Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. and ILS Technology, a Telit company, announced that they have collaborated on the e-Factory IoT Gateway, Mitsubishi Electric’s new Machine-to-Cloud (M2C) industrial appliance for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The Internet-enabled gateway is powered by the deviceWISE IoT platform from ILS Technology for seamless and secure M2C connectivity and data transfers.

The Mitsubishi Electric e-Factory IoT Gateway improves information visibility and accessibility for energy management applications. The appliance provides the ability to macro-process data and transform it into actionable information prior to sending it to the cloud. Once the data is stored in the cloud, charts are automatically created to provide real-time visual key performance indicators.

“For years, companies have been aggregating data from a variety of devices and storing it in a database in its raw format or in spreadsheets. Rarely is it used to provide any value to the organization,” said Sloan Zupan, senior product manager, Mitsubishi Electric Automation. “With the e-Factory IoT Gateway, customers can identify which facilities, production lines, work cells, and shifts are underperforming compared to other areas of the organization.”

The e-Factory IoT Gateway can help organizations drive down production costs and reduce energy consumption while optimizing automated asset utilization. Cloud-based analytics can also benefit organizations that want to shift from reactive or preventive maintenance to predictive maintenance.

“Mitsubishi Electric and ILS Technology have had a long-standing collaboration on developing best-in-class industrial automation solutions. By adding M2C integration, the e-Factory IoT Gateway unlocks additional levels of operational insights, business intelligence and big data analytics across industrial markets,” commented Fred Yentz, president and CEO of ILS Technology. “e-Factory IoT Gateway customers also have full access to our ever-expanding deviceWISE ecosystem of industry experts for support and integration services.”

Mitsubishi Electric energy management products can be easily added to existing energy monitoring installations from various vendors. The e-Factory IoT Gateway can collect information from various sources and provide a common data processing and cloud transport methodology.
