Connect & Unify your Factories
We design and implement the best-in-class Edge to Cloud Systems tailored to your IT/OT integration and Data needs.
Connect any production machine or field device, regardless of brand or generation, into a unified and globally accessible platform. With IoT Edge, manufacturers get secure Edge and/or Cloud access to their production data to optimise workflows, save resources, prevent downtime and improve quality.
You can enable shopfloor data processing, process optimisation, extended machine functionalities, predictive applications, remote services, and new business models, having full control over your data at all times.
An IoT Edge System collects and analyses machine data locally at the Edge, speeding up data analysis on-site. This information can be used to control or improve the production process immediately.
For interaction between different plant locations, customers can choose to store and analyse selected machine status data in external clouds.
Our IoT Edge systems can be linked to higher-level in-plant systems such as ERP, SCM, MES, and external Data Analytics Apps.
At Polestar we design the infrastructure for this to happen with the highest resilience and cybersecurity standards, tailored to every manufacturing need, select the best-in-class hardware vendors, and install the system end-to-end, under Agile methodologies.
Consolidate Operational Data
Break up data silos and consolidate data at scale in the Cloud. Remotely and securely deploy and manage cloud-native workloads such as AI or your own business logic to run directly on your IIoT devices.
Enable Remote Access to reduce SCADA / MES / Automation licensing, optimise cloud spend and enable your devices to react faster to local changes while operating reliably even in extended offline periods.
Thanks to central management and automated tasks, Industrial Edge can be quickly and easily integrated in existing automation and IT environments, granting transparency over the entire production process.
IoT Edge systems are ‘edge-heavy’ and collect/process all production data at source. You can decide whether to keep your production data on-site, or to process it further in Cloud Apps.
Improve Machinery Uptime
Monitor the performance of all your field devices, flagging any not operating at their intended capacity. You can perform waveform failure analysis, receive preventive maintenance alerts, and improve the lifetime of your factory devices.
Capture Overall Equipment Efficiency data of the entire production system in real-time and visualise it on a dashboard for better decision-making. By acquiring values in real-time, you can respond to deviations immediately
Reduce Maintenance Costs
With our machine monitoring systems, you can get insights from performance information related to change history and consumables, helping you with a granular tracking of your factory devices' status.
We help you to discover which are your data, infrastructure and security needs for the implementation of an IoT Edge system within your factory.
After the Consulting and Design phases are completed, we will assign you a Project Manager to proceed with the installation.
Whether you decide to install on-premise-only Data Systems, to go fully Cloud, or both, at Polestar we've got the Engineers.
Depending on your circumstances, we may also need to install cabling, other industrial-grade networking, or cybersecurity systems.
From driving operational efficiency to improving product quality, IoT remote monitoring and Edge computing solutions are helping manufacturers save time and money. As a Microsoft partner, we are using Azure IoT Edge to achieve speedy and cost-effective results for industrial companies.
MindSphere is an open IoT operating system that enable data analytics and connectivity capabilities with eg. OPC, tools for developers to create applications like MindApps and services. At Polestar we create the infrastructure and connectivity for MindSphere, supply the necessary tools, and get you going with MindSphere.
