What it does
Data visibility for better machine performance
The Nimbus IoT collates signals from industrial equipment for processing and publishing to the Cloud. Designed for monitoring small machines and automation systems it enables data visibility for determining machine health or process efficiency. It features industrial grade digital inputs, relay contacts and analog process (4–20mA) input channels to easily link process sensor inputs and standalone machinery to Industrial IoT cloud services.
Collect field operating data from your machine
The Nimbus IoT built-in cloud interface sends data from your machine directly to the Cloud – useful for facilities maintenance monitoring, replenishing consumables and remote diagnostic monitoring.
Direct wireless interface to field process inputs
Nimbus IoT converts, conditions and processes analog signals directly to wireless WiFi (801.11) or (eMTC) LTE Cat M1. No additional wireless modem required.
Easily integrates with your existing automation equipment
The Nimbus IoT natively supports MQTT Industrial IoT communications protocol. ModBus RTU master/slave communication port directly interfaces to metering and control automation. Application use cases include AMR (automatic meter reading), monitoring of remote asset productivity, energy consumption, and consumable supply tank levels. Nimbus onboard logic engine allows customization tailored to specific measurement and monitoring requirements.
Extra cloud interface security and Store and Forward data integrity
Connection and data security are paramount so the Nimbus IoT provides peace of mind with Transport Layer Secu- rity (TLS 1.2) protocol. In the event of a network communications failure the Nimbus IoT Store and Forward function buffers data locally, forwarding to the cloud server once network communications are reinstated, securely monitor- ing and recording with total data integrity.
