Edge Analytics - The IoT analytics software from Litmus on the Stratus Edge 110i and the second-gen Stratus ztC Edge 200i exhibits predictive maintenance, condition-based monitoring, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. The partnership shows a simple, secure, autonomous solution for deploying analytics for any MES, SCADA, or IoT software at edge locations in order to overcome network bandwidth, latency, and risk of downtime.
Stratus will also highlight the following to illustrate how pre-validated and tested architectures may reduce engineering time, enable quick deployment, and simplify OT and IT management:
PlantPAx® Solution-in-a-Box from Rockwell Automation - A jointly-tested process control architecture running on ztC Edge to facilitate the deployment of small to medium-sized distributed control systems (DCS) that need less than 5,000 I/Os at edge locations.
Schneider Electric EcoStruxure™ Micro Data Center with Stratus ftServer® Platform - Designed for edge environments, it combines virtualization, fault tolerance, physical protection and smart uninterrupted power.
