Enterprise platform for devices, apps and teams
One Platform for Multiple Use Cases
IoT Management Made Simple
Create and manage multiple compact IoT ecosystems called swarms. A swarm is the decentralized, fully autonomous hub for IoT device management. Within a swarm, you connect, monitor and control IoT devices. Also, you install and manage IoT apps on individual devices or device groups.
Manage Connectivity: Any Device, Anywhere
Easily connect new devices or retrofit legacy equipment to make your production operation ready for IoT.
- Flash devices with the REflasher app, enabled for bulk flashing
- Manage device connectivity (LAN, Mobile, Wi-Fi)
- Benefit from an open, hardware-agnostic platform

The Ultimate Guide to Machine Data and How IoT Platforms Help You Make the Most of It
Machine data is one of the most underutilized assets of any organization. When leveraged to the fullest, data can unlock tremendous potential.
A combined IoT & AI platform can help you turn your machine data into an IoT-ready asset, combine it with other data, and make it meaningful in a business-driven way.

IoT stands for the Internet of Things. Within our platform ecosystem, an IoT device is a Docker-capable device that runs on a Linux operating system. Popular examples include Raspberry Pi and modern Industrial PCs (IPC).
The IoT device is connected to the sensor to be read or the machine to be interacted with. This makes the sensor or machine available to the platform.
Any IoT device with a Linux operating system and Docker service can be used as an IoT device. Currently, the easiest way to get started with the IoT studio is to get a Raspberry Pi or developer kits such as NVIDIA Jetson. If you are planning to connect IoT devices and don’t know how, you can simply contact us.
Yes. The Raspberry Pi is a capable lab and R&D device, suitable for a vast range of application scenarios. Developing with Raspberry Pi is cost-effective, simple and flexible. There is a wide availability of suitable hardware interfaces and a large user community. Robust hardware configurations based on Raspberry Pi are now also available (e.g. Kunbus RevPi Core 3). Contact us for more information.
You can use Docker-capable Industrial PCs (e.g. Beckhoff CX9020, WAGO PFC100) and can connect to a wide range of interfaces using various adapters. For easy communication with your machines, libraries are available for most protocols and in many programming languages (e.g. Modbus, Profibus, CODESYS, PLC4X, C, C++, Python). Contact us to discuss the IoT devices that best suit your case.
To connect a device, the device needs to boot a Docker-enabled Linux system. For a secure and encrypted connection, the device requires an individual configuration including a device ID, secrets, certificates, and other information.
To facilitate this process, we have developed the Record Evolution Reflasher: an open-source, cross-platform (linux, win32, darwin) desktop application to create bootable, configured flash drives ready to be used in IoT devices. To connect with the IoT studio, the Reflasher uses the custom .reswarm file extension including the full configuration for an IoT device.
You can also use the open-source Reflasher as an all-purpose flashing tool to prepare conventional bootable drives for an operating system on any kind of flash drive.
The platform allows you to develop software live on your IoT devices directly from the browser using your preferred programming languages and protocols. This way, you work with the machines and sensors in a hands-on configuration during development.
Connectivity is independent of the platform. The IoT devices can connect to the internet via wireless local area networks (e.g. WiFi), LoRa, mobile GSM connection or LAN cable. The IoT device ports can be opened and closed through the IoT platform. In this way, different network security scenarios can be implemented on the device. Corporate networks often have a similar shielded architecture.
The power supply of the IoT devices is independent of the platform and can range from power supply connection or battery to energy sources such as solar or wind.
