The goal of this guide is to familiarize users with the IoT capabilities of the WorkSys platform and its individual settings, so that maximum efficiency and savings can be easily and quickly obtained from WorkSys. WorkSys represents an effective solution for digitization in Industry.

Terms, abbreviations and symbols
They represent the clearly determined place (location) of the object on the map (map layer).
It is a polygon composed of GPS coordinates, from which each structure of the object in the two-dimensional or three-dimensional space displayed on the computer monitor is created.
It represents a basic Performance Dashboard object into which I can create custom Components, owned only by the user who created it. However, we can share the Panel with other system users in the owner-selected mode of possible modifications (display or change).
The component represents a visual place for one object (graph, image, video, etc.) with freely adjustable width and height for the corresponding Panel.
Inline frames, commonly referred to as “iframes”, are the only type of “frame” allowed in HTML5. These “frames” contain a part of another website that is embedded in your website. Like a cutout. Basically, an iframe is a browser window embedded in your web page. Among the most commonly used iframes are google map and video from YouTube.
a digital entity
It represents a digital image of a mostly physical device to which data is sent. In certain cases, a digital entity can also be a tool for concentrated collection of specially structured data (eg electricity consumption by cost centers) without a physical device equivalent. However, it is an equally high-quality data source for further processing.
Advantages and principles of the WorkSys platform
WorkSys is an open platform integrating multiple applications that make up a smart city / factory / factory.
The WorkSys IoT platform brings many interesting advantages and implementation speed and efficiency, which helps companies in the implementation of digitization processes. The platform is horizontally scalable and is built using “open-source” technologies for greater security transparency.
Geographical clustering and high availability can also be ensured. Its really strong advantage is its robustness and high efficiency. This means that each single node can process and manage tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of devices.
The platform communicates with the user via a web interface, making it widely available for most devices. It can very efficiently process and manage behavior rules based on data, regardless of the origin or origin of the data.
Description of system architecture layers (from EDGE to Cloud)
The WorkSys system can cover all layers of the IT architecture. Thanks to the efficient and scalable EDGE layer, it can combine technologies such as software in efficiently concentrated locations and homogenize and streamline data transport to the cloud layer.
The EDGE layer is usually installed in the production or logistics part of the company and at the same time creates a place for temporary data backup in case of loss of connectivity to the cloud layer. Data transfer to the cloud layer mostly bypasses the “regular” Internet and thanks to IPSec tunnels, it is completely secure, without the possibility of “capturing” data during transfer. The security of the WorkSys system is one of its dominant advantages.
