A Built-for-Purpose PLC to Database Connectivity Solution

System integration using a PC and custom code can come with a lot of errors in project estimation, increase risk, cost money and possibly even put your customer at risk. Fortunately, there are built-for-purpose integration solutions that eliminate the PC, eliminate custom code, and eliminate protocol conversion for PLC-to-database and cloud integration projects. In this blog, we show you how tManager from Rockwell, an in-chassis PLC module for bidirectional data exchange between enterprise systems and ControlLogix® and CompactLogix™ PLCs, does just that.

Easily Connect the Cloud to Siemens PLCs with Softing edgeConnector Modules

Softing has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft® Azure to offer industrial edge connectivity solutions that you can deploy from the AWS or Azure cloud. We show you how to quickly and securely connect machines, PLCs and devices to cloud-based Industrial IoT solutions in a typical brownfield project using our connectivity modules for the Industrial Edge.

Smart Extension For Legacy Process Plants

As the digital transformation takes hold of the process industry, many companies are facing the challenge of reconciling innovation and continuity. In response to this, NAMUR (the User Association of Automation Technology in Process Industries) has developed the NAMUR Open Architecture (NOA) model, which brings plant optimization through IT/OT integration within reach for the process industry. In this blog, we present a range of NOA-compliant products that process plant operators can use to extend their plant in compliance with NOA to directly reap the benefits of modern IT applications.

IIoT and Industrial Edge: From Concept to Implementation

What does Industrial Edge mean? What role does it play within an IIoT architecture? And how do cloud services from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and open source container tools like Kubernetes complement this architecture and help companies improve their processes? Our blog answers these questions and shows three projects in different stages of realization.

How to Eliminate IT Support For Your OT Networks

Control engineers and those in the manufacturing and the process industries worry about three things taking down their processes: the machines going down, the programmable logic controllers (PLC) or devices going down, and the network going down. This is where Phoenix Digital switches come in. Part of the Rockwell Automation Technology Partner program, these purpose-built Ethernet networking devices were designed specifically for control engineers to network PLCs and Ethernet devices in manufacturing and process environments.
