Trio works together for IIoT deployments
Arrow Electronics has teamed up with Adlink and Microsoft to deliver industrial IoT solutions.
Using Adlink’s Machine Condition Monitoring Edge and hardware and software support from Arrow Electronics and Microsoft Azure IoT Central the trio are aiming to help industrial customers reduce costly, unplanned production shutdowns by enabling machine condition monitoring.
The initiative is the latest step in Arrow’s IoT aggregation program to help industrial companies quickly, securely and cost-effectively deploy and scale projects.
Adlink’s Machine Condition Monitoring includes integrated edge hardware and real-time data-streaming software built for data acquisition and vibration measurement applications to deliver continuous vibration monitoring for rotating machinery and equipment.
Integrated data collection, vibration analysis algorithms, computation and network connection tasking in a single, compact edge device, the MCM-100, enables preventative maintenance of machinery, tooling, plant equipment and automation equipment, with fast and simple set up and configuration, says the company.
To build and deploy the MCM-100, Arrow worked with Microsoft’s Azure IoT Central, an IoT app platform that removes the complexity of operating, managing, securing and scaling an IoT solution. Without the need for deep cloud expertise or worrying about managing infrastructure, Azure IoT Central enables companies to deploy the MCM-100 and achieve real business value faster.
Arrow integrated the hardware and cloud-based software to provide a complete, repeatable solution using the industry-leading platforms from Adlink and Microsoft.
Arrow’s network of IoT providers as well as its internal experts provide both hardware and software to deliver market-ready solutions that fit companies’ individual needs. Arrow offers services, support, customer management and a single point for billing hardware and cloud services.
Arrow Electronics guides innovation for over 200,000 leading technology manufacturers and service providers. Sales in 2018 were $30 billion.
