LoopEdge is designed to work on any Windows or Linux-based gateway with a web browser-based UI. LoopEdge allows you to run various applications on top of your data at the edge or securely send it to the cloud for seamless enterprise integration.
LoopEdge provides several key functionalities that are necessary for any IIoT deployment.
With a proper management UI, LoopEdge enables the distribution of drivers at the gateway level to collect data from almost all legacy industrial protocols.
LoopEdge lets you run applications locally at the edge for quick and effective processing, so you don't bombard your cloud infrastructure with unnecessary data.
Legacy device support based on industrial drivers.
Security monitoring for access and threat detection.
Datahub for aggregating device data and storing locally.
Application deployment from public or private marketplace.
Process, analyze and filter data with a codeless, flow based configuration UI.
Native cloud connectivity to Loop and other 3rd party platforms.
Have several working parts?
We support several gateways.
LoopEdge supports nearly all IIoT enabled gateway devices.
LoopEdge has many components to meet your IIoT needs.
Complete device connectivity with quick driver deployment and a drag and drop interface. All customizable using C++ and Erlang as a backend. Collect data from LoopFlow Single Point Data Access framework. Including support for Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, Ethernet/IP, EtherCat, Profibus, Profinet, Enchelon, Ethernet with HTTP, BacNet/IP, OPCUA, and many more! Process, filter and analyze data with the ability to write application logic using JS & Python, including functions, as well as rules and alerts for event processing. Sync flows to the cloud and create new versions of the code to push to devices quickly.
Have immediate access to a marketplace of databases, CEP tools and data analytics applications, populated by Litmus Automation and partners. In addition, LoopEdge allows private applications to be created, hosted and monetized by VARs, Distributors, OEMs or SIs. Applications are based on container technology, such as Linux LXC / Docker based application deployments, which can also be managed at the cloud level.
DataHub includes Message Broker, a native and highly scalable broker to publish or subscribe data to various topics with high security and isolation for multiple applications consuming the same data. DataHub Database lets LoopEdge run offline, but can push all offline data to cloud once an internet connection is established. DataHub’s Native Cloud Connection collects data from the local message broker and local database to push to cloud with MQTT, REST or AMQP configurations.
With LoopEdge, you can identify and report security issues, permitted and non-permitted data transmission to the external IPs, as well as SSL and non-SSL sessions. In addition, you can instantly find anomalies in the access, as well as identify external hacking. LoopEdge also provides a bandwidth analysis breakdown, as well as rule-based communication blocking.
In just a few clicks, DeviceHub lets IT teams quickly and easily connect industrial drivers (PLC, DCS, CNC, Historians, etc.) and systems to start collecting data with the help of native security layers for device and data isolation. In addition, command and control protection allows write protection to the industrial systems unless explicitly specified and includes Worker Mode, where tens of thousands of industrial tags can be polled at high frequency with data available as a PubSub subscription. Output of DeviceHub is always standardized in JSON and IPSO-JSON formats.
Made to work together
LoopEdge works seamlessly with the Loop platform. In fact, most Loop add-ons can be run at the edge for powerful processing and filtering so only the necessary processed data is sent to the cloud.
