Ei3's Internet applications are used by manufacturers to gather, processes and analyze large amounts of machine data. Users are provided with mobile apps, web pages, dashboards and reports that show key performance indicators describing the performance, uptime and quality of machine output. Actionable information about machine production becomes even more valuable when it is integrated fully into the enterprise. But in traditional implementations there are many technical challenges that make this a daunting task for many companies. Ei3â€²s Web Service solves this by providing tools that link shop-floor data into ERP, Quality and other enterprise computing platforms.
The API allows clients to communicate with Ei3's cloud servers in order to access information about specific machines. The API uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in XML and JSON.
Of the many APIs we published this week, fifteen were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll launch those fifteen into the spotlight, which included the Sendy API. Sendy is a self-hosted email application that claims to be 100 times cheaper than other services.
The RESTful Ei3 API is aimed at bringing its machine to machine communications to manufacturers looking to remotely control their machines, maximize efficiency, save energy, and cut back on green house gasses.
