Industrial processes are expected to achieve ever-increasing levels of effectiveness and efficiency. Operators of machinery and equipment continue to intensify their focus on the Industrial Internet of Things. To take full advantage of their connected factories, the machinery and equipment must provide a connection to the cloud. This is achieved using what are known as edge devices – they sit on the threshold between operational technology and information technology. B&R also proviedes solutions for that.
Your B&R Team
The new widget offered with B&R's web-based HMI solution makes it easier than ever to visualize complex manufacturing processes with dynamic HMI content. Called "Paper", the widget allows users to animate SVG images with runtime data.
With the Orange Box from B&R, users are now given access to energy and process data from previously unreadable, unlinked machines.
In the case brownfields, it was previously difficult to determine the data required for overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). Now there is a solution available that automatically collects, unifies and analyzes operating data from previously unlinked systems, and calculates the OEE in real-time.
The modular X90 control and I/O system can now be equipped with condition monitoring functions. Condition-based predictive maintenance can maximize machine availability and save the considerable cost of outages and unplanned service calls.
