We distinguish between three types of containers: Standard Docker Container, Microsoft Edge Module, and netFIELD Application Container. With netFIELD OS you can run them all.
Speed up your data and analytics use case implementation by deploying ready to use containers. Containers can be easily deployed on your devices trough our platform. Each container is equipped with a user friendly web application which is seamlessly integrated as a plugin into the local Device Manager.
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.
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.
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.
Acquire device health data and use it for analysis, visualization or alerting. Gain transparancy and take action to device performance and health.
The netFIELD App OPC UA Client 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.
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.
Provide a high performance MQTT communication bus on your device to set up reliable data pipelines between multiple container applications.
