Device lets companies monitor machine health

M2M integrator and distributor DH Solutions is to launch an embedded M2M system developed on the Axeda Platform. Dharma, a data communications device, enables companies to monitor the health of that device as well as any connected tablets, laptops and handhelds.

Announced at this week’s Axeda Connexion conference in Boston, USA, Dharma will use the Axeda Wireless Protocol (AWP) – a messaging protocol used by M2M assets for communicating with the Axeda Platform.

It includes real-time monitoring and automated rules-based alerts on the data communications device as well as the field-based user interface.

“Axeda provided us with the ability to conceptualise, develop and deploy an M2M solution quickly and cost-effectively,” said Brian Rosema, vice president of marketing at DH Solutions. “The core capabilities of the Axeda Platform not only allowed us to develop Dharma, but also tailor a wide variety of solutions based on specific deployment needs.”

Dharma enables companies to monitor, control and gain insight into field assets and how those assets are used. A robust set of rules-based alerts provides IT network administrators with quick and easy insight into the modem and the connected asset, including overall device health, asset location, hardware and firmware details, and service-level detail.

“The development of Dharma is exactly what we envisioned when we launched the Axeda Developer Connection community a year ago,” said Mary Wells, CMO at Axeda. “That is to provide enterprises, system integrators, and developers with easy access to our cloud platform and let them quickly build game-changing M2M applications for the markets that they serve.”
