Hark Connect

Enterprise connectivity for industrial assets, buildings management systems and sensors. Stream data from your assets and machines via industry standard protocols.

Securely connect to and collect data from any system source in real-time.

What is Hark Connect?

Hark Connect is software that provides connectivity to industrial devices, assets and sensors on the edge, in the cloud and on-premises. 

Configuration can be managed by an easy-to-use web interface whether deployed on-premises or in the cloud.

We can connect the Hark Platform to many assets

Hark Connect Features

Here are some of the features that help leading organisations connect to and monitor all of the buildings and assets within their estate. 

Support for Industry Standard Protocols

MQTT, Modbus/TCP, Modbus/RTU BACNet, OPC-UA and more.

Vendor Agnostic

Support devices from manufacturers such as Schneider Electric, Honeywell, Allen Bradley, Omron, ABB and more.

Develop Custom Integrations

Build your own custom applications on top of Hark Connect using API’s and Webhooks.

Cloud Connectors

Stream data directly into Microsoft Azure through Eventhubs, Table Storage and Blob Storage.

Database,  BI Connectors  and Backup Options 

Stream data into your own database systems such as PostgreSQL, Timescale, InfluxDB and more. Save and backup mission-critical data in globally redundant cloud storage providers; choose which global region you want to store your mission critical data.

Edge or Cloud Options

Deploy Hark Connect on the edge, in the cloud or hybrid. Hark Connect can be deployed on industrial gateways such as Intel or ARM.

Edge Connectivity

Take data straight from your devices to the cloud using Hark Connect on an industrial gateway.

Once You're Connected
Use Hark Analytics to Visualise Your Data

Analyse operational data from industrial assets wherever you are, on a user-friendly, customisable dashboard. You can even set rules and alerts, so the right people are kept up-to-date with the right data, at all times. 

Connectivity

Secure asset connectivity for retrieving real-time sensor and status information. We use off-the-shelf industrial components, including sensors, gateways and other systems for an extensive range of options. We offer a cost-effective deployment with industry standard protocols and a fully plug-and-play experience for ease and speed. 

Visibility

An easy-to-use user interface that allows users to quickly visualise and review asset data in real-time. Graphs, comparisons, status widgets and other components are essentially for easy to access to the data for maximum impact and visibility within an organisation. ​

Analytics

Business intelligence and analytical tools for teams who are tasked with diving into analytical data at a micro and macroscopic level. Operator; statisticians; data scientists and they are looking for ways to report on or increase visibility of multiple streams of information within a business. ​

Automation

Quick and easy options for automation such as notifications to applications such as Microsoft Teams, Slack & Zoom. Automation with other systems such as assets and edge devices is also an option. This is ideal to increase efficiency of production systems, assets and various business processes.

Compatibility

Secure connectivity to existing industrial systems.

To unlock data and information, cost-effective solutions for connecting to existing assets and sensors are required, as well as having the ability to easily add new sensors to a single system. 

 The possibilities for what sorts of data can be monitored are huge, examples are: 

Internal Sensor and Instrument Data

Temperature, power, rpm, flow rate, process values.

External Environment
Data

External weather data, energy prices, other factors.

Process and
Asset Data

Uptime, downtime, utilisation, units / hour, failure rates.

Asset Lifestyle
Data

Maintenance information, 
comments and asset history. 

Our solutions to ensure multiple vendors of sensors and systems can be integrated into a single Industrial IoT platform for maximum extensibility options, meaning businesses aren’t locked into a single hardware vendor solution.  

What Protocols Can Be Used?

Modbus

What Protocols
Can Be Used?

Which hardware interfaces can be used to connect sensors and systems together?

RS-485

USB

RS-232

Ethernet

A variety of interfaces can be used to connect to sensors and industrial systems. Typically, serial communication is often available on industrial systems, process controllers, energy meters and other types of hardware within industrial settings.​

With the advent of the Internet of Things, many manufacturers are enabling connectivity using TCP/IP via Ethernet and Wi-Fi as well as USB serial communication for digital sensors.
