Voith launches new cloud-based IIoT platform

Published by
World Cement,

Voith Turbo has launched its Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform, Voith OnCumulus, allowing Voith customers to leverage date from all equipment across an enterprise to optimise reliability, achieve performance targets, and reduce costs.

OnCumulus serves as a hub, receiving data from a variety of sources, including plants, production lines, machines, and devices.

“Customers benefit from one central platform for their date, from which they can launch their digitalisation initiatives,” said Voith in a press release. “The OnCumulus.Platform is based on open-source and highly standardised technologies. It provides fast, reliable and secure access to data from local machines and systems in the cloud as well as fast provisioning for value creation. The platform is scalable, flexible and extensible at any time.”

Customers’ data security is ensured by OnCumulus’ compliance with industry standards and best practices. OnCumulus users stay in control of their date, defining the data access, while Voith supports local control of data by providing data centres in every region.

Beside the IIoT platform, the OnCumulus.Suite offering provides the first possibilities to benefit from data intelligence.

“By pre-structuring the available data using visualisation and analytical functionalities, customers benefit from the first basic, easy-to-use tools, namely: Information Flow, Monitoring and Alarming Tool as well as Analysis,” Voith said. “Therewith, customers can access their data in near real-time and take the first step for optimising their operating process by using persona-based dashboards.”

Voith’s existing OnEfficiency and OnCare have also been launched as cloud-based OnCumulus applications. OnEfficiency supports customers in improving their process efficiency; OnCare focuses on the availability of assets.

“Using the applications on the same cloud-based technical platform, customers benefit from bridging information and data views cross-site and cross-app and therewith leverage untapped correlation possibilities for more advanced insights and transparency,” concluded Voith. “External information sources, like raw material prices, weather data, or connections to webshops or warehouses, can be easily integrated and correlated with existing operational data”.
