An EdgeScout OEE system can be customized to your specific machines or production lines for a fraction of the cost of traditional OEE with full functionality within a few weeks.
The EdgeScout Platform provides essential IoT functional blocks which allow the assembly of smart energy solutions with speed and seamless interoperability. Sensors, smart metering devices, controllers, smart energy monitors, and electrical grid assets can be plugged into the system and managed in real-time, over a secure network connection.
Uber’s success stems from the fact that they figured out how to leverage technology, in the form of a mobile app and remote connectivity, to make what was difficult and expensive (taking a cab) easy and more economical, thus causing a disruptive change in their industry. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) can be loosely thought of as the “Uberization” of industrial equipment. The IIoT refers to the network of physical objects in industrial settings – devices, equipment, buildings, etc. – that are embedded with electronics, software, sensors and network connectivity that enables these objects to collect, exchange and report data.
OEMs love the idea of remotely connecting their equipment but are worried about the complexity of managing connections, end-user security concerns and firewall and routing issues. Fortunately, there is a better alternative to VPN for remotely connecting.
EdgeScout Remote Monitoring is a turnkey remote monitoring solution hosted by RRAMAC. There are no PC’s to purchase, no software to install, and no code to write so you can get started quickly without a major investment. For an initial setup fee and annual subscription, your data will be stored on our tier level 3 servers with redundant power and automatic backups. You have full control of the access to your data with two factor authentication and full audit trails.
The EdgeScout Edge Node is a secure data collection device that is extremely powerful, yet easy to use. Whether collecting data from a PLC, drive, embedded controller or directly from sensors, EdgeScout comes fully configured for your application. Just connect the Edge Node to the equipment and plug it into a network, then log into your myEdgeScout.com account to see business level analytics such as production totals, downtime, OEE, and more.
EdgeScout is a cloud hosted remote monitoring system that does not require the purchase of PCs or software and can be utilized across several different hardware gateways. Our plug and play solution makes installation and set-up quick and easy. RRAMAC’s experienced team of engineers will work with your hardware gateway to expertly configure and customize your remote monitoring system.
Secomea’s SiteManager hardware is part of the company’s Industry 4.0 Certified remote access solution, which is used by major machine builders and system integrators all over the world. The solution consists of a software or hardware-based control unit that is installed at a factory (SiteManager), and a Web- or Windows-based client (LinkManager) operated by technicians or end-users. These two components are tied together via a central M2M communication server (GateManager).
Combining Moxa’s UC-8100 computer platform and wireless technology with EdgeScout’s remote monitoring system provides complete solutions for Predictive Maintenance, Environmental Monitoring, and Productivity Solutions.
The Ewon Flexy IIoT Gateway paired with the EdgeScout by RRAMAC solution allows you to collect data, monitor performance, collect data, monitor performance, improve OEE, and implement predictive maintenance to reduce unplanned downtime.
The EdgeScout solution provided Rotochopper with: detailed and historical alerts and reporting capabilities that allow for predictive maintenance – resulting in less downtime and money saved, a live link for service technicians and customers to see the same screen simultaneously, and enhanced customer service capabilities, increasing their customer satisfaction.
For over a decade, RRAMAC has been working with experts across a broad range of industries to provide simulation based predictive maintenance solutions to our customers. These systems can be hosted on the EdgeScout by RRAMAC cloud servers or configured as part of an on premise hosted solution. Read the case studies from three different industries to see how RRAMAC helps you save costs, minimize downtime, increase machine performance and more.

The quick start asset is an enhanced version of the proof of concept asset complete with user-defined graphics, an updated trend tool and optional OEE. This significantly reduces the up-front engineering cost and provides greater flexibility for the user to make changes to the project on their own.
One of the new features the quick start asset for IIoT equipment tracking includes is a graphic editor that allows users to create their own graphic objects for web dashboards, mobile dashboards and smart phone apps. This editor can be added into both existing and new custom assets.
Step by step guide to adding new secure users to the EdgeScout platform.

Learn how a hosted Software-as-a-Service approach to plant floor analytics can:
- Put business intelligence at your fingertips in a matter of weeks
- Implement Smart Manufacturing initiatives with minimal upfront costs
- Deliver a clear and measurable path to ROI
From smartphones to fitbits and more, IoT is trusted to inform and provide a certain level of comfort within our lives. Why wouldn’t we trust IoT to enhance the industrial automation world?
Many IIoT companies are really just providing simple remote monitoring over an internet connection, versus a turnkey cloud-based system. While simple remote monitoring can provide short term ROI, it falls short of long term business needs such as:
- Seamless data flow between software systems
- Continuous improvement
- Machine learning
- Predictive and prescriptive maintenance
Industry 4.0 accelerates the continuous improvement journey by allowing companies to leverage external computing power, simulation programs, machine learning algorithms, and industry expertise. Actionable information can be at your fingertips in a matter of weeks for a fraction of what it would cost to install, configure, and manage all of this internally. So why aren’t all manufacturers doing this? The most common answer is cybersecurity concerns.
