Project Needs

A Dependable Hardware Partner for a Unique Software Platform

Candi Controls turned to Logic Supply when searching for an industrial hardware partner to run Candi’s IoT Server®, an embedded software stack designed to bridge communications across protocols and network domains for integrators and solution providers building smart ecosystems and intelligent energy management systems. Hundreds of different devices Work with Candi™ through the IoT Server. Together with Candi’s Network Operations Cloud™ the IoT Server abstracts the complexity of M2M communications to simplify access, visualization, control and data collection for developers and third parties.

 
"Candi needed a hardware provider with the technical know-how, speed and flexibility to provide their clients with a dependable hardware solution that could be implemented quickly and relied on to stand up to a wide range of challenging conditions," said Cormac Walsh, Logic Supply Hardware Solutions Specialist. "Because Candi's software is used in so many different ways, they needed a hardware platform that would be equally flexible so we worked with them to select the ideal form factor, I/O and component configuration."

The Logic Supply Solution

The CC150 Internet of Things Gateway with Candi IoT Server

"The most critical point in Energy Management System deployments is the central data transfer and collection point: i.e. the gateway,” said Steve Raschke, CEO, Candi Controls, Inc. “We searched for a gateway partner with a track record of product availability, expertise and customer service to supply our enterprise customers with industrial PCs. Logic Supply was the nimble, highly capable, and quality-focused company Candi needed to support the requirements of our customers who deploy and resell IoT Services. That’s why we partnered with Logic Supply to have our IoT Server come standard on their model CC150 Internet of Things Gateway."
