Ewon Flexy from HMS Networks achieves ThingWorx Ready status

HMS Networks (HMS), a member of the PTC Partner Network, has announced the availability of a new extension that integrates the Ewon Flexy edge gateways, and associated Ewon Talk2M cloud, with PTC’s ThingWorx Industrial IoT (IIoT) Solutions Platform. The Ewon extension for ThingWorx has been validated by PTC and has achieved ThingWorx Ready status.

The PTC ThingWorx Ready program enables technology companies to validate their products’ interoperability with the ThingWorx platform. Following a product’s ThingWorx Ready designation, that product becomes available on the PTC Marketplace, a digital space where PTC’s partners and customers can access and promote IIoT tools, market-ready solutions and innovative technologies designed to aid solution deployments.

HMS said the Ewon Flexy extension for ThingWorx allows machine OEMs and systems integrators easy and secure data integration from PLCs from all major PLC vendors over the internet to the ThingWorx platform. With this integration, PTC partners and customers can implement state-of-the-art remote machine service solutions customised to their specific markets, according to the company.

“Remote machine connectivity is a core market for HMS Networks,” said Kevin Knake, Vice President and Americas GM at HMS Networks. “We are excited to be able to offer secure, out-of-the-box machine connectivity to ThingWorx via our proven Ewon Flexy and Talk2M solution. With this, we open a clear path for customers to offer market-leading service solutions. ThingWorx services, including Asset Advisor, can be a great value for our machine OEM customer base.”

“We’re pleased HMS Networks is part of the ThingWorx Ready program. HMS’s new Ewon Flexy extension for ThingWorx opens up new possibilities for ThingWorx users to integrate machine data,” said Jonathan Kateman, Senior Vice President, Strategic Alliances at PTC. “Our network of technology partners allows us to offer our customers and partners innovative resources that can add value to their IIoT solutions and help accelerate time to business value.”
