    Overview

    Industrial Automation assists production processes in delivering maximum throughput, minimizing costs, ensuring fast production, standardizing manufacturing, ensuring product quality, monitoring production, as well as providing reliable and flexible solutions in manufacturing plants.

    The key drivers for market growth are advancements in industrial internet/M2M communication technology, increased focus on efficiency and cost of production, rise in the need for connected supply chain and increased production.

    We have extensive experience in industrial automation domain. We have been closely working with leading manufacturers in Industrial Automation domain, especially in the product development & connectivity. This includes hardware engineering, firmware development, device driver development, protocol stacks, HMI design & development, industrial IoT solutions and custom engineering tools & applications.

    Softdel Offerings

    HART (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer Protocol) communication protocol is one of the most widely used industrial automation protocols in the world.

    HART is beneficial because it can communicate over the existing traditional 4-20mA signal by extending system capabilities for a two-way digital communication with ‘smart’ field instruments.

    Softdel offers integration services, testing services, FDS Services and DD File Development & Testing Services to automation OEMs.

    Our Services

    • Stack integration with OEM application
    • Custom protocol development/ maintenance
    • Standard protocol implementation (HART, Modbus etc.)
    • Native IoT connectivity protocols support e.g. MQTT, Thread, CoAP

    In recent times, the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) has been rapidly growing. Global industrial players have been leveraging IoT technology to achieve business transformation, economic growth and competitiveness.

    Connected buildings, connected lighting, connected home, connected cars, connected industry: The list is never-ending. Research says, the market for Internet of Things devices will reach nearly 20 billion connected devices by 2020.

    Some of the key use cases in IoT include remote device monitoring and control, predictive maintenance, product personalization, Manufacturing and process automation. Softdel services are aligned to these key use cases.
