Waylay’s Digital Twin Revolutionizes Provisioning in Industrial IoT

Waylay’s Zero-Code Provisioning Portal Streamlines Retro-Fitting Installation Procedures

30 November 2020, Ghent, BELGIUM – IoT automation and analytics software company Waylay today announced its industry first zero-code provisioning portal based on digital twins of equipment for time efficient retro-fitting of legacy assets.

In an ideal world, all equipment would be connected. In reality, millions of legacy machines are locked out of Industry 4.0 solutions because of the prohibitive cost of retro-fitting. Hence accessorizing equipment with connected sensors is required to unleash the full potential of collected IoT data, to optimize performance with preventive and predictive maintenance and to create new outcome-based service models. Waylay provides the industry first zero-code provisioning portal to address this global problem, with digital twin creation without any human intervention.

When retro-fitting equipment, field technicians should install the sensors, pair them, add machine-specific settings and register customer specific requirements, such as threshold settings, notifications, contact data, alarm flows, etc. The often under-highlighted problems of retro-fitting are on-site complexities that maintenance crews discover during installation – zero touch activation is still a fantasy. A traditional spreadsheet based installation approach often suffers from incomplete provisioning data and manual editing errors and requires in-depth training for the field crew, slowing down roll-out plans. Watch the provisioning portal video here.

Zero-code provisioning portal automatically initiates Digital Twins

The Waylay zero-code provisioning portal guarantees a quick, flexible and complete installation process. Its creation is based on resource configuration settings that auto-populate the required input fields, no programming is required. It drastically simplifies the provisioning process whilst enforcing that all mandatory information is provided before the installation process can be completed. Specific settings such as information that associates sensors to physical equipment can be entered from any end user device, smartphone or tablet. The digital twin – the software equivalent of equipment with its sensor data and analytics – will be initialized automatically and will align with the pre-configured automation rules in the Waylay automation platform for monitoring and optimizing the newly connected asset. Watch the provisioning portal image here.

“Waylay takes the organizational nightmare out of the time consuming retro-fitting
process to connect legacy equipment,” said Piet Vandaele, CEO of Waylay. “Our
zero-code provisioning portal transforms installation processes. Pairing and 2 completion of settings becomes a time efficient exercise and assets can finally get access to Industry 4.0 incentives.”

Common Design Pitfalls When Designing With Hall 2D Sensors And How To Avoid Them

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

This article discusses three widespread application issues in industrial and automotive end equipment – rotary encoding, in-plane magnetic sensing, and safety-critical – that can be solved more efficiently using devices with new features and higher performance. We will discuss in which end products these applications can be found and also provide a comparison with our traditional digital Hall-effect sensors showing how the new releases complement our existing portfolio.

Hello FPGA

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

Getting started on an FPGA-based embedded vision project can be tricky. Locating all the components you need, getting them to talk to each other, and just getting your system to the video equivalent of “Hello World” is a pretty daunting task. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Avery Williams of Microchip Technology about the Hello FPGA kit - a low-cost, low-touch embedded vision kit for engineers new to FPGAs.
