Axiomtek, a leading design and manufacturing company of innovative, high performance and reliable PC-based industrial computer products, is proud to announce its proprietary Agent MaaS Suite (AMS), a comprehensive, all-in-one intelligent device management software equipped with data visualization and cloud-connectivity functionalities. It was designed to offer a complete Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solution when combined with compatible hardware. Axiomtek’s AMS allows users to efficiently manage various tasks, such as protocol communication; data collection and processing; device setting and monitoring; and event detection and notification. It is an easy-to-use development software tool that captures data and allows users to customize their data acquisition and flow, allowing them to reduce their development time and efforts for their IIoT projects.
The AMS contains two packages: system management – AXView 3.0, and remote management – MaaS (Management as a Service). In addition to providing basic device management and data management, the AXView 3.0 can provide hardware platform and operating system information, and monitor hardware statuses such as temperature, voltage, fan speed and I/O ports. For data management, the AXView 3.0 features several protocols and one development software tool for data processing and data flow. The MaaS is designed to manage multiple hardware devices with AXView 3.0 installed and integrate all machine information into the central data hub for an administrator’s full control. The intelligent AMS software is supported by most Axiomtek hardware platform models and can remotely monitor hardware conditions, I/O interface statuses and system usages. In the event that unusual coditions occur, it can also trigger alerts.
For example, Axiomtek’s AMS software can be used for device monitoring and data acquisition in factory automation. The AMS can help operators track, analyze and report Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) measurements in real time from all the connected equipment. When the AMS software is integrated with smart technology in facilities, the environmental data collected from sensors such as temperature, relative humidity, sunlight, carbon dioxide and wind speed can be monitored to enable building staff to optimize building operation. It can collect key data for further analyses. The software can also automatically turn on/off the air conditioner, lighting, humidifier and dehumidifier or issue alerts when unusual conditions occur.
"In the past, industrial PC manufacturers only provide BSP, SDK or utility to access hardware platforms, and users are left to handle software integration by themselves. In response, Axiomtek has developed the user-friendly AMS, which supports three common protocols used in industrial applications: Modbus TCP/RTU, OPC UA and LoRaWAN. It includes an easy-to-use visual programming tool, Node-RED, for software development," said Mark Lu, a product manager of the IoT Solutions Division at Axiomtek. "With AMS, users can quickly and easily operate the device management with zero programming required, and all the information and status reports of hardware platform can be easily processed in Node-RED with drag-and-drop, select and configure."
