Historically, PLCs shared their data using methods such as writing data to memory cards then transferring the files to a network, or data tags were read by an HMI, SCADA, Historian, DCS, or some other higher-level software. Those capabilities still exist. But now there are other options.
PLCs have been doing a lot of this work for decades. However, there are some newer functionalities in our PLCs that make this marketing concept easier to implement. Learn more about “3 Methods for Sharing Data from an IIoT PLC” to understand these functionalities.
Traceability is vital for protecting your brand, and it can also provide valuable information for improving your processes. We use our experience in tracking, tracing, and controlling using Omron solutions to help manufacturers in the pharmaceutical and biomedical industries build robust systems.
Kyntronics SMART Hydraulic Actuators combine the best features of hydraulic power with the precision of servo control (used in ball screw & roller screw electro-mechanical actuators), without the inherent disadvantages of those approaches.
