Real-time analytics

PLCs are great for machine control and some analysis and trending can be done at this level. But what if you could talk directly to your SCADA, MES, ERP, or CMMS systems directly without PLC intervention?

IO-Link technology allows you to visualize real-time data. Trends over time, consumption changes, process value changes, etc. can all indicate inefficiencies in your process. To learn more about the power of IO-Link, click here.
