Device intelligence and networking
According to IHS Markit, there will be some 75 billion IoT devices worldwide by 2025, which will be connected to the Internet in most industrial sectors. The annual Cisco Visual Networking Index (VNI) speaks of a tripling of data traffic by 2022. But how can we get these devices to intercommunicate and how must the interfaces between human-beings and the device be designed?
It is undisputed that: device intelligence and networking requirements are on the increase. However: to-date, no IoT networking standard exists. Here, acceed supports the development of efficient systems consisting of high-quality, select embedded components and interactive software communication with its project-specific software service.
With their sensors, embedded systems can measure light and record movements, thus enabling them to control room temperatures and artificial lighting efficiently on this basis. Electricity, gas and water consumption at production facilities can be adapted to save energy if the embedded network components intercommunicate intelligently. Well-adjusted embedded systems reduce outage time (keyword predictive maintenance) and secure manufacturing procedures.
Protocols and programming
The acceed experts determine the possible technical communication means and protocols (Ethernet-LAN, WLAN, fibreglass, narrowband IoT, LTE CAT M1 and CAT 1, ZigBee, LoRa, Modbus, MQTT, CoAP and several more) together with the customer for the specific project and individually. Made-to-measure software and task-specific programming ensure optimum interplay of the various system components and offer the interfaces for person-to-machine communication (operating elements, displays, protocols, evaluations).
acceed knows its carefully selected manufacturers’ hardware, the strengths and opportunities provided by the various components just as the alternatives and is already able to provide valuable support during the project planning phase if handling the realisation of IoT systems and embedded solutions. acceed wishes that its devices can be used as fast as possible. Form the customer’s side, it should be possible to reduce the work and time required to a minimum. The target is individual solutions with fitting service - successful projects the result.
Hardware ready to run
Pre-assembled and ready for use
Most network components (Box PCs, embedded controllers, switches, access points gateways and media servers) are available in different versions and with a large number of equipment variants. acceed compiles ideal the project and use-specific equipment. At the customer’s wish, devices - also in large quantities - are configured and pre-assembled so that they are immediately available for use at the customer’s.
Together with the customer, acceed finds the right device for the planned use. Here, all the important criteria such as the temperature range, CPU and GPU performance, dimensions, voltage range, mechanical protection, failsafe performance, interfaces, data transfer bandwidth, software support, operating systems and much more is examined and evaluated.
Embedded computers - compact, ultra-compact, fanless
The wide selection of devices from various manufacturers is supported by individual CPU, RAM, SSD and HDD configuration and a wide range of specific PCIe and mini PCIe boards.
Powerful industry PCs
Robust, powerful, failsafe industry computers for use in harsh, demanding environments offer the optimum solution with the best possible flexibility for later adaptations and extensions with individual use of task-optimised plug-in cards. The experts at acceed are already happy to help you with information and technical support during the planning phase. Thanks to our good relationships, adaptations from the manufacturer’s side are also possible in case of larger quantities.
PXI systems for research and the industry
Powerful PXI systems form the basis for reliable automation applications, demanding test benches and research and development tasks. acceed not only supplies the basic systems, but also equipment with further task or project-related components.
