The connection to new machines occurs via standard interfaces such as OPC-UA or fieldbus systems. By reading machine conditions and through sensors older machinery can also be integrated into the Clouver platform through individually customizable Clouver-gateways.

Data is saved to Clouver edge on premise for further data processing within your company. Machine data of all production lines can be processed further in very short production cycles.

Clouver in the cloud serves to integrate several production sites. Only those data released by your company in Clouver edge, is then sent to the cloud. A wider basis of data allows for improved analysis, for instance in machine-learning.
