i4connected - the Platform for your IIoT Applications.

i4connected, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform from WEBfactory, connects your plants, machines, systems and buildings with the digital world. Thanks to predefined software packages, you can implement applications such as condition monitoring, SCADA, predictive maintenance, and energy management in the shortest possible time.

Digitize and Manage Machines, Plants, Systems, and Buildings. Worldwide. Economically.

With the IIoT platform i4connected you can connect machines, plants, systems and buildings quickly and easily to the digital world. The modular and scalable IIoT platform grows with your requirements. So the start into the digital world is at the push of a button. Simply log on and immediately keep an eye on systems, machines, plants and buildings via the web as well as record and evaluate data.

Monitor machines and plants at any time, by any person in charge and everywhere with mobile devices thanks to meaningful key performance indicators. control. manage. This is very easy with our web-based solutions.

Developers and system integrators can save a lot of time with HTML5 based visualization solutions, if they want to implement the most different requirements for different customers: Because no programming skills are required. BYOD is also so easy to implement.

With i4connected you can

  • Monitor your production facilities online and calculate all relevant key performance indicators (OEE, availability, performance, quality).
  • Cover energy management for all your production sites, even for complex organizational and cost centre structures.
  • Operate, control and monitor your decentrally distributed machines and plants.
  • Centrally record and evaluate your distributed measuring stations.

i4connected offers modules for condition monitoring, SCADA, predictive maintenance and energy management. These modules can be combined into individual Smart Services as required.

i4connected is connected online to PLC controls, measuring systems and sensors and updates all KPIs almost in real-time. This gives you a quick overview at all times.

i4connected combines business data from your back-end systems, such as ERP systems, MES or CMMS, with real-time data from the process and stored business rules. You benefit from an optimally integrated solution.

Each user can easily put together his personal user interface and complete his tasks in the shortest possible time. Thus, i4connected makes daily work easier for your employees.

Thanks to a modern architecture, defined and documented interfaces, and a modular concept, i4connected allows easy integration of extensions. This allows you to react flexibly to changes at any time.

i4connected can be operated both OnPremise in a virtual environment and in a private or public cloud. For maximum performance, scalability, and availability, processes can be distributed across different nodes and clusters.
