Purpose Built Applications for Industrial IoT
Virtual Fortress to Secure Your Plant
Our IoT connectivity appliance, Amphion is designed to securely connect your equipment to our private cloud by meeting the most stringent security requirements in the world. The Amphion device builds a virtual fortress that can be visualized by defensive walls built around individual equipment within a massive wall protecting the entire manufacturing operation. This Amphion is capable of using any of the 27 industry standard protocols it supports natively to create these defensive walls in a practical, manageable, and scalable framework.
The Amphion features listed below provide a strong defense that can be scalable from a single machine to many hundreds of machines.
The “Amphion” edge device is engineered to exceed the most demanding security requirements combining ease of configuration for remotely accessing your machines. The Red Amphion isolates each machine from other machines and everything else on your factory floor network. It interrogates machine controllers for status, production, and quality data. Then the data is relayed to the Green Amphion which securely encrypts and consolidates all collected data before it is transmitted to the machiNetCloud data centers via the Internet.
The machiNetCloud data centers around the world provide scalable, cloud-based data storage. They are home to our analytics, security, and IIoT applications that are accessible through any web browser to registered and authenticated users. Seamless integration with the backend systems such as ERP, MES, inventory management, or supply chain applications can be implemented through a host of open and flexible APIs.
Productivity at Your Fingertips
machiNetCloud mobile app gives you access to real-time insights at your fingertips. Gain access to real-time equipment status, equipment uptime, OEE performance and access to process and quality datapoints, just to name a few. Available on iOS and Android platforms to download.
