Truly Connecting OT & IT
The CloudRail.Box acts as an Edge Gateway between the shop floor and the cloud. It works for Brownfield environments using secondary sensors (retrofitting) as well as in Greenfield scenarios with OPC-UA.
Features such as Plug&Play device provisioning, smart data transformation, advanced security functions and edge computing make CloudRail the most advanced edge solution on the market. It lets you realize IIoT pilots extremely fast while being the best choice for large scale installations as well.

Brownfield & Greenfield — One Solution
The CloudRail.Box offers two powerful ways to connect industrial devices:
OPC-UA for modern industrial equipment and PLCs (greenfield) and Plug&Play support for over 12.000 professional sensors to quickly retrofit old machines (brownfield).
Plug&Play Device Provisioning
The CloudRail.Box makes IIoT deployments fast and easy — no matter if it is just one sensor or millions of devices. Using deep API integrations, it automatically detects and deploys connected sensors or OPC-UA servers to the cloud platform of your choice. This reduces the time to connect an industrial machines to the cloud from weeks to minutes.
Smart Data Transformation
The CloudRail.Box automatically translates complex data coming from industrial sensors into well structured JSON objects. Besides the actual process value, this includes meta data like type, unit or min/max values. Thanks to a database of over 12.000 industrial sensors, all this happens automatically.
Works With All Cloud Platforms
The CloudRail.Box currently supports Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, Google Cloud, SAP, Alibaba Cloud, Aveva Insight and local MQTT brokers. CloudRail deeply integrates into the cloud platforms and goes way beyond a simple MQTT connection. It can automatically add and configure new devices on a platform, run edge computing like AWS IoT Greengrass, directly supports cloud applications like Azure IoT Central or uses special functions like device shadows.
Central Device Management
The CloudRail.Box comes with a sophisticated device management solution. It’s your central place to manage all IoT-enabled devices, even in multi-provider setups. Delegate data streams to your cloud platforms, deploy and manage Edge Computing functionality, monitor attached devices or install remote firmware updates — all from a single place. No matter if you want to realize a quick PoC or manage millions of reliable installations — it just works!
The CloudRail.Box has been specifically designed for industrial environments. The hardware is Made in Germany by the experts of Kunbus.
