Bringing Open Source to Industrial IoT

Case Study: A&S Energie
One of Factry’s customers is A&S Energie, a Belgian biomass plant that supplies electricity to 55,000 households by burning 180,000 metric tons of non-recyclable wood per year—that’s 22 tons per hour. At its maximum output, the plant generates 26 megawatts of power. Factry replaced A&S Energie’s existing solution with Factry Historian, powered by open source InfluxDB. This allowed A&S Energie to increase use of the process data to make their staff more efficient as well as find failures faster.
