German industrial conglomerate Siemens has just launched a contest titled “Best Applications of SIMATIC IOT2050” to provide an opportunity for automation engineers and students in Vietnam to demonstrate their talent, creativity, and out-of-the-box thinking by coming up with innovative solutions for the automation industry with support from Siemens IOT gateway.

SIMATIC IOT2050 is designed for industrial IT solutions for the acquisition, processing, and transfer of data directly in the production environment. It can be used for connecting the production process to a cloud-based analysis of machine and production data.

The gateway can also be retrofitted in already existing plants, where it then harmonises communication between different data sources, analyses the data, and passes it on for evaluation to a local or cloud-based system.

SIMATIC IOT2050 is typically used for preventive machine maintenance and linking production to the ERP level in order to minimise expensive production downtimes.
