Constantly rising energy prices are visibly increasing cost pressure. If you want to save energy and sustainably reduce costs, you need to know exactly which machines, systems and processes are responsible for particularly high consumption. This is the only way to quickly identify potential savings and take targeted measures to secure and increase competitiveness.
With the ipf-Gateway, this is now as easy as can be - without complex conversions and high investment costs.
It has probably never been easier to implement and realize effective energy monitoring and end-to-end energy management in accordance with ISO-50001. The ipf-Gateway is a manufacturer-independent platform, which, together with powerful visualization software, ensures a high level of compatibility with all hardware and IT systems currently on the market.
Thanks to simple connectivity, usability and scalability, with the ipf system solution Industry 4.0 / IoT and IIoT are now no longer buzzwords, but lived practice.
The powerful ipf-Gateways with ARM-processor impress with their high connectivity and enable individual, continuous monitoring through the connection to a controller, the direct connection of up to six digital and four analog sensors or any number of sensors, e.g. via Modbus.
The operating system, which is easy to set up, is already "onboard", as is the web client solution, which processes the measurement data directly, makes it available and visualizes it via the dashboard.

The clear, dynamic dashboard handles the visualization of all measured values on PCs or mobile devices and is based on open source software. The highly flexible visualization solution is therefore individually configurable in a variety of ways and offers a quick overview of the most important key figures and variables with numerous display options.
It offers various options for the individual visualization and graphical representation of data from different sources, e.g. InfluxDB, MySQL, PostgreSQL or Prometheus. Also enlarged representations with detailed views e.g. for a higher resolution of timelines etc. are possible.
Ι Various display options (e.g. tachometer, column, curve diagrams, heatmaps, histograms, and many more)
Ι Easy selection of individual detailed views with higher resolution of individual representations
Ι Fast automatic alarming, e.g. based on rules, conditions or thresholds
Ι Trouble-free data transfer via email or messenger services
Ι Efficient teamwork via platform-independent VNC connection
The ipf-Gateway either enables the monitoring of a single plant or can be implemented as a networked, plant-wide solution. For trouble-free communication and transfer of inventory data, the ipf-Gateway masters all common protocols. ipf electronic offers a whole range of different sensors for decentralized consumption measurements.
The recorded data and measured values can be stored in the ipf gateway's internal memory or transferred to a local server or optionally stored in a cloud via a secure VPN connection.
