Industry 4.0 solutions take centre stage at Nuremberg show
Copa-Data will be focusing on Industry 4.0 solutions for industrial environments at the SPS IPC Drives exhibition in Nuremberg (Nov 25-27). The zenon Product Family establishes solutions for control, visualisation and data analysis which can be flexibly adapted and ergonomically operated. Thanks to the openness and platform independence zenon based applications can be simply integrated, horizontally as well as vertically, into existing or new infrastructures.
Furthermore, zenon allows networked, secure communication.
Production processes are open to attack, be it on premise or in the Cloud. Due to the continually growing number of cyber threats and the associated challenges faced by production companies, COPA-DATA is putting a further focus on the subject of security at this year's fair.
Companies that implement zenon can trust in effective security mechanisms. 128-bit encryption of the communication between server, standby server and client, comprehensive access control thanks to the integrated user administration and the active directory support, protect from unwanted data loss and more.
The objective of many manufacturing companies is to increase overall equipment effectiveness and at the same time reduce consumption in all factories. Often a great deal of optimisation potential is lost here, because large companies divide their production, and therefore the production and consumption data across many plants over various countries.
If businesses move their data from the zenon project to the Cloud, they can profit from tools for cross-equipment and company-wide benchmarking, and comprehensive analyses for total consumption or for quality figures from the entire operation.
The integration of zenon and zenon Analyzer in the Cloud platform, Microsoft Azure, makes it possible to provide all data from individual production sites of a company in just one system, in near-real-time. zenon Analyzer as a platform independent reporting software can process and present all relevant data in real-time, from the process to the ERP system.
