The easyedge IoT Edge Platform can be applied in industrial environments with Modbus connectivity. In this context, by installing the easyedge an organization can for example monitor historical and real-time data regarding energy consumption and the number of items produced in each production line, resulting on an important business KPI: energy consumed per unit produced. Given the flexibility of the easyedge, the industry plant can have different energy meters installed from different manufacturers and technologies (Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP/IP), all integrated in a single or multiple inter connected EdgeNodes.
A possible example of the installation scheme can be an industry plant divided into three Modbus RTU sections. Each section can have an EdgeNode installed with different drivers, according to each equipment specification/vendor.
