Machine con­nec­tiv­i­ty

Regard­less of whether it is an exist­ing plant or a mod­ern plant with var­i­ous con­trol sys­tems, we will find a solu­tion tai­lored to your plant. With­out long down­times or cost-inten­sive IT projects, we record all machine data rel­e­vant to you and for­ward it to a high­er-lev­el IT sys­tem. In doing so, we adapt to your exist­ing machine and IT infra­struc­ture to make inte­gra­tion of the new sys­tem as easy as pos­si­ble for you.

Realise the power of your data

Data is not called “the gold of the 21st cen­tu­ry” for noth­ing. At the fore­front is the trans­paren­cy of your sys­tem, which cre­ates a deci­sive com­pet­i­tive advan­tage for you. Get com­pre­hen­sive infor­ma­tion on mal­func­tions, down­times, plant run­ning times and scrap rates and opti­mise your pro­duc­tion. The stor­age of pro­duc­tion and process data, assigned to a spe­cif­ic batch or order, enables you to trace unex­pect­ed pro­duc­tion errors (trace­abil­i­ty).

It is a sign of qual­i­ty and often also a legal require­ment that you can record infor­ma­tion on every process step of your prod­uct and store it in data­bas­es for sev­er­al years. Use machine con­nec­tiv­i­ty to cre­ate intel­li­gent and net­worked pro­duc­tion and pave your way towards Indus­try 4.0 and IoT.

What are the requirements? 

In the first step, the machine must be con­nect­ed to the com­pa­ny net­work via an Eth­er­net inter­face. Many con­trollers already have cor­re­spond­ing inter­faces, and there are also var­i­ous options for retro­fitting old­er con­trollers. In this con­text, we are also hap­py to offer our IT secu­ri­ty analy­sis and check your net­work struc­ture and firewalls.

Most mod­ern con­trollers already have one of the most impor­tant com­mu­ni­ca­tion pro­to­cols, OPC UA. If it is not inte­grat­ed in an old­er con­trol sys­tem, it can be retro­fit­ted via exter­nal hard­ware, an OPC UA gate­way or OPC UA serv­er.
