The Predix Developer Kit should reduce the time it takes to on-ramp to the platform from hours to a matter of minutes. It comes configured with RasberryPi, Intel Edison, and GE Field Agent for industrial use cases. Its compatible with GE and non-GE assets and can utilize Predix Edge microservices. It also offers connectivity to Predix Time Series, Predix Asset, and UAA cloud microservices.

The toolkit will be made available to a select group of developers and partners in August and released to the broader developer community before the year is up. GE Digital also plans to eventually partner with other GE businesses and customers to build Industrial Kits for connecting various edge devices to the Predix platform. For instance, a Predix Safety Kit for the mining industry would allow companies to monitor oxygen levels and other variables in mines.
