SPS IPC Drives 2017: Using demonstrations of its IT products, ADS-TEC shows how Industry 4.0 is already functioning successfully

Secure in Industry 4.0: The powerful IoT service platform Big-LinX® as modular solution for constantly growing structures
Collect and evaluate data, as well as monitor, analyse and remotely access globally distributed machines and systems – this and much more is offered by the cloud-based Big-LinX system, which is constantly being expanded with new functions and has developed from a pure connectivity platform into the IoT service platform.

With its open interface structure and the large number of operating modes, Big-LinX is designed for customisation and growing with the customer's dynamic structure. Remote maintenance and dashboard-controlled remote service, condition monitoring, device management and future data analysis with the help of predictive maintenance applications are just some of the features that can be individually structured as needed according to the market environment and simply integrated in existing IT systems.

As the operator of an IoT service platform, ADS-TEC stands out, in particular, by being able to offer a special solution for the Chinese market. Officially recognised access to machines and systems stationed in China is thereby ensured.

In combination with ADS-TEC firewalls and routers of the IRF2000 series as well as the X-Remote operating software, which – in addition to the already proven local version – will be presented in an online version for the first time on the trade show, a highly effective modular solution is created for extensive IoT applications. Also included here are all other IT operating devices from ADS-TEC, which can be easily integrated in this modular system: for example, the machine mounted terminals for the hygiene sector, the tried-and-tested vehicle mounted terminals for vehicles and machines in robust environments, the panel PCs and displays for cabinet installation as well as the mobile industrial tablet computer TabX.

Our complete depth of development and decades of experience in development and production are the basis for flexible alignment with increasingly complex customer needs.

High-calibre IT security technology according to the state of the art supports demanding customers in meeting the due diligence required for networked systems. ADS-TEC supplies professional solutions, 100% made in Germany.

Industrial VPN router and firewall: The IRF2000 series as security gateway technology to the Big-LinX® cloud services
Everything from a single source for more security in the Internet of Things: Big-LinX in combination with firewalls and routers from ADS-TEC form the ideal combination for a security system of the highest level. The extensive software functions are designed both for use as VPN routers with OpenVPN, IPsec or for SmartCard-secured VPN connection with the Big-LinX® IoT service platform as well as for use as high-speed firewall in industrial manufacturing networks. Through the integration of the OSGiTM technology, it is possible to expand the device with your own Java-based applications and functions. New is the DNV GL certification for the maritime sector. The broad area between ship and harbour, including the supplier and bridge area, can be served with the recently certified firewall of the IRF2000 series, which is already being used successfully by customers.

All operating devices and products from ADS-TEC are constantly being further developed and optimised with respect to the growing demands. Precisely this will be on display in Nuremberg. Our improved exhibition booth concept will allow visitors to ADS-TEC to experience every product live and thereby learn what added values can be generated from the broad spectrum of IT solutions.
