Software tool for fast and flexible connectivity

23 November 2020

Kontron is now able to offer, through its subsidiary Kontron AIS GmbH, the FabEagle connect software tool which links manufacturing and IT to enable fast and reliable data transfer.

FabEagle connect is a software for interface integration and can be used quickly and flexibly for both existing and new systems. It is said to enable machine builders and factory operators to create fast and reliable connectivity for their Industry 4.0 and IoT applications in the manufacturing and IT environment. The modular and configurable structure of the software tool offers a variety of ready-made functions and interfaces for manufacturing and IT, including cloud interfaces for transferring data from manufacturing to big data applications via REST, MQTT or AMQP as well as standard IT interfaces for connecting manufacturing with business processes such as OPC UA, SOAP, FTP and TCP/IP. 

Automation interfaces for data transfer of controllers are also part of the standard offering.

It is possible to quickly configure interfaces and targeted data processing can be performed. This way, machine and system manufacturers can create the basis for their own IoT and cloud applications. Factory operators can use the software tool to link their production with IT systems in order to control production processes in a targeted way. The transparency gained is also said to offer the possibility of data analysis and process optimisation. A continuous operation of the interfaces is ensured by various diagnostic functions. Applications for the transfer of small and large data volumes can be implemented without additional workload. Detailed documentation enables the user to create additional components for special interfaces and data transformations in the programming language C#.
