Direct link IT & OT puts factories on cloud nine
Just imagine getting rid of cumbersome middleware or PC data concentrators at your production locations and being able to enjoy the benefits of direct database connectivity. Where Information Technology (IT) & Operational Technology (OT) come together something beautiful happens. We have created a production environment in which databases and machine controllers are best friends and keep in touch continuously.
More data to handle
Industrial IoT-enabled distributed analytics will further extend data processing and computing close to or at the data source. This is accomplished typically through intelligent, two-way communication devices, such as sensors, controllers, and gateways. In many instances, the data for distributed analytics comes from IIoT-connected devices located at the edge of the operational network. That means that the amount of data at your disposal in the PLC is growing.
Fast real-time data, better maintenance

Transforming the manufacturing industry beyond OEE
Sudden stops on a production line can cost a fortune. Avoiding unexpected stops and reducing scheduled downtime are key components to boost OEE.
Machine operators are aware that sudden increases in vibrations or noise variations can herald a serious shake-up on their production lines.
