Averna has launched a series of development tools that enable the real-time monitoring of assets.

The Averna ConnexThing Toolkits enable customers to quickly connect new and existing manufacturing test assets to PTC’s ThingWorx Industrial IoT Platform.

Each toolkit targets a specific programming language or test sequencer to accelerate the implementation and deployment of an internet of things (IoT) solution with ThingWorx.

The ConnexThing Toolkit for NI TestStand, which is available for download now, streamlines the connection between TestStand’s ready-to-run test management software and ThingWorx’s innovative end-to-end IoT platform. It comes complete with templates, data shapes, widgets and dashboard examples that easily link test stations.

The ConnexThing Toolkit for NI TestStand:

  • accelerates integration of ThingWorx with TestStand
  • enables easy monitoring of test stations and asset management using the configurable ThingWorx dashboard tool
  • orchestrates bi-directional communication
  • provides guidance for clean code and architecture.

“The Averna ConnexThing Toolkit is the first in a series of new operational technology (OT) solutions designed to help clients gain insight on manufacturing and test processes and deploy Smart Connected Operations,” said Jean-Levy Beaudoin, VP Platforms & Innovation for Averna. “By leveraging the power of PTC’s ThingWorx Industrial IoT Platform together with our test assembly automation and machine vision expertise, Averna is uniquely qualified to help organizations achieve their digital transformation, enabling further productivity and quality improvement.”

“PTC is pleased to have Averna in the PTC Partner Network, allowing for their recognized quality and test expertise to be made readily available to ThingWorx customers,” said JP Provencher, vice president of manufacturing strategy and solutions at PTC. “The ThingWorx extensions they have built help manufacturing companies improve test and quality processes by making them connected, real-time, predictive, and augmented.”

The Averna ConnexThing for NI TestStand is available to download now as a free 90-day trial, directly from the PTC Marketplace or Averna website.
