Industrial Connectivity

A standardized industrial connectivity layer solves interoperability challenges and enables IIoT-driven business transformations, making efficient remote diagnostics and monitoring a reality. Read the LNS Research report.

What makes standardized industrial connectivity unique?

OT systems like MES, SCADA, PLCs, and CNCs are sophisticated but rarely networked. To break the silos of these niche protocols, industrial connectivity drivers allow manufacturers to get this valuable machine data into the network where predictive analytics can make it actionable. Standardizing industrial connectivity offers the following unique benefits:

OT systems like MES, SCADA, PLCs, and CNCs are sophisticated but rarely networked. To break the silos of these niche protocols, industrial connectivity drivers allow manufacturers to get this valuable machine data into the network where predictive analytics can make it actionable. Standardizing industrial connectivity offers the following unique benefits:

Universal connectivity

Protocol translation enables connectivity to devices regardless of age or manufacturer—preventing the need to replace trusted equipment.

Maximum data visibility

Connectivity scales across multiple facilities—unlocking previously inaccessible data for valuable analysis and insights.

Faster time-to-value

Replace time-consuming custom connections with a connectivity layer that implements quickly and builds value over time.

Secure and reliable

Support new devices, future innovations, and rapidly evolving demands—while safeguarding against security threats and costly downtime.

OPC UA adoption

Discover why leading IoT vendors are adopting to OPC UA technology for edge to cloud applications. Learn more about OPC interoperability, its history, and how ThingWorx Kepware Server can help make continuous, real-time communication possible.

Connecting your manufacturing facilities

If continuous operational improvement is your goal, standardized industrial connectivity is invaluable. Without full access to real-time, comprehensive data on asset performance and health, how can you trust your measurements, analysis, and improvement plans?

Drive Efficiency with Connectivity

Connectivity for machine builders

The need to innovate is matched by pressure to reduce costs. Standardized connectivity enables meeting both requirements. Connected machines promise an edge in competitive markets, while standardized, off-the-shelf connectivity minimizes the obstacles and cost. Reliable, rapidly implemented connectivity also keeps your engineers focused on higher-value innovations.
