Prescient Devices Announces Integration with The Bosch Rexroth ctrlX AUTOMATION Platform for Rapid and Flexible IoT Application Development

BOSTON, June 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Prescient Devices, Inc. (PDI), a leading provider of SaaS based low-code edge solutions platform, announces integration with the Bosch Rexroth ctrlX AUTOMATION platform to help accelerate IoT edge application development. Bosch Rexroth's ctrlX AUTOMATION ecosystem and PDI's Prescient Designer together enable control, motion, and IoT at scale to provide a future-proof control and IoT data management platform.

Built for automation engineers and well aligned for the Bosch Rexroth community and platform, PDI's Prescient Designer enables a single engineer to build a complete edge-to-cloud IoT solution within a few weeks, as compared to traditionally IoT development, resulting in 12x faster development, 6x lower cost, and ongoing greater real-time management and analytics intelligence.

Prescient Designer's low-code, cloud-based edge solutions platform is a boon for Bosch Rexroth's system engineers and architects.

  • A single engineer can build a complete edge-to-cloud IoT solution in a few weeks
  • Traditional IoT development takes 12X longer at 6X the cost
  • Compatibility with Node-RED with hardened security and reliability
  • Remote programming and deployment
  • Advanced applications such as predictive maintenance, machine vision, and machine learning

Prescient Devices has partnered with Bosch Rexroth, bringing their industry-leading, low-code edge solutions platform to the new ctrlX AUTOMATION ecosystem. By integrating Prescient Designer and Prescient Edge into ctrlX AUTOMATION, Bosch Rexroth customers can accelerate their IoT system development, producing Proofs of Concept in days and deploying a total solution in weeks, all without IoT techology complexity. The net result is IoT system development at a fraction of the cost and time of conventional tools resulting in greatly improved ROI.

"Rapid pilot and system deployment are essential in the adoption of IoT and the accelerated acceptance of Industry 4.0," said Hans Michael Krause, Director of Product Management ctrlX World at Bosch Rexroth AG, adding, "Prescient Designer, when combined with the new ctrlX CORE allows automation engineers to rapidly develop and deploy IoT systems using its low-code platform."

Data is becoming crucial in industrial applications. Whether it comes from a PLC, sensors, or cameras, data enables visibility, insight, and intelligence. However, working with data in a distributed automation system has traditionally been difficult because there are so many technologies required: edge computing, data communication, security, orchestration, cloud computing, UI, etc. Most automation engineers do not have the skillset to program such systems.

Prescient Designer is Prescient Devices' industry-leading, low-code edge solutions platform. It enables users to remotely program their ctrlX CORE devices with advanced sensing and data analytics functions and combine them with integrated cloud analytics and dashboards. Whether it is one device or one thousand, Prescient Designer can support the programming with simplicity and scalability.

Leading third-party suppliers and innovative companies join ctrlX World to expand their business models and increase the reach of their solutions. Users benefit from a constantly growing ecosystem and the associated increased flexibility and independence in solution design.

"Prescient Designer is built for automation engineers and Prescient Devices is thrilled to now be part of the Bosch Rexroth ctrlX AUTOMATION ecosystem," said Andy Wang, co-founder and CEO of Prescient Devices. "The combination will allow a single engineer to design, test, and deploy an edge-to-cloud IoT solution in a few weeks. Bosch Rexroth engineers are already designing entire IoT systems for their customers."
