With the certified models of the IRF2000 series, ADS-TEC offers an optimum IT infrastructure for Industry 4.0 applications, such as remote service, device management and predictive maintenance in the maritime industry. ADS-TEC is one of the few companies in the world to offer industrial firewalls with a DNV GL certificate. The new series for maritime use is not only certified for use on ships but has also been successfully tested in accordance with IEC 60945. This makes it suitable for the sensitive applications on the bridge.
Two variants are now available based on the IRF2220 (with LTE) and the IRF2200 (without LTE). Communication can therefore take place in close proximity to shore via the cheaper mobile radio network, as well as with the ship’s GPS.
In conjunction with other IoT modules such as the Cloud-based connectivity platform Big-LinX® developed by ADS-TEC and the remote operating software X-Remote®, new options are being provided for the shipping industry, port facilities, shipyards, shipping companies and all shipping industry suppliers. In this way, an efficient and convenient Industry 4.0 IT structure for applications such as remote service, device management and predictive maintenance can be established on all of the world's seas.
The IRF2000 series is already used by numerous industrial customers and has proven itself in different applications. The ADS-TEC solution has been used successfully by a major supplier of ship electrical and electronic systems for many years, making global service possible on an continuously increasing number of ships.
As well as the technological solution, ADS-TEC also has many years of experience in the de-sign and implementation of Industry 4.0 solutions. An experienced support team provides as-sistance during the roll-out and with maintenance during operation.
