Anguil Environmental Systems Inc. launched an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) software platform. The Milwaukee, Wis.-based company is seeking participants for a pilot program.

The platform is tailored specifically for enhancing operational transparency and reporting capabilities for environmental pollution control equipment. Anguil partnered with Siemens to leverage its Mindsphere software, which provides data security and complex development components and tools. Anguil’s IIoT platform is designed to leverage existing equipment data to improve performance, lower maintenance costs and prevent unplanned downtime. To further test the IIoT platform, Anguil is seeking industrial facilities with existing environmental technologies to participate in a pilot program.

Unlike the Internet of Things (IoT), which largely centers on consumer devices, IIoT focuses on bringing connectivity and data exchange capabilities via an Internet connection to industrial and manufacturing contexts.
