Janz Tec showcases SAP-certified IoT Edge systems for the SAP Cloud Platform
SAP SE certifies Janz Tec AG’s emIOT-A/iMX6 and emIOT-X IoT gateways for the SAP Cloud Platform. That makes the Paderborn-based company Janz Tec one of only a few suppliers worldwide to offer gateways for transferring sensor data into the SAP Cloud with full integration with SAP’s software solutions.
Janz Tec AG’s Industrial IoT gateway series was designed for the specific requirements of industrial production environments. SAP certification of the emIOT-A/iMX6 and emIOT-X gateways confirms that they can be integrated with the SAP Cloud Platform IoT Gateway Edge, which is used to connect to the SAP Cloud Platform Internet of Things Service and the SAP Cloud Platform. The certified hardware and software solution thus allows all sensor data to be transferred into the SAP Cloud Platform, giving users a head start on their SAP IoT projects. “The IoT gateways underline our long-standing expertise in the field of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) solutions,” says Michael Rennerich, Executive Director at Janz Tec. “Sensor technology is becoming ever more important in today’s production environments, so a company’s success ultimately depends on being able to transfer and analyse the data it gathers. Our gateways cover the requirements encountered in modern production environments in full, enabling our customers to get off to great start on their journey towards digitalisation. As a medium-sized company, we are particularly proud that Janz Tec AG is now one of only a few companies worldwide with with SAP Cloud Platform certification, joining renowned providers such as Dell, Hewlett Packard and Samsung,” says Rennerich.
The Janz Tec Edge platforms were tested in collaboration with the SAP Co-Innovation Labs (COIL), a global SAP partner-network for project-based solution development, especially for the innovative use of Edge with SAP. The two gateways are equipped with mobile communication (GPRS, UMTS, LTE) or low-power wide-area network technologies (narrowband IoT) to ensure optimum data transmission. Low maintenance and energy efficient, the systems also come with integrated WiFi and Bluetooth modules for easy connection to internal network applications. In decentralised infrastructures, the GPS module ensures fast and reliable determination of the exact position using GPS. Based on ARM processor architecture, the emIOT-A/iMX6 gateway is the ideal choice when it comes to ensuring low energy consumption in high-performance environments and covering a broader range of operating temperatures. The emIOT-X gateway, which is based on the Intel Atom technology, is equipped with various connectors such as CAN bus (Controller Area Network), RS232, and digital or analogue input/output systems. Both systems ensure that the sensor data obtained is transferred to the SAP Cloud quickly for data enrichment, further processing, and improving existing processes.
