CANect® Portal is an end-to-end solution for remote monitoring applications that need to gather data from sensors, machines, PLCs, legacy controls, etc. It enables OEMs, Distributors, and System Integrators to provide customers with a branded and configurable application to go with connected devices and sensors.
Users are able to view machine and sensor data and insights, build dashboards, receive notifications on state condition changes, manage user access, generate reports, and manage their account.
OEMs and System Integrators are able to build and configure the application to look and feel like their own product, create integrations, and manage organization group hierarchy.
CANect® Portal focuses around the concept of users interacting with digitalized Assets in the application.
These assets represent real-world systems, machines, and equipment. Data signals, historical data, conditional rules, notifications, and permissions revolve around the concept of an asset. Assets are a collection of signals and those signals can come from various devices. The Digital Asset Objects do not need to be the same as the physical IoT Devices, which provides flexibility when setting up the system.
Browse Views / Groups
Groups provide organization for assets and dashboards, as well as and user access control.
In the Browse Group View, you are presented with assets and sub-groups, which allow for creating a permission hierarchy that meets organizational needs . It's important to know that users start at the highest level they have access to, they will not be aware there are several levels above them or other groups in the application.
Groups also control access permissions for users. A user can be assigned to one or more groups. Each group a user has access to allows them to see everything at that level and below with the proper functionality assigned to their role.
Ownership of Assets / Moving Assets
Ownership of Devices / Moving Devices
Adding / Removing Subgroups
User Access to the Group
CANect® Portal grouping functionality is very flexible. Assets are always in a group and that group can be at any depth. Assets can be assigned to another group and groups can be moved under another group. This flexibility provides options for maintaining viewing and access rights to users as a part of companies, sites/locations, groups inside a location, etc.
The List View shows a flat list of all Assets at the selected Group and subgroups.
