The Platform for Grid Automation

The communications and control systems for electric distribution grid are facing increasing stress due to fundamental changes in grid technologies. Utilities are transitioning from a collection of disparate legacy communication systems to IP-based Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to be deployed in large scale.

Machfu simplifies this transition by easily connecting data at the edge to infrastructure in the cloud. Machfu grew from a simple idea that developing and maintaining IIoT applications and infrastructure should be simple so that the focus is on solving the business problem.
