Shop-floor gateway provides interface between IIoT hardware (including third-party) and the nextLAP AI Production-Process-Platform IP/1

Munich, 28 September 2018 – nextLAP GmbH (www.nextlap.de), a specialist in IIoT solutions, has launched the new generation of its shop-floor gateway, smartCONTROLLER, which builds a bridge between IIoT hardware on the shop floor and the nextLAP AI Production Process Platform IP/1. The gateway connects the IIoT hardware developed in-house by nextLAP and is also plug-and-play-compatible with intelligent hardware from third-party providers, such as data glasses, scanners, cameras and driverless transport systems (DTS). The new generation of the solution makes automation of production and logistics processes even faster and easier.

nextLAP is a provider of AI-based solutions for the digital management and automation of production and logistics processes. The proprietary cloud-based AI Production-Process-Platform IP/1 is a data hub with real-time evaluation. When fully integrated, it can be used to implement applications for AI-supported optimisation of material flows in factories, for example.

The IP/1 platform creates a digital real-time map of the production and logistics processes. Real-time data and existing empirical values are pooled on the platform and put into context. Using algorithms, the platform can make autonomous decisions for improvement and feed them back into the process. It instantly recognises anomalies, autonomously identifies potential problem-solving scenarios and takes countermeasures before a fault can actually occur.

smartCONTROLLER: automation made super easy
The IP/1 platform integrates both IIoT hardware developed in-house by nextLAP and technologies from third parties such as scanners or data glasses. The smartCONTROLLER shop-floor gateway enables a “connect whatever you like” approach. Using plug-and-play, it can be easily installed on existing hardware on the shop floor such as a shelf. Its extremely compact, robust housing (protection class IK06) makes the gateway ideal for industrial use. It is affordable, simple and flexible to use, making it a viable alternative to complex automation technology.

“The new-generation smartCONTROLLER is even more closely geared to the requirements of the shop floor and ensures that production-critical data is securely communicated. In addition to an RJ-45 network connection, the smartCONTROLLER can also be wirelessly connected to the production network. The solution can be updated over the air and has optimised interfaces such as an additional USB hub inside the housing, which allows a scanner to be connected, for example. The power supply, or more specifically, the ability to charge connected third-party devices, has also been integrated,” explains André Ziemke, Managing Director of nextLAP GmbH.
