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:
Protocol translation enables connectivity to devices regardless of age or manufacturer—preventing the need to replace trusted equipment.
Connectivity scales across multiple facilities—unlocking previously inaccessible data for valuable analysis and insights.
Replace time-consuming custom connections with a connectivity layer that implements quickly and builds value over time.
Support new devices, future innovations, and rapidly evolving demands—while safeguarding against security threats and costly downtime.
