Litmus Automation, Parker Hannifin Sign IoT Software Licensing Agreement

Litmus Automation, a provider of intelligent edge-computing systems, has announced a licensing agreement with the Quick Coupling Division of Parker Hannifin, a supplier of motion and control technologies. Under the terms of the agreement, Parker will offer its customers a Parker-branded version of Litmus' LoopEdge software, known as Voice of the Machine Edge, as part of its IoT product catalog.

Parker will bundle the software with its Industrial IoT gateway and SensoNODE Gold wireless sensors, in order to provide a system to connect to its Voice of the Machine Cloud Industrial Condition Monitoring solution. The technology is suitable for monitoring the conditions of manufacturing equipment and processes, the firm reports, to enable predictive maintenance and avoid equipment downtime. The Voice of the Machine Edge software enables customers to connect to their wireless SensoNODE Gold sensors, as well as to existing legacy programmable logic controllers and machines used on factory floors.

"Combining Litmus Automation's award winning IoT Edge technology with our existing IoT solutions will provide us with a full end-to-end product offering for IoT, including sensors, hardware, Edge and Cloud software," said David Shannon, the business unit manager of Parker's Quick Coupling Division in a prepared statement. "Our IoT solution will allow customers to process, filter and analyze data at the Edge before pushing it to the Cloud."

"Our experience working with large manufacturers has demonstrated that they need a unified edge-to-cloud solution, and we are pleased to partner with Parker Hannifin to provide that solution through another channel in the market," added Vatsal Shah, Litmus Automation's co-founder and CEO, in the prepared statement. "The direction of their IoT product line aligns with ours, to help customers reduce downtime and improve efficiency with Edge Computing solutions."
