WORKERBASE provides a Smartwatch connected to an Industrial IoT platform which integrates with your existing business applications. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) forms a subset of IoT and focuses on special industrial requirements. IIoT differs from IoT in many ways due to the specific requirements of the industrial world.
WORKERBASE provides an IIoT smartwatch specifically made for the industrial requirements. The WORKERBASE App Builder is a tool to create apps for IIoT without programming. The preconfigured WORKERBASE manufacturing and logistics apps help you to kickstart your IIoT activities. You can adapt all preconfigured apps to your needs.
If you want to display machine alarms on the smartwatch and you already have an IOT gateway setup, the integration is very straightforward. The only thing you have do in the WORKERBASE system is to create a so called “custom event” using the webhook functionality. Next, you setup your IOT gateway to send data to this webhook endpoint in JSON format. Once this is configured, you will be able to consume the data sent from the IoT gateway on your smartwatch. If you are not using an IOT gateway, you can setup a direct connection using protocols like MQTT, OPC-UA, Siemens S7, Rockwell, OpenPLC or Modbus. We have prepared a short tutorial with a step-by-step explanation of how to bring machine alarms to the smartwatch by using an IoT Gateway.
The WORKERBASE smartwatch has been built to support the industrial internet of things. The entire system is built on a service oriented architecture and implements modern IoT technologies such as MQTT. IoT rapid protoyping platforms such as NodeRed can be integrated.
The smartwatch connects to the WORKERBASE industrial internet of things platform through Wifi.
The IIoT platform is a cloud-based system built with scalability and resilience in mind. Integration of existing line-of-business applications such as SAP ECC 6.0 or MES application is possible through standard web interfaces such as REST API or SOAP webservcies.
