Get insights from the cloud with acirro+
Move your machine data to the cloud with our fully IIoT ready X2 HMIs and BoX2 devices, and gain insights to streamline operations.
If you are a Maker of Things, a machine builder or a provider of other technical equipment, your business runs on data. Data that can tell when your machines are running efficiently and indicate when you need to introduce maintenance or other measures.
The threshold to accelerating into digital has never been lower than now, closing the gap between OT and IT.
Our X2* HMIs and BoX2* devices are now IIoT ready by standard and fully prepared to enable you to move your machine data to the cloud.
Easily set up a secure cloud connection and begin moving machine data to the cloud using our acirro+ IIoT platform. The solution is easy to implement without needing to rewire your existing installation or re-program an existing application.
Viewing machine data in visual dashboards gives you a great overview and provides insights to streamline your machine’s operation, creating new business opportunities.
* IIoT connectivity is introduced successively. Please check actual status here.
No matter what, you can find a smart solution to start digitalization!
I am building a new machine
Install a X2 operator panel for operator communication and you are good to go! If you don’t need an X2 operator panel, install a BoX2 IIoT gateway instead and you are good to go!
My machine already has a X2 operator panel installed
If it's a newer X2 panel, it is already IIoT ready. Buy a cloud subscription and you are good to go! If it's an older X2 panel, replace with a newer X2 panel, or install a BoX2 gateway, and you are good to go!
My machine already has a 3rd party operator panel installed
Install a BoX2 IIoT gateway and you are good to go!
My machine does not have an operator panel
Install a X2 operator panel to introduce operator communication and you are good to go! If you don't need an operator panel, simply install a BoX2 IIoT gateway and you are good to go!
Connects to all automation brands
Communicate with hundreds of unique PLCs and automation equipment from all major manufacturers through an extensive driver list. This enables X2 HMIs and BoX2 gateways to access all vital data hidden in your machines or facility and send it to the cloud.
No re-wiring or re-programming required
Getting your data to the cloud has never been simpler and more secure. Without any need to re-wire your existing application or re-program the controller in your application. Simply use one of the new X2 panels or BoX2 gateways. Go to SmartStore, buy a subscription and activate the device. Make sure to have the latest software versions of iX and WARP. Define the data you want to upload to cloud, set transfer intervals and resolution. And your data will start streaming.
