports

Create reports from “out-of-box” templates or design your own in either the XLReporter design studio or Microsoft Excel. Produce report automatically using XLReporter’s built-in scheduler or from on-demand dashboards.

Distribute Reports

Publish reports as Excel workbooks, encrypted PDF, web pages, CSV files and XML files and distribute them automatically to email, SMS, FTP server, local/network printer and file server.

Metrics and KPIs

Produce reports automatically or on-demand from the Ewon Flexy DataMailbox storage. Retrieve sample values and "out-of-box" metrics on performance, statistics and runtimes that have been filtered and scaled according to your requirement.

In addition to the standard set of metrics provided by the historian, XLReporter provides an extended set of calculations specific to industry. XLReporter provides a rich set of calculations for historical data
Metrics are readily available without any scripting or programming. Simply select the tags of interest, the time frame and calculation e.g., average temperature over each hour of the day, and let XLReporter do the rest.

Alarms Reports

Managing alarm performance is one step towards improving your process.
Produce alarm dashboards and better understand alarm activity by setting filter and search criteria. Add historical data to the dashboard and learn if there are correlations between process deviations and alarm behavior.
