CEMS Product Overview

Fast and easy deployment

CEMS is fast and easy to install, and ready to use right out of the box with a three-step deployment process as below.

Step 1: Select equipment

The user selects the target equipment to which he wants to deploy CEMS. The target equipment could be a machine tool, a part of device or even a specific area of space. Such selection is the process of deciding what kind of data the user wants to collect, such as temperature, humidity, and distance, through CEMS and once such decision is made, an appropriate edge device, to which CEMS is deployed, is configured and delivered to the user.


Step 2: Install Edge Device

Once it has been delivered, the user installs Edge device, the terminal hardware, provided by CEMS. The device consists of (1) Machbase, a time-series DBMS, (2) a software module responsible for communication and management with the cloud, as well as (3) a number of sensors. Users simply attach the device to the target equipment and connect it to the Internet and they are all done. (For the edge hardware, CEMS is using CCM made by Turck, a German comapny, whose stability and performance have been duly verified.)

Step 3: Design Your Cloud Service

Now, users access, via Internet (www.cems.ai), to the cloud service already prepared by CEMS and design their own desired type of services and functoins, which include as follows: 

  • Dashboard design using map screen and dozens of charts
  • Edge device management and sensor fine-tuning
  • Set alarm type for each sensor and designate the person responsible for the alarm
  • Set report cycle and design content
  • Deploy detailed floor plan and equipment location
  • Create and manage additional users

Additional Steps: Utilization of Anomaly Detection Services

An additional step is required if you want a more advanced analysis of the sensor data being collected from the equipment. You can utilize the anomaly detection service and data analysis service through the AI module provided by CEMS' Analysis Center. The biggest advantage of this service is that (1) it analyzes the pattern itself, not just a specific data range, and (2) finds data patterns that contain risk factors that have not occurred before and then (3) immediately informs the user of it. 

Differentiated features optimized for industry groups

Fast installation and easy service deployment

CEMS guarantees that in deployment of edge equipment, it takes as little as 5 minutes or as much as 30 minutes for users to install it, collect data and finally make the system interwork. This feature radically differentiate CEMS from on-premises products, which customers take a long time and high cost to build and make work. It also applies when it expands or changes edge equipment in the future.

A powerful edge software package

CEMS edge equipment and its software ensure unprecedented data processing performance. Certain use cases in real world business may require extreme number of data collection and processing, which may exceed thousands per second. To this end, CEMS' edge solution provides a powerful edge device capable of storing and processing thousands of data per second and a corresponding high-speed time-series database as standard. In addition, support for various data collection protocols such as OPC-UA, OPC-DA, MODBUS, MELSEC, and Serial communication is available immediately after installation of equipment, and of course additional data collection protocols can be supported if necessary.

Provides large data management service based on data lake (Machlake)

CEMS utilizes a data lake (Machlake) as a storage for storing sensor data that occurs in bulk. In other words, all CEMS services store, extract, analyze, and transmit sensor data based on this data lake. Users can also directly access these data lakes to analyze data. Given these user needs, it provides an excellent way for users to directly access and utilize data originating from their devices at a small cost.

Provides optimized edge equipment

CEMS supplies to users standardized edge hardware equipment, which, in favor of the users, eliminates the unnecessary waste of time and money, given that in selection of edge hardware, the users need not consider performance, reliability, and sensor types required for the service. The standardized edge hardware equipment is supplied to users after configured in an appropriate form according to the users' specific environment and, as such, it is provided in a ready-to-use form.

Lossless data collection recovery and transmission

What would happen if a network failure occurred between the edge and the cloud during the course of CEMS service? Even global cloud service providers like Amazon suffer from minutes to hours of downtime per year and are far from perfect. Likewise, there is no guarantee that the factory or facilities maintained by the user or the network environment built by the user will not operate fully 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

A high-performance time-series database system under CEMS can store a large amount of data and retransmit it to the cloud, which is built into the edge equipment that collects data. Based on these technologies, customers of CEMS will experience the amazing ability to obtain all data without data loss in the event of a network outage for hours or even weeks.

Automated artificial intelligence-based anomaly detection service Analytics Center

CEMS provides anomaly detection service for user data through a separate menu called Analytic Center. Through this service, you can build an automated anomaly detection service for any sensor or multiple sensors that you have particular interest in.

When this service is built, it checks whether there is any abnormality in the operation of the specified sensor 24 hours a day, 365 days a year through the artificial intelligence module set inside the CEMS. If an error occurs in the corresponding sensor, a warning alarm is sent to the user through various information channels (mail, text, chat), and the user can determine the severity of the problem.
