SMARTUNIFIER represents a powerful but very easy to use integration platform for interconnecting all industrial devices and IT systems including equipment, peripheral devices, sensors/actors, MES, ERP as well as cloud-based IT systems.

SMARTUNIFIER is the tool of choice for transforming data into real value and for providing seamless IT interconnectivity within production facilities.

SmartUnifier Architecture


  • SMARTUNIFIER provides an easy way to collect data from any Data Source and is able to transmit this data to any Data Target.

  • Data Sources and Data Targets (commonly referred to as Communication Partners) in this respect may be any piece of equipment, device or IT system, communicating typically via cable or Wi-Fi and using a specific protocol like e.g., OPC-UA, file-based, database, message bus.

  • With SMARTUNIFIER several Communication Partners can be connected simultaneously.

  • With SMARTUNIFIER it is possible to communicate unidirectional or bidirectional to each Communication Partner. i.e., messages and events can be sent and received at the same time.

  • SMARTUNIFIER is able to translate and transform data to any format and protocol that is required by a certain Data Target. This includes different pre-configured protocols and formats, e.g., OPC-UA, file-based, database, message bus, Webservices and many direct PLC connections. In case a certain protocol or format is currently not available it can be easily added to SMARTUNIFIER.

  • By applying so called Information Models, SMARTUNIFIER enables the same view to data regardless of the protocol or format being used to physically connect an equipment, device or IT system.

  • A big advantage of SMARTUNIFIER is, that in many cases there is no need for coding when providing interfaces between different Communication Partners – providing a new interface is just drag and drop of data objects between data source(s) and destination(s).
