Ready to use containers

Acquire data from your field network easily.

netFIELD OS

Container types

We distinguish between three types of containers: Standard Docker Container, Microsoft Edge Modules, and netFIELD Application Containers. On our OS you can run them all.

Container Portfolio

Speed up your data and analytics use case implementation by deploying our ready to use containers. Our containers can be easily deployed on your devices trough our platform. Each of them is equipped with a user friendly web application which is seamlessly integrated as a plugin into the local Device Manager.

Network Topology PROFINET
Monitor your network topology quickly and precisely to react immediately on changes and ensure compliance.

Detect your real network structure (topology), all relevant node, interface, and port information. This data is provided on the Message Broker for further processing by 3rd party applications.

Passive Mode PROFINET
Capture data from your PROFINET network without interference for your condition monitoring and advanced analytics.

Listen to the PROFINET data traffic on the connected field network (OT network) and captures it without interfering with the field communication. The device itself does not actively participate in the data traffic within the field network.

cifX Manager
Configure Hilscher standard devices based on netX controller hardware and collect IO-data independent of your fieldbus.

Load firmware, provide fieldbus configurations and read IO-data from your Hilscher standard devices. With this container, you have full control over the fieldbus independent programming interface to netX-based hardware.

Device Monitoring
Monitor your device resource usage, disk/volume health, containers, and other relevant information.

Acquire device health data and use it for analysis, visualization or alerting. Gain transparancy and take action to device performance and health.

OPC UA Publisher
Collect data from OPC UA servers for your condition monitoring and advanced analytics.

The OPC UA Publisher enables you to collect data from OPC UA servers and publish these to the local message bus and/or the Edge Platform. This container handles multiple OPC UA server sessions, provides the functionality to OPC browse trees and monitor items. All data is provided as interoperable and easy to process JSON encoded messages.

OPC UA Server
Expose your message bus data as an OPC UA server endpoint.

OPC UA is a standard that ensures interoperability between a broad set of manufacturing processes and equipment. Provide continuously selected data points from the device message bus as an OPC UA endpoint. Connect with your standard OPC UA client to consume and visualize information that is relevant to your use case.

netFIELD Proxy
Make local data centrally available in the Edge Platform and visualize it in the Edge Portal.

Transport data from the device message broker to the Edge Platform. At the Edge Platform, this data is exposed as a Web Socket Secure endpoint. You are free to configure which data topics are transported. Stream this data into analytics pipelines or realtime dashboards.

Siemens MindSphere
Provide network topology and OPC UA data from the field to your Siemens MindSphere account.

Provide continuously a sequence of measurements (time series) produced by OPC UA Servers through the OPC UA Publisher to the Siemens MindSphere services. These measurements can be automatically combined with the network topology and device identification data provided by the Network Topology container.

Message Broker
Create data pipelines between containers and integrate them with your applications.

Provide a high performance MQTT communication bus on your device to set up relaiable data pipelines between multiple container applications.
