IoTcollector / Blackbox

The flexible and scalable system for recording -> documentation -> analysis -> optimization

You want ...

  • monitoring of process and energy data in plants - worldwide
  • bring remote stations to the network
  • increase the availability of your facility
  • a cost reduction of service operations
  • make their plant fit for Industry 4.0
  • tapping off measured data and wirelessly networking
  • shortening of commissioning times due to seamless data recording
  • an analysis of the plant values for error early detection
  • send alarm messages via SMS or email
  • an optimization of plant operation
  • in case of warranty a secure database instead of guesses only

Plant is running - everything under control - processes ok - really?

Modern industrial plants - as customer-specific individual plants or small series - are today equipped throughout with automation systems, PLCs, etc. These systems provide their service - around the clock - usually without major problems.

Nevertheless, many questions remain unanswered and possible potentials unused:

  • Is the regulation already working optimally - which improvements are possible?
  • Can I document the process data to the customer or operator?
  • Which faults have occurred? When were which parameters changed?
  • What is the long-term behavior of important process parameters?


Based on years of experience, PSG offers an elegant solution for this ...

the IoTcollector

the Blackbox


  • Simple connection to system PLC (manufacturer independent) without internal intervention or programming
  • Use of existing network infrastructure (LAN, WLAN) or flexible connection via GSM / GPRS
  • Data exchanged between sensors and higher levels
  • Protection of data against unauthorized access
  • Data access via standard Internet browser or Scalarvis client software
  • Multiple expansion options: digital and analog remote inputs, as well as various bus systems
  • compact: small dimensions, DIN rail mounting, low power consumption
  • Scalable system: small entry, large expandability, either a stand-alone system or a multi-client server structure
  • automatic intermediate buffering of the data in the event of a connection failure to the server
  • Transfer machine data to common cloud systems

Scalable communication:

  • Integrated GSM / LTE modem or WLAN for wireless networking of sensor data
  • 2 Ethernet ports including firewall for separation of process and management level I / O peripherals for sensors / actuators
  • OPC UA for open communication with other systems
  • S7 compatible communication
  • Modbus TCP / RTU communication
  • Serial communication RS232 / RS485
  • Integrated SCALARVIS WebClient

Typical applications:

  • Energy: collection, archiving and management of energy data (electricity, water, heat, ...)
  • Environmental technology: sewage treatment plants, CHPs, landfills, cooling water and wastewater systems
  • Energy generation: CHPs, turbines, heating centers, ...
  • Air conditioning: air conditioning and ventilation systems
  • Process industry: Data analysis of on-site facilities, ...
  • Manufacturing industry: acquisition, archiving and management of machine data
