Machfu’s Reactor application combined with its IIoT Service lowers the digital transformation barriers for industrial enterprises
ROCKVILLE, MD (September 14, 2020) – Machfu, a leader in industrial internet of things solutions, has launched MACHREACTOR™, an integrated application on Machfu’s unique low-power industrial IoT gateway to simplify connections with industrial controllers and translate data between legacy devices and cloud systems. Industrial enterprises can now monitor devices and systems that use different communication protocols to communicate easily without requiring users to write any software code.
“Different types of controllers are utilized in the field to monitor assets at the edge. Historically, it has been a hard problem to solve with legacy controllers using different communication protocols in a facility,” said Tim Winter, CTO of Machfu. “The versatile MACHREACTOR engine integrates, collects, and aggregates data from these devices to enable remote monitoring in a single pane of glass or by SCADA backend systems.”
MACHREACTOR’s flexibility and simplicity allow customers to interface field devices such as PLCs, controllers, or meters with their backend systems or the Machfu Cloud service. At the core of MACHREACTOR is an easy-to-use protocol translation engine that lets users map their controllers and devices quickly either locally or remotely from the cloud management system. In combination with the turnkey Machfu IIoT Service, it allows oil and gas companies to take charge of upstream and midstream operations and boost automation by offloading processing requirements and applying edge computing. Utilities gain further efficiencies from line sensors in distribution automation, managed distributed energy resources, and field-level automation towards a secure, reliable, resilient, and digital grid.
“MACHREACTOR readily interfaces with different types of rod pump controllers, sensors, and meters in the field to measure values such as Pressure, Temperature, Tank Level, and Flow, enabling holistic view of field operations to assist with swift detection of anomalies and facilitate rapid remediation in the field,” said John Geiger, Vice President of Business Development, Machfu. “Users can quickly map a field controller or device using MACHREACTOR through a simple UI interface on the gateway or remotely via cloud management, resulting in reduced deployment costs.”
MACHREACTOR is built on proven technology that collects, processes, and delivers reliable and accurate data from industrial systems and reduces the need for service or maintenance downtime. It allows for simultaneous communication between multiple devices and cloud-based systems and has a built-in protocol translation engine.
