HMS IoT Solutions

HMS Edge solutions directly solve for and are often key in enabling the Smart Factory challenges.

HMS Edge solutions for IoT include:

  • Remote Asset Monitoring

  • Easy, Secure Remote access

  • OT/IT Integration and Analytics

  • Predictive Maintenance/ OEE

  • Machine as a Service (XaaS)

Remote Asset Monitoring

HMS IoT gateways provide easy secure connectivity to assets beyond the 4 walls of the plant. Isolated equipment is traditionally too difficult or too expensive to access. Leveraging wired or wireless (WiFi or Cellular) connectivity to remote assets liberates the data from these remote islands of information.

remote-access-image

Easy, Secure Remote Access

Drastically reduce trips to customer sites by enabling service technicians to easily VPN into machines through Award winning [link to control design page] Remote Access technologies which provide transparent access to a device, like a PLC, for troubleshooting and programming – as if directly connected – and IT approved!

OT-to-IT-image

OT/IT Integration

Break down functional silos and deliver actionable insights by transparently connecting traditionally proprietary equipment into IT/Enterprise/Cloud systems through industry standard technologies like MQTT, OPCUA and Rest Web Services APIs.

predictive maintenance

Predictive Maintenance / OEE

Smart Reliability programs are founded on the premise that historical routine based maintenance do not detect most failures, and are often too early or too late. Condition based monitoring enables early warning indicators which are an essential component of an overall equipment effectiveness program. Moving beyond “seeing” to ‘predicting’ is entirely possible once the basic data insights and failure modes are enabled and understood.

Xaas-image

XaaS / Machine as a Service

As hardware margins continue to erode, the burden is on the service organization to innovate with new outcome based solutions. Disruptive Pay as You Go and “X” (your value) as a service models are certain to rapidly change the landscape of how customers value suppliers. End users are also starting to shift to Opex vs Capex buying to reduce risks and remain nimbler to ever changing market conditions.

Whether you have tried and failed – or are looking for a partner to show you the safe path – HMS has the experience and products to take the risk out of your journey. How? Virtually all of the IoT value starts at the Industrial Edge.

HMS is best in class as providing both OT Connectivity and OT integration solutions. We help you easily connect, quickly see what is happening, reveal insights and enable the integration via solution partners to ultimately realize the Digital Transformation dream of prediction, pro-action and business changing outcome-based services.
