The Digi XBee Intelligent Edge Controller (IEC) brings together a comprehensive networking architecture to close the gap between field devices and the cloud and provide powerful asset monitoring and control. It provides a deployment-ready upgrade to existing industrial sensors with the latest innovations in wireless and cloud technologies.

In combination with Digi X-ON cloud, the controller can help companies monitor sensors or remote-control assets over long-range, low-power wide area networks, including LoRaWAN, CAT-M1 and NB-IoT. Industrial devices can be monitored with sub-second latency with alarms and data wirelessly delivered through the Digi X-ON cloud.

Traditional SCADA systems have typically relied on extensive middleware — including gateways, software and licences — raising the risk of unauthorised data accessibility and other security breaches. Industrial IoT protocols add security as an afterthought and require users to enable those features. The combination of complex technology infrastructures, communications interoperability challenges and immature IoT standards creates enormous hurdles for automation engineers. Additionally, standard SCADA and PLCs often require high network bandwidth and cloud capacity to provide sub-second monitoring.

The IEC is compatible with 90% of existing industrial sensors and controls, providing SCADA systems with an IoT alternative. It is suitable for enterprises across numerous industry verticals such as energy and utilities, oil and gas, water and wastewater, logistics and agriculture. Using Digi’s X-ON cloud platform, users leverage a single solution to convert complex protocols for the Industrial IoT into simplified data APIs, to integrate data with other tools and systems.

The IEC not only provides a fast time to market for IIoT OEMs and enterprises, it is also a value-added tool set for systems integrators and value-added resellers (VARs) to address complex IIoT deployments. It can be easily deployed into multiple solutions for a wide range of use cases, all through the X-ON device management portal.
