What is IoT?

Very briefly, the term can be explained as follows: The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of geographically distributed but interconnected devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects or people that are uniquely identifiable and have the ability to exchange data about themselves and their immediate environment within a network without the need for direct human-to-human or human-to-machine interaction.

Across industries, the IoT offers companies numerous optimisation opportunities. In the area of mobile machinery, for example, remote diagnosis and teleservice lead to an increase in availability and demonstrable cost savings for the manufacturer and the operator. The quality of the products can be improved during development by means of dynamic history data. Intelligent evaluation allows trends to be identified and forecasts to be made in order to implement predictive maintenance.

IoT enables you to...


Increase availability and quality, reduce costs at the same time

Cloud-based monitoring is the foundation of our IoT solutions. You gain full control over machines regardless of location,
components and entire fleets. Automated alarm functions in the event of limit values being exceeded and remote access help to avoid production stops, delivery delays and production errors.

Product development

Avoid weak points, accelerate time-to-market

Real operating and usage data are essential for the development and optimisation of products. With optiMEAS evaluate live and historical data and feed the result directly back into development. Or you can use captured data for comprehensive Big Data evaluations.

predictive maintenance

Recognize today what will not work tomorrow

The combined evaluation of current and historical machine data reveals correlations and trends. You can carry out maintenance and servicing processes with foresight on the basis of reliable forecasts of wear behaviour. This saves costs and resources.

smart services

Develop new sources of income, retain customers permanently

Data-supported services around a product offer enormous direct and indirect profit potential. For service providers and manufacturers who become service providers, but also for operators who save investment costs and gain flexibility by using 'as-a-service' offers.
