Endress+Hauser launches IIoT ecosystem
Endress+Hauser has launched its IIoT solution platform, Netilion, an ecosystem combining digital services and system components to improve the lifecycle and asset management, maintenance, and support of instruments and analysers.
The company says Netilion enables users to keep track of their installed base, documentation and data management, and instruments’ performance and health status. Netilion’s digital services available today are Scanner, Analytics, Health, Library and Value.
Netilion Scanner is a free smartphone app that guides the user in capturing field instrument asset data, while utilising QR codes or RFID tags. It can store images and instrument location and accessibility. Critical and quality-relevant information can also be saved, associated with the instrument tag.
Netilion system components such as field gates and edge devices can be used to upload installed base information and create lists of the instruments, without having to interact with the control system. The installed base information in the digital service Netilion Analytics can be used to create a digital twin of the system and analysed with the help of dashboards to initiate proactive maintenance measures for critical instruments or swap out discontinued instruments.
Netilion Health digital service visualises the diagnostic data provided by an instrument and receives instructions to address the issue. This improves the ability to respond in cases where maintenance or service is required. It can be used to track the condition of the instrument so that other maintenance optimisation measures can be initiated.
Netilion Library helps users organise working files and documents, and is a file sharing and data management service for the complete lifecycle of an instrument. Files can be continuously added to the digital twin in a traceable manner so that they are easily available remotely. This industrial file management service safely stores documents and makes them available to any device capable of hosting a web browser. This saves significant time when carrying out maintenance or engineering activities since the often tedious search for information is eliminated.
Netilion Value is a digital service that collects process data from the field and makes it accessible anytime and anywhere. It displays the values in various features such as the dashboard, history and tracking map.
The Netilion digital services can be used separately or in concert to improve the management, maintenance and support of instrumentation systems — regardless of instrument or analyser type or vendor.
