Get on the fast track to
smart manufacturing

For more than a decade, the world has been talking about the next industrial revolution – but industry representatives feel anything but revolutionary: Industrial IoT does not get beyond the PoC phase, your data is still slumbering in silos, topics like predictive maintenance remain mostly buzzwords without concrete implementation.

The reasons for this are understandable: Decision-makers want modernization, but you can’t ask them to throw their economic sense overboard. On existing shopfloors, there are often numerous generations of machines in operation at the same time.

Machines lack state-of-the-art sensor technology, retrofit solutions are often unsatisfactory and neglect the data component. Even in greenfield projects, missing APIs and incompatible protocols continue to hamper the smart use of data.

But is that why the future must come bit by bit? Not at all! In fact, there is a faster way to smart manufacturing!
Install anywhere

No matter if you use local servers, your PC, a Raspberry Pi or the cloud: XENTARA follows your data streams and your infrastructure. There´s no need for additional expensive hardware.

Connect anything

XENTARA integrates all common protocols, fieldbuses and PLCs. This makes industrial automation brownfield-compatible and avoids expensive retrofitting investments.

“One-Stop-Shop”

XENTARA can be enhanced in every imaginable direction through skills and add-ons from our skill store – for example, by adding new protocols or machine learning scenarios.

Be the first at the pole!

XENTARA is an integrated software-based platform that brings together all dimensions of smart production. With XENTARA you unlock the true potential of your machine data. These new opportunities enable manufacturing companies
to develop new business models from their data and continuously optimize their value chain.

The reward: greater efficiency and thus more competitiveness. 

Pick your entry point!

There is no single path to smart production. Depending on their individual requirements or production environment, manufacurers seek different approaches and use cases to use their data. XENTARA lays the foundation for realizing scenarios that generate a particularly high benefit and contribute to the big picture – the transformation of your industry.

More Features of the Plattform

XENTARA is an integrated software-based platform that brings together all dimensions of smart production.
Use all the possibilities of smart manufacturing and “liquify” the data of the entire shopfloor.

CUSTOM AI

Use AI and machine learning wherever your data is processed. At the edge, on your own server or in the cloud. This enables shop floor operators to achieve better value for less investment.

OPEN INTERFACE

XENTARA connects to a wide-range of fieldbuses and protocols. Any existing ERP, MES, CAQ or BI solution can be integrated.

REALLY REAL-TIME:

Your data is not available in an hour or the next day but: immediately and at the same moment. This is how you create the prerequisite for immediate and further usage scenarios from your valuable data.

SKILL STORE

XENTARA can be enhanced in every imaginable direction through skills and add-ons from our skill store – for example, by adding new protocols or machine learning scenarios. This way we meet every current and future use case
