“We needed a database with historical capabilities — InfluxDB was a perfect choice for that as it is a high performance database that is optimized for storing time series data.”

Dr. Göran Appelquist, CTO, Crosser

Why use InfluxDB for manufacturing?

Built for developers, InfluxDB is central to many Industrial IoT solutions providing high data ingestion, compression and querying of data. Manufacturing engineers use the purpose-built time series platform to process data at the edge and replicate it in the cloud. With 300+ plugins to choose from, use your preferred IIoT protocol (.e. MQTT, Modbus, OPC-UA) to store, process and analyze sensor data into InfluxDB.

Improve factory operations

Use sensor data to gain insights into specific machine conditions (i.e. vibration, temperature, etc.)

Aggregate all machinery data to create a single source of truth

Better safety across manufacturing plants

Increase profitability

Increase factory output by reducing silos across organizations

Enable predictive maintenance resulting in reduced machine downtime

Simplify processes by Increasing overall equipment effectiveness

Modernize the manufacturing industry

Replace legacy historians allowing for better Industry 4.0 monitoring

Create digital twins used to detect reliability threats

Able to ingest sensor metrics quickly at scale

Why InfluxDB

Built for developers, InfluxDB is central to many manufacturing solutions providing high throughput ingestion, compression, and real-time querying of industrial sensor data. Manufacturing, automation, system, and process engineers use InfluxDB to collect IIoT sensor data used to reduce machine downtime, improve manufacturing output and improve plant safety. Use InfluxDB as a central platform where all IIoT metric data can be integrated and centrally monitored.
