Exploring Vortex Edge Connect: Web UI Tutorial

Following the successful launch of Vortex Edge Connect in May 2017, we produced a series of tutorials to assist system developers evaluate the software. Vortex Edge Connect enables data interoperability and connectivity between industrial data sources and applications, independent of whether they are deployed on local edge networks close to machines or in the cloud.

In this first tutorial, we feature the web-based User Interface attribute of Vortex Edge Connect which is running on Vortex Edge Smart Gateway connecting a ModBus, potentiometer and LED lights. Vortex Edge Connect is pre-configured on the Vortex Edge Smart Gateway which collects and processes data from the sensor, then is shared with other communication endpoints.  Vortex Edge Connect is an extensible and scalable framework for connecting different endpoint technologies together in an Industrial Internet of Things system.

The Vortex Edge Connect is available for evaluation. For inquiries, contact PrismTech.

Vortex Edge PMQ featured at the 2017 Industrial Summit in Taiwan

Intel Summit Taiwan 5

ADLINK and PrismTech presented the Vortex Edge Predictive Maintenance & Quality (PMQ) at the Intel Industrial Event held in Le-Meridien, Taipei on July 18, 2017. The event showcased various Industrial IoT applications and demos from robotics and automation, to asset and logistics management.

Both ADLINK and PrismTech team featured a Conveyor Belt system that detects excessive weight, abnormal temperature and vibrations that are usually early symptoms of a potential asset problem. The conveyor belt system includes weight, temperature and vibration sensors that feed data into the Vortex Edge Smart Gateway – a small footprint ruggedized computer that is preconfigured to support asset data capture and PMQ results deployment at the edge, especially within harsh environments.

“It’s been such a good experience to meet many people from different IIoT areas and presenting our amazing technologies such as the Vortex Edge PMQ. I’m excited that this will be a good start to collaborate with many key players in the Industrial IoT space particularly in Asia.” says Janet Peng, Account Manager (APAC) at PrismTech.

PrismTech in collaboration with ADLINK, IBM and Intel developed Vortex Edge PMQ – a fully integrated hardware, data connectivity and predictive analytics solutions that addresses the challenge on predicting and identifying system problems that can cause disruptions and unplanned downtime.

Since its launch in October 2016, the Vortex Edge PMQ has gathered significant interest from businesses within manufacturing and logistics industry. Following the success at the Intel Industrial Event, PrismTech and ADLINK will be showcasing the Conveyor Belt demo at the VM World events in Las Vegas, Nevada (USA) and Fira, Barcelona (Spain). The details of these events will be announced shortly.
