How It Works

  1. Add a machine connection

    Natively connect with network-based protocols such as OPC UA, as well as legacy equipment.

  2. Standardize attributes

    Standardize attributes across sources so your data can speak to everyone–from operators to supervisors to management.

  3. Customize data for dashboards

    Define the attributes you want to measure and define custom machine states.
