Ready for industrie 4.0

motan is ready for Industry 4.0 with the development of an OPC-UA interface.

29/06/2015

OPC-UA (Open Platform Communications – Unified Architecture) is not only considered an important step towards a standard for industrial communication between the machines that is independent of producers and platforms, but also a trend-setting element of changing automation structures. It runs on even the smallest systems due to its scalability and enables the communication of motan units with the superordinate MES system (Manufacturing Execution System), as well as enabling a data exchange between machine and periphery.

The controls software provides all the relevant data, such as the availability of material, the most important parameters of the material data, and the energy consumption of the system, in order to optimise the system as a whole according to the individual specifications of the customer. The comparison of data that is consistently available, partially in real time, as well as a high degree of flexibility helps us provide forward-looking service and greater efficiency of the entire system.
