Access your machine data anytime, anywhere
Reliable and accurate data logging in the cloud
Configuration on the IXON Cloud
Simply choose which variables you want to log, how often and under which conditions. Start monitoring machines with PLC data acquisition right away.
Secure data transfers from PLC to the cloud
Never lose any valuable data with the seamless integration between IXON Cloud and the IXrouter.
Cloud Data Logging is completely fine-tuned from IXrouter to IXON Cloud, and works seamlessly with almost all modern machine control protocols, including Modbus TCP (e.g. Siemens LOGO!), MELSEC, BACnet, OPC-UA, Siemens S7 and Ethernet IP. So you can collect data from PLCs, HMIs, IPCs, frequency inverters, drives and much more.
IXON makes sure your data is always available, accurate and secured in the cloud, so you can make better, data-driven decisions. Read more about how IXON deals with the security of your data.
Log enormous amounts of PLC data and stream them to a scalable cloud storage. Without worrying about performance or runaway costs.
Building and maintaining your own PaaS platform brings massive risks. Let IXON take care of your platform and profit from continuity, updates and 24/7 monitoring.
How does data logging on IXON Cloud work?
The most robust way to send data to the cloud reliably and securely
Simply configure your data source, the communication protocol and which PLC variables you want to log. Choose how often, based on which condition and how long the data should be stored. The configuration is automatically sent to your local edge device (e.g. IXrouter), which starts recording your data immediately. Your machine data is stored in large, ISO-27001 certified database clusters in Europe.
You can limit the amount of IoT data that's sent to the cloud with edge aggregation. For example, have the IXrouter start logging your machine data locally (every 20-50 ms) and only send pre-defined values to the cloud every minute or hour. That way you can detect a peak by only sending the highest logged value in an hour. Use your gathered data to build condition-based monitoring dashboards or to trigger alarms and notifications. Use the API for advanced analytics on specialized platforms, such as Power BI, Tableau, Matlab, Siemens Mindsphere and many more.
