Edge Computing, Embedded Systems
A practical solution for limited staffing adds assurance at the edge.
Edge technology such as smart servers can be leveraged create a uniform fabric of data and automation that ties together control systems, Internet of Things (IoT) devices and artificial intelligence (AI) engines. Case study shows up to 30% reduction in maintenance and call out costs and as much as 30% energy savings.

Case study: Used equipment had functional controllers, typically legacy programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and others had defunct PLCs or no automation at all. Edge controllers and input/output (I/O) devices helped integrate the equipment into a cohesive system, which led us to make an edge controller the central focus.
A global manufacturer explains benefits and offers advice about connecting the real world of manufacturing to the virtual world, through digitalization and automation.
