Averna, a Test & Quality Solutions provider and PTC ThingWorx Platinum Partner, is launching a series of development tools that enable the real-time monitoring of assets. The Averna ConnexThing Toolkits allows users to quickly connect new and existing manufacturing test assets to PTC’s ThingWorx Industrial IoT Platform. Each toolkit targets a specific programming language or test sequencer to accelerate the implementation and deployment of an IoT solution with ThingWorx.
The ConnexThing Toolkit for NI TestStand, which is available for download now, streamlines the connection between TestStand’s ready-to-run test management software and ThingWorx’s end-to-end IoT platform. It comes complete with templates, data shapes, widgets and dashboard examples that easily link test stations.
The ConnexThing Toolkit for NI TestStand:
• accelerates the integration of ThingWorx with TestStand;
• enables easy monitoring of test stations and asset management using the configurable ThingWorx dashboard tool;
• orchestrates bi-directional communication; and
• provides guidance for clean code and architecture.
“The Averna ConnexThing Toolkit is the first in a series of new Operational Technology (OT) solutions designed to help clients gain insight on manufacturing and test processes and deploy Smart Connected Operations,” says Jean-Levy Beaudoin, VP Platforms & Innovation for Averna.
“PTC is pleased to have Averna in the PTC Partner Network, allowing for their recognized quality and test expertise to be made readily available to ThingWorx customers,” says JP Provencher, VP Manufacturing Strategy and Solutions at PTC. “The ThingWorx extensions they have built help manufacturing companies improve test and quality processes by making them connected, real-time, predictive, and augmented.”
Pricing and Availability
The Averna ConnexThing for NI TestStand is available to download now as a free 90-day trial, directly from the PTC Marketplace or Averna website.
