Engineered by Bosch Rexroth’s leading experts, the IoT Gateway is a system of fully coordinated hardware and
software components for new and existing machines.
The IoT Gateway makes it easy to connect to the Internet of Things (IoT) without intervening in the
automation logic. The precisely coordinated combination of control hardware and software for implementing IT
applications collects sensor and process data, transmits it to MES, cloud applications or local machine
state monitoring systems and enables process data analysis. The modular software concept of the IoT
is based on Linux, Java apps and open interfaces. The configuration and handling are web-based, free from
programming and performed logically in three simple steps.
A huge time and cost savings, no software is needed to set up the system; everything is configurable through
web interfaces. Furthermore, users don’t have to learn a programming language to utilize the system,
it easy to get started. And, scalable, embedded control hardware complements three system apps that make
data recording, processing and forwarding easy.
Dashboard App – The Central Hub
The Dashboard App provides web-based interfaces for administration, configuration, parameterization and
visualization of process data.
Users receive a detailed overview of the collected data and the device’s app
enables local monitoring of process data via a standard browser without special software.
Devices App – Flexible Peripheral Connections
The Devices App establishes connections with peripherals such as sensors and signal values are converted
into process data (known as endpoints). Connection options for this app are analog voltage and current
signals, digital voltage signals, OPC UA, Open Core Interface for Controls, Siemens S7, RFID and Bluetooth
Processing App – Fast Data Transfer
The Processing App converts process data into information using logical and mathematical operations. The app
then forwards that information to higher-level systems such as Bosch SI – Production Performance Management,
Bosch Sensor Cloud, Bosch Energy Platform, Bosch Rexroth ODiN, MES systems and databases.
