Can I also measure the consumed power in kWh with the current measurement module?

With the HUB-EN100 current measurement module, you can only measure the current, the power must be calculated.

The successor, the HUB-EN200, which will be launched in 2024, is suitable for power measurement. However, you can also connect conventional measuring devices to the gateway via the common interfaces and query the power.

Can I set alarms for measured values in the gateway?

For each input, so-called "synthetic signals" can be defined in SIINEOS in the I/O management, which trigger a defined action when the threshold value is exceeded or not reached, e.g. the flashing of an LED, the opening of a door or the power-off of a machine. E-mail alarms, on the other hand, cannot yet be set in SIINEOS. However, this can be configured in Grafana.

What is the difference between the HUB-RT100 and the HUB-MRT100?

HUB-MRT100 is a USB stick that stores and plays back the system clock time on the one hand and process data on the other.

HUB-RT100 stores only the system clock time.

Both add-on modules have been specially developed for use in industrial environments and ensure the correct system time especially at locations with frequent disturbances of the electricity supply. HUB-MRT100 additionally has an F-RAM, so that the last written process data can be saved and replayed.

How long does the battery of the HUB-(M)RT100 stick last and when does it need to be changed?

The lifetime guaranteed by the manufacturer is at least 5 years, but can be up to 10 years under optimal environmental conditions.

A change of the battery becomes necessary when the system time with connected HUB-(M)RT100 does not match the local time anymore.

More information can be found in the Instruction Manual at: https://download.inhub.de

Can I connect HUB-(M)RT100 to any gateway with USB port?

The two add-on modules HUB-MRT100 and HUB-RT100 are proprietary developments of in.hub for which no standard drivers are available to use them out-of-the-box.

How to integrate the stick into your individually developed (Linux-based) system software can be found at https://github.com/in-hub/hub-mert100-linux.

In this repository you get the driver source code or the patches for the LinuxKernel.

How do I determine the wear of electric motors with the HUB-EN100?

The HUB-EN100 is an add-on module, i.e. it first requires a master gateway on which SIINEOS is set up. In addition, current sensors must be connected to the HUB-EN100, with which current patterns and values can be measured. You can process the signal values in SIINEOS so that you can determine and visualize the wear parameters via trend changes or threshold values.

Can I connect multiple Energy Add-On modules to one gateway?

Yes, you can connect up to 10 current measurement modules to one in.hub gateway.

: HUB-EN100 devices can only be combined with a HUB-GM100. HUB-EN200 devices can only be combined with a HUB-GM200.

However, since the HUB-EN200 has its own SIINEOS installed, a HUB-GM200 does not necessarily have to be installed as a partner. The best way to find out for which scenarios this can be useful is to talk to us in person.

Can I create thresholds for current monitoring?

In SIINEOS, threshold values can be defined and thus also actions can be triggered, such as a flashing LED or a relay that disconnects the power connection. You can configure these actions in the I/O management under "Signal connections" or "Synthetic signals".

Can the in.hub IoT gateways also be used outside the control cabinet?

The possible uses of the in.hub IoT gateways depend on the environmental conditions. The standardized in.hub IoT gateways have a minimum protection class of IP20, but can also be upgraded to IP67 or even higher with an additional housing.

I have more sensors than the gateway has inputs. Do I need an additional gateway for more inputs?

No, not in principle. The gateway can be easily expanded. For this purpose, you can either connect commercially available input or output modules for more digital or analog signals or also other protocols such as I/O-Link, Profinet and many more. You simply configure the modules via SIINEOS. We also have modules to extend the gateway functionalities in our portfolio. These work 100% plug & play and do not need to be specially set up.

Which sensors can I connect to the IoT gateways?

You can connect almost any sensor or actuator to our IoT gateways. You can find a list of the connections in the respective data sheet or the operating manual of the individual gateways.

What are the first steps with the gateways?

First, you physically connect your sensors or machine controller to the gateway. Then you connect your computer to the gateway (via micro USB) to access the pre-installed SIINEOS operating system. There you need to set up your network(s), activate and configure the interfaces, and possibly activate apps that will further process or store your data (such as cloud access to Telekom's Cloud of Things or the visualization app Grafana).

