Information and data lie at the heart of any intelligent solution concerning the modern factory floor.

The AMPHION S14 is ei3’s robust and powerful edge device that:

  • Connects to your machine’s PLCs through a variety of modern and legacy fieldbus protocols to collect all configured machine and process data
  • Securely transmits this data to the ei3 or third-party cloud for processing and analysis.
  • Exceeds the most demanding security requirements.
  • Is easy to install and configure, and seamlessly fits into an DIN-rail compatible machine cabinet
  • Has edge computing capabilities for on-site analytics and high-frequency data aggregation.
  • Provides ample storage of off-line data aggregation during network outages.
  • Is highly scalable, depending on whether you need the AMPHION on single machines/small sites or hundreds of machines across several plants.

The AMPHION is the access key for your machine to the world of ei3’s suite of IIoT solutions that provides unique insights and secure remote access for machine builders and operators, to service technicians and managers.

The AMPHION provides unrivaled security, control, and granular access, with Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)

The Industrial Internet of Things merges the worlds of IT and OT. The IT department regulates the flow and storage of information, focussing on security and privacy. The operating teams (OT)  deal with the network of interconnected devices on the factory floor, and wish to enable remote access to facilitate troubleshooting and keep machines running. Quite naturally, their requirements often collidate when it comes to rolling out an IoT solution. 

database

THE IT-TEAM:

Controls a “green” Amphion that aggregates all data from a facility or plant, and maintains a single, encrypted and secured link to the outside data center.

humidity

THE OT-TEAM:

Controls “red” Amphions that enforce user authentication and access rights to individual machine functions. 

Without the AMPHION, your IIoT vision might suffer in a few ways, like:

  • IT and OT teams remain locked with conflicting security and access requirements. 
  • On-site Vulnerabilities: Machines might be vulnerable to infiltration due to limited protection against unauthorized remote or on-site access.
  • Cybersecurity Concerns: Sensitive machine-based, operational, client-based or other company information can be compromised without a secure method for data-sharing.

Choose your AMPHION

Users can opt for the AMPHION that best suits their requirements.

Most sites combine different types of AMPHION for maximum efficacy. 

GREEN BOX

Green Box

Securely encrypts and consolidates all data generated on your site before it is transmitted to the ei3 data center via the internet. Works with up to 128 red boxes to provide highly scalable, plant-wide IIoT installations. Tailored for large-scale requirements.

RED BOX

Red box

Isolates each machine from other machines and everything else on your network. Interrogates your machines’ controllers for status and data and can execute edge based filtering and analytics. Data is relayed to the green box while encrypted, or in plain text on your shop network, allowing you to monitor all data that is collected.

BLACK BOX

Black Box

Acts as a singular gateway between one machine network and the ei3 data center. Suitable for small installations, such as those for a single  individual machine, for pilots, and demos

Connecting the Shop Floor to SERVICE

Analyze

STEP 1. ANALYZE

Organizations need to recognize their readiness to implement SERVICE. You can determine this by performing an initial audit, examining all potential users, asset inventory, current technologies, target devices, and practices.

Implement

STEP 2. IMPLEMENT

ei3’s SERVICE is highly secure and easy to implement and addresses the requirements of the end-user’s IT and OT departments. Users get centralized control over all their devices, platforms, and more from the get-go while receiving data for analysis in easy-to-understand formats on their dashboard. 

Improve

STEP 3. improve

Technicians solve 80% of machine-related problems remotely which in turn helps achieve the best allocation of their resources and time. End users benefit from increased productivity and make prudent managerial decisions while paving the way for advanced applications like predictive maintenance programs.
