Do you do customized IoT solutions with Azure or AWS tools?

No. We have our own toolkit NouxCloud™. If you have some special need we develop it to NouxCloud™. It is also possible to implement external solutions by using interfaces etc. NouxCloud™ is a very open toolkit in that sense.

What automation data sources can I use?

If you are using PLCs, most common communication protocols are supported, like S7, OPC-UA, Modbus, EtherNet/IP, TwinCAT ADS etc… Robots and machines with HTTP interfaces are supported. More can be added as requested but we have to handle them case by case. And if you are not using PLCs that can be solved by using adapters. But there needs to be a data source using communication protocols.

I already have my visualization covered. Can I use your services only to get the data?
Yes. You can use only edge application and our database solution to get the data. Or vice versa, you can take only the cloud solution for visualization. But we heavily recommend that if you only take some part of the service then take the edge.
My company has a lot of existing Microsoft infrastructure. Can NouxCloud be integrated with Azure?
Not only integrated, but it can also be fully hosted in Azure if requested. Basically, any server in the cloud or even locally is feasible. As long as it can run Docker.
Do you sell edge devices or any kind of hardware?
No. We are a software company and do not sell hardware. We provide you freedom to select and use any edge device you want. As long as it can run Docker.
I’m doing business globally and I need to use different hardware and automation platforms depending on the location. Is this a problem?
No. Our edge application can get data from most hardware and automation platforms. And most importantly, you can get the data in harmonized format to have unified views from all of your machines regardless of the hardware.
Do you provide VPN?
Our data transfer is decrypted and transferred using MQTTS/HTTPS. Additionally NouxCloud has integrated VPN that can be used to further secure data transfer but also to get remote connection to PLC.
I’m not sure what communication protocols my machines are using. Can I still use your services?

Understanding your machine’s automation platform and its communication protocol is essential to use NouxCloud. Noux Node with its partners can provide support if needed.

What are the most common business models that other machine builders have based on IoT and NouxCloud?

Depends on the company, its line of business and type of machines. There are some common use cases on a general level but each company needs to plan its own business model. According to our experience the fastest way to achieve a working business model is to start collecting data, release something and then focus on continuous improvement.

I’m not a machine builder but I have a facility full of machines. Can I get data from them by using your services?

We are focusing on machine builders because their automation systems are full of useful data. And most importantly, they have access (and the understanding) to their automation systems. Unless you have the access, you don’t have data. If you do have the access then we are a match. Of course, it is possible to install additional sensors and use that data in NouxCloud™.

How many machine learning algorithms do you have?
We ourselves don’t have algorithms but we support all you want to use. It’s not about the amount of algorithms, it’s about finding and training the most suitable for you. When you have the right one you can use it externally by calling it or internally by implementing it to NouxCloud™.

No dependencies,
no limitations

Collect data from any automation platform, run it on any cloud platform, private server o even locally inside the factory.
