apollo - your sensor in any cloud.


Via Plug & Play into any cloud.

apollo: More than 25,000 sensors in your cloud in 60 seconds via plug & play

As an IT company, it is often not easy to choose a suitable sensor. The io-key offers the necessary flexibility. Select a sensor from over 20,000 different variants and over 350 manufacturers, connect it to the io-key, and within 60 seconds, the io-key sends structured, readable sensor data directly to your cloud.

Our promise: We deliver clean, structured, and readable sensor data directly to the cloud via plug & play. Through IO-Link technology and a wireless connection, the io-key provides the sensor data directly to your apollo cloud container and from there to your cloud interface via MQTT.

More about io-key IO-Link sensors

From OT for IT.

Integrate the io-key into your existing cloud infrastructure.

apollo brings structured and readable sensor data into your cloud via plug & play. Whether on AWS, Azure, or in your private cloud; apollo offers the possibility to connect the io-key and thus more than 20,000 industrial sensors from over 350 manufacturers directly to your cloud.

With its new apollo container architecture, autosen addresses integrators, cloud operators, software developers, IT service providers, and IoT natives. apollo takes care of the data preparation and delivers sensor values of the connected sensor to your broker via MQTT in less than 1 minute.

100 x faster, 10 x cheaper

Generate KPIs in minutes & dramatically reduce your cost structure.

The io-key enables true plug & play through the use of IO-Link sensor technology. No IT setup is required in combination with mobile connectivity (sim card integrated into the housing). The gateway is a true OT field device with IP65 protection. Once integrated into your cloud, apollo delivers sensor data directly to your infrastructure via MQTT. Via an API interface, io-keys can be managed and addressed.

With io-key & apollo you are 10x cheaper and 100x faster!

apollo Container Architecture

The container architecture offers many advantages:

No vendor lock-in: io-keys can run on many different cloud environments.

Cost reduction: self-management leads to a significant cost reduction in the operation of the io-key (up to 75%).

io-keys in self-administration: create individual solutions for your applications.

Full range of functions from the io-key: control is effortless via REST API.


autosen and the io-key ecosystem have a lot of experience integrating containers and supporting you with your implementation.

Developer tools

io-key sends data to apollo on your cloud

Start-up is as simple as possible.

1 Connect one of over 25,000 sensors to the io-key.

2 The io-key sends the sensor data to apollo; it translates the data into a clean, structured format.

3 apollo delivers this data to your cloud interface via MQTT.

From developers for developers!

We use standard tools for administration, documentation, and for addressing our apollo API:


Docker has established itself in container virtualization worldwide and is one of the most popular solutions in this environment.


Postman is a powerful tool for developing and testing APIs.


GitLab is a cloud service for version management for software development projects.


Swagger is currently the best way to document REST APIs.


Software io-key for integration testing

Use the software io-key and apollo completely free of charge for your integration tests.

The software io-key simulates the behavior of the hardware io-key and its connected sensors.

Therefore, it is possible to implement the integration without any financial effort. You can carry out the apollo integration independently and without hardware and optimize it for your system.
