Industrial IoT Starter Kit

Data Acquisition and Edge Computing for Cloud-based Manufacturing IoT

Use the Industrial IoT Starter Kit as starting point for your journey towards manufacturing IoT. The pre-installed dataFEED OPC Suite provides access to process- and machine data in PLCs from leading manufacturers such as Siemens SIMATIC S7, Rockwell ControlLogix, B&R, and Mitsubishi.

Support for AWS IoT Greengrass and Azure IoT Edge allows for the deployment of workloads via the respective cloud platform. Initial efforts to set up a first manufacturing IoT solution are minimized, while open standards such as OPC UA protect investments and offer full flexibility for future extensions.

Industrial IoT Starter Kit has been certified for use with Amazon AWS IoT Greengrass and Microsoft Azure IoT Edge.



Manufacturing IoT with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure

  • Support for AWS IoT and Microsoft Azure reference architectures
  • Equally suited for deployment in production as well as for proof of concepts in laboratory environments
  • Pre-installation of complete software stack for production connectivity and edge computing

Best-in-Class Connectivity

  • Access to various data sources (controllers, sensors, OPC UA/OPC Classic Server, ...)
  • Suitable for data acquisition in brownfield and greenfield integration projects
  • No change of security and firewall settings or any other modifications in automation network required

Industrial Grade Solution

  • Reliability of dataFEED OPC Suite proven in more than 10,000 installations
  • Microsoft Windows Embedded operating system
  • Robust Hardware (HPE GL20)

Flexible, Open, Easy to Use

  • Flexible and secure architecture, supporting OPC UA and other standards
  • Minimized configuration and system integration effort
  • Easy to use, no expert knowledge required
  • Link of production line to AWS IoT or Microsoft Azure in less than a day
