B&R presents IoT solutions for legacy equipment
The new package of solutions from B&R makes it possible to integrate older, digitally-isolated machines into smart, connected manufacturing solutions. As automation specialist B&R is introducing Orange Box.
Previously unconnected machines and lines can be upgraded for modern smart factory solutions with unprecedented ease. The new package of solutions from B&R makes it possible to read and utilize operating data from older, digitally-isolated machinery and systems in a smart factory. No changes are required to the existing hardware and software.
New family of industrial PCs
The B&R booth will also showcase its new 3100-family of industrial PCs, which unites the performance of the latest Core i processors with a compact design. The compact Automation PC 3100 and Panel PC 3100 are highly flexible, offering modular interface options and fanless operation.
Another B&R highlight at the Hannover Messe will be its next-generation industrial transport technology, which enables efficient production at any batch size. The independent shuttles transport products individually and can be precisely synchronized with robotics and CNC systems.
