IoT Device Management: Know, in detail, what is happing in your plant

octoplant IoT Device Management

Keep track of all devices and drivers

octoplant integrates all common production and IIoT devices across manufacturers and manages the configuration data in a standardized manner on a central data management platform. This solution enables transparent management of complex information and provides a clear breakdown of who made each change, why and when.

While other solutions only cover specific machines or just certain parts of a plant, octoplant offers a 360-degree view and supports a wide range of bus systems, standards, and manufacturers. The purpose of this centralized approach, which covers everything from sensors and field devices to SCADA and PLCs to HMI devices and robotics, is to provide a comprehensive view for everyone in the plant from the plant manager or engineer to maintenance and IT and OT security managers.

What our customers say

We now have a centralised data storage location, a clear structure for user rights, transparency about who changed what, where when and why, source code control and the ability to compare versions, which helps with standardisation. It is now easy to deal with changes: we Check-out the file, set the lock state, make changes, and check it back in. This is all fully documented and can be traced at any time, which also facilitates standardisation and contributes further to our development as a company.
