We Will Show You How to Collect Data in an Open, Standardised Way

We have been in the data collection business since 2006 and some of our employees even longer. We have provided software and hardware data collection tools for hundreds of companies and have taught them how to use them.

In 2015, we created a new FOXON department, the FIOT (FOXON Internet of Things), which develops comprehensive data collection solutions for our customers. We have come a long way to become a leading supplier of solutions for collecting, processing and storing data from PLCs, CNCs, robots and other systems.

How We Go About It

Standardised data collection methods

We collect data from disparate systems in an open, standardised way.

Reliable third-party SW/HW products

Our key tools include the KEPServerEX communications platform from Kepware (PTC), OPC Router from inray, Ewon industrial routers and other systems.

Tailored communication drivers and data interfaces

We develop and program our own solutions for devices that do not come with (affordable) software.

Data collection via wired networks

The most reliable way. But if requested, we can offer our own solution for wireless data collection via the 868 MHz frequency.

Utilising well-known databases

We have extensive experience with popular on premise as well as cloud databases.
