Your B&R Team
One intelligent station on the path through the production line is all it takes to create a mass customized product. Product transport is handled almost entirely by low-cost conveyor belts – except for the one station where the products are personalized. That's where the intelligent ACOPOStrak comes into play.
B&R has joined the OPC UA TSN testbed of Chinese network equipment vendor Huawei. The automation specialist is now participating in all three of the world's most significant platforms for practical testing of the new communication technology.
In addition to their real-time operating system, many machines also need a general purpose operating system to perform tasks such as aggregating data and sending it to the cloud, or to run business intelligence analytics. Traditionally, this has required the use of two separate pieces of hardware.
With a hypervisor, it is now possible to implement both systems on a single industrial PC.
