On the basis of our SOMA platform, a modular and scalable edge device was developed as a prototype for monitoring bearing and machine components using wireless sensors for a well-known Japanese bearing manufacturer. Based on the customer requirements, the state of the art was determined and a functional specification created. The hardware was selected on the basis of the specification requirements. The chosen option was a Beckhoff® IPC C6030 (edge device) and a gateway from Pepperl+Fuchs to set up a secure wireless network for connecting wireless sensors, such as vibration sensors.
