MDE:connect – the solution for flexible access to production process data



With the new MDE:connect, Janz Tec offers a hardware-software package of solutions for flexible machine data collection in digitalised production processes. The availability of process data makes it possible to implement numerous applications including control desk, big data analytics, predictive maintenance and KPI monitoring. Together with its partner verlinked, the provider of the “connect-Gateway” software, Janz Tec provides the solution required for the protocol-independent connection of heterogeneous industrial controllers. MDE:connect will be presented at the SPS IPC Drives 2018 trade fair at the Janz Tec stand (7-394) in hall 7. Here you will have the chance to see the possibilities of networked production for yourself in a live and interactive virtual reality demo.

State-of-the-art production in the field of IoT is based on complete networking of the shop floor with traditional IT applications. Machine data needs to be provided to ERP, CRM or SCM systems for direct further processing. During this process, data must be translated from fieldbus protocols to modern IT protocols. Elaborate and inflexible individual solutions are usually developed to complete this task. 

The collaboration between Janz Tec and verlinked now offers a new solution in the form of MDE:connect. Using the integrated connect-Gateway, Janz Tec’s systems become flexible interpreters in the world of Industry 4.0. Be it from CAN to OPC-UA or from Profinet to MQTT, each conversion task can easily be configured via a web-based interface. Flexibly definable data points can be automatically translated from the MDE:connect IoT gateway to various protocols.   Adjustments and changes can be made with just a few mouse clicks. With CAN, OPC-UA, S7Com, MODBUS and many more, the connect-Gateway software already supports a large number of industrial interfaces for which Janz Tec also provides hardware.
