Litmus Automation Partners With Siemens on IoT Edge-Computing Solutions for Manufacturing

Litmus Automation, an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform provider, has announced that it has joined the MindSphere Partner Program, a Siemens partner program for IIoT solution and technology providers. Litmus's LoopEdge platform, available immediately, collects data from industrial devices and makes it available on MindSphere, a cloud-based open IoT operating system from Siemens.

Litmus Automation's LoopEdge platform provides the ability to connect to any type of PLC or industrial system, with the ability to process, filter and analyze data at the edge with a marketplace of applications, and secure connectivity to the cloud or other enterprise integrations. LoopEdge has the ability to integrate data with MindSphere in real time via a simple interface. In addition to LoopEdge, Litmus Automation also offers its users the Loop solution, which enables data manipulation via built-in analytics and real-time visualization, and for the management of any connected hardware, device, sensor or machine, the company reports.

"Siemens is committed to creating partnerships that help customers digitally transform with Industrial IoT," said Paul Kaeley, Siemens PLM Software's senior VP for global partner ecosystems, in a prepared statement. "Working with Litmus Automation allows us to bring powerful edge computing to the MindSphere ecosystem to improve customers' ability to gather valuable data from the edge and use it to improve manufacturing processes."

MindSphere connects products, plants, systems and machines, enabling businesses to harness the wealth of data generated by the IoT with advanced analytics. Litmus's LoopEdge platform, integrated with MindSphere, is available immediately and targets OEMs and customers in manufacturing, power distribution, and machine building.

"Our partnership with Siemens enables us to help more customers solve their IoT challenges including legacy device integration, device lifecycle management, and advanced edge computing capabilities," said John Younes, Litmus Automation's co-founder and COO, in the prepared statement. "Customers now have a powerful edge computing solution to collect data from all of their industrial devices and make it available on MindSphere in a quick and easy way."
