Exploring the Foundation of Your Digital Transformation Journey

Digital transformation requires businesses to merge information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT). Rethinking their relationship and their supporting technologies can go a long way toward helping businesses meet their goals. Our new blog post series explores the enabling technologies behind the digital transformation phenomenon.

Unlocking CNC Connectivity with Softing edgePlug Software

Manufacturers running CNC machines with SINUMERIK 840D controls face the challenge of extracting performance and process data from the shop floor for analysis. This data is essential for optimizing operations via powerful business applications and has been inaccessible until now. The remedy is a versatile software solution that is scalable, cost-effective and easy to use, allowing manufacturers to extract data from their CNC controls while having the freedom to connect to higher-value applications.

dataFEED and Successful IT/OT Integration for the IIoT

When it comes to starting, operating and expanding Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions, information technology (IT) architectures play a key role. For example, leveraging IT tools like innovative algorithms can help you increase your production efficiency. At the same time, you may be facing some architecture-related challenges, such as plant- and enterprise-wide deployment migrations, cloud connectivity, database integration, programmable logic controller (PLC) connectivity, security and ongoing maintenance. While these challenges are typical, until recently it was impossible to build a future-proof, enterprise-wide IT architecture that makes ongoing maintenance possible. PLCs can take decades to upgrade, while the pace at which IT architectures change is dizzying by comparison.

Phoenix Digital Networking Modules Connect Newer Head-End PLCs to Legacy I/O
