We digitize you to IIoT

The IT-technical administration of industrial systems will become even more complex in the next few years with the evolution of IIoT: large amounts of data from sensors and actuators will be collected in the factory, sent to edge nodes there and then transferred by them to server environments in the data center. There they are evaluated and commands for controlling production processes are reported back. During data exchange, gateways act as protocol translators and firewalls as security barriers.

AKHET® hardware from Pyramid Computer has proven its robustness and high performance in the IIoT – as operational technology (platforms for machine vision, edge device) in the plant and as information technology (platforms for on-premise or cloud servers) in the core network. The serviceability of AKHET® systems, long-term availability and technical support round off the AKHET® service portfolio:
Quality made in Germany – hardware and services for your way into and through IIoT.

Use Cases

  • Laser Control

    Control PCs are used to coordinate the influence of different properties such as ambient temperature or excitation rate of a pump laser.
    The Akhet® systems developed for this purpose are tailored to the requirements of our industrial customers such as form factors, climatic conditions and also to the fields of application.

  • Industrial Controller

    The monitoring of production status and configuration of equipment and sensors can be automatically displayed and controlled via industrial controllers. These controllers provide results to a central controller via various interfaces.

    Akhet® systems for industry and automation are designed for extended temperature ranges and meet the high real-time requirements by supporting Real-Time Ethernet protocols.

  • Clinical Laboratory Diagnostics

    LIM systems are the common standard for automation in clinical laboratories, for example for sample processing.
    Sample preparation, sample processing and evaluations are processed via main computer units.

    With AKHET® products, Pyramid not only supplies systems with optimized I/O for applications with relational databases, but also supports the customer in certifying the systems according to the legal requirements for quality assurance in medicine.
