Bridge the gap between OT & IT

  • Ideal operational technology (OT) engine: Step-by-step record navigation engine
    • Provides fast, predictable processing of binary structures
  • Ideal informational technology (IT) engine: Traditional SQL engine
    • Full SQL on top of binary data structures
  • Runs on all O.T. and I.T. platforms
    • Devices to servers and everything in between

FairCom EDGE has perfected the
bridge across these two engines

Connecting Core Systems with Edge Devices

EDGE IIoT Hub provides an easy path to connect all of your factory devices while enabling highly reliable, real-time communications with each other.

With the FairCom EDGE IIoT Hub in the middle of communications, OT engineers can intercept communications and enhance them to improve manufacturing processes in real time, enabling you to increase production efficiency, decrease risks, improve safety and increase success rates.

The EDGE IIoT Hub enables you to efficiently perform the following tasks with manufacturing equipment, devices, sensors, and processes:

  • Create feed
  • Back loops
  • Process alerts
  • Monitor trends
  • Enhance manufacturing processes in real time with machine learning, artificial intelligence, knowledge graphs, analytics
  • Implement high speed custom processing Collect data for local processing and for delivery to other systems, such as monitoring applications, data warehouses, data lakes, cloud providers, IT applications, etc. The data can be transferred to:
    • On-premise systems
    • The cloud

Every Environment is Unique,
Customize using Popular Languages

For real-time feedback and custom transformations, the Edge Hub makes it easy for programs to be integrated. In addition to these benefits, the EDGE IIoT Hub can also be controlled by external applications written in many other languages, such as C, C++, Python, Node.JS, C#, VB and more.

Operating Systems Flexibility

FairCom technology is known for its ability to be used with a plethora of platforms and operations systems. The FairCom EDGE IIoT Hub runs on almost all operating systems, such as Windows, Windows IoT, Linux, macOS, Raspbian. It also runs on 32-bit and 64-bit Intel and ARM processors, such as the Raspberry Pi, industrial PCs, laptops, and high-end servers. It also runs on specific PLCs, such as the Siemens Simatic Nanobox and the Rockwell Allen-Bradley CompactLogix 5480 Controllers. This flexibility results in you having the ability to run EDGE IIoT Hub in almost any Industry 4.0 environment – directly in the factory, in a remote data center and in the cloud.
