Introducing the OEM Toolbox 

 

HMS’s OEM Toolbox provides device and machine manufacturers with a toolkit for tailoring the functionality of HMS industrial communication gateways. Users benefit from industrially pre-qualified communication gateways and existing certifications and approvals when developing a customized communication solution.

Leverage on HMS certified hardware

HMS’s OEM Toolbox is an open development platform that offers OEM customers the possibility to develop their own application to run within the Linux environment of HMS industrial gateways.

A software development kit (SDK) for the Open Gateway Platform contains development tools for software engineers and enables the creation of customized applications for the gateways included in the OEM Toolbox offer.

 

Realize your own IIoT ambitions

Using the SDK, it is possible to quickly develop new connectivity solutions to fulfill traditional automation tasks as well as realizing emerging IIoT applications. The functionality of the gateway can be tailormade for a specific application. Proprietary communication protocols, tailored control applications, IT/OT bridges, edge computing, etc.. can all be directly loaded into the gateways provided by HMS.

The toolkit also enables connectivity to IoT software platforms such as ThingWorks, SAP, Microsoft Azure, Oracle since standard SDK agents have been pre-verified with the gateways.
