In the age of Industry 4.0, machines dominate manufacturing more and more. To efficiently leverage all the data collected in a machine, a proper connection to extract this information from the machines’ PLCs is of vital importance. MPDV’s machine connectivity solutions offer a broad range of options to talk to your machines. Our IIoT connectors (CT-UMPS) open the possibility to tap into any machine’s signals, even to those without a PLC. In this 45-minute webinar, we discuss modern protocol connections like OPC that are part of the HYDRA shop floor connectivity suite. Additional, we present HYDRA’s solution for Edge Computing, which is an emerging IIoT architecture to ensure data collection and connectivity between the automation and the intelligence layer of a manufacturing company.