You can also create your own programs using the SDK in SIINEOS or install your own software via the Docker container or use NodeRed, or you can install the individual solutions from in.hub or its partners.

What can I imagine under an in.hub gateway and what can I use it for?

You have to think of the gateway as a mini-PC with several functions. This mini-PC is a digital collector of information. It is irrelevant whether the information comes from machines, sensors, IT systems or through the input of employees. The information is processed in such a way that it can be interpreted or analyzed. This allows logical operations such as comparisons, comparisons, trends, etc., but also simple "translation" and distribution of the information to systems that require a different machine or high-level language (such as OPC UA, Modbus or Ethernet TCP/IP).

Furthermore, the data can be easily visualized on the gateway to display interactive graphical user interfaces (dashboards). These can then be accessed from any device on the network. Likewise, a gateway can of course transmit data to company networks or cloud systems.

What is a backplane bus?

This is a rear hardware interface on our devices to connect devices mounted side by side with a connector. This process is described in detail in the operating instructions.

Is there customer support in case questions or problems arise?

Yes, customer service can be reached at service@inhub.de.

Are there already ready-made interfaces to SAP?

No, there is currently no standard interface to SAP. A connection (also bidirectional) to SAP is customer-specific.

We are a software manufacturer for MES systems and often need machine signals for our evaluation at our customers. Are the in.hub products suitable for this?

Yes, we already have many customers from the software industry. Our products are designed so that any machine can be monitored. With our Software Development Kit (SDK), it is also possible to independently create connectors or apps to complement your own software.

I am an equipment manufacturer and would like to offer my equipment as Equipment-as-a-Service (EaaS) in the future. Does in.hub also offer special options so that I can monitor and control my machine remotely?

Yes, this is a frequently used application with our products. The in.hub technology makes it possible to access all connected devices remotely if the corresponding function has been activated beforehand. We work here either with VPN or with VNC connections. This can be done either from the on-site network or via the public data network (e.g. Telekom 4G).

I would like to display the recorded data transparently for my employees in production so that we can react more quickly to events together. What is the easiest way to do this?

If you already know what information and displays you want, we can easily display them in a live dashboard. Using a monitor that is connected to your company network, this dashboard can then be displayed anywhere. Typically at the workstation, in hallways or office areas. The dashboards can also be designed interactively.

Can I label and resell the products with my own brand logo?

Yes, we also offer our products as white-label, so that your own branding is possible. Contact us and we will explain the process to you.

Can I also get information on the products and quantities produced during machine monitoring?

Yes, this is very possible. We can read in the data from the ERP or MES system or also from working papers.

I need more interfaces and a different design. Is it possible to adapt the in.hub products specifically to my wishes?

Yes, this is possible. Just contact us with your requirements. We also customize our products in "form, fit & function".

I would like to integrate a machine data collection (MDE) into my ERP system. Is this possible with the in.hub products?

Yes, that is very possible. We have already connected many condition monitoring systems or even just the direct machine data to ERP or MES systems. In doing so, we work closely with many suppliers. Our SIINEOS operating system was developed, among other things, so that interfaces to IT systems can be designed easily and quickly.

Is it possible to buy the in.hub devices individually and program them yourself or does the implementation have to be done via in.hub?

Yes, all in.hub products are designed so that really anyone can work with them independently. Many customers create their own solution with our modules. We also offer training and workshops to make it even faster to use our products.

I would like to become a sales partner/dealer for in.hub products. What do I have to consider?

We offer special conditions for resellers, integration and technology partners. Just contact us and we will explain the procedure to you.

I would like to have individual machines in my production evaluated and monitored. How long does it take on average for such monitoring to be operational?

This usually happens very quickly, within 4 to 6 weeks. In exceptional cases, however, it can also take 2 to 3 months. This depends on the individual companies and whether you already know exactly what you need, whether third parties may be involved in the implementation or whether delivery times must be met for external products.

I want to monitor my production, but I don't know the ways to do it quickly and easily. Does in.hub also offer workshops for this?

Yes, we would be happy to work with you to develop a digitization strategy that is right for your company. For this purpose, we offer workshops to evaluate at the beginning, completely independently of our products, which steps and products are necessary. After that, you are free to decide whether you want to continue on this path with us. Afterwards, we will be happy to support you from implementation to roll-out and training, so that you are fully supported.
