How to Reduce Downtime, Optimize HMI/SCADA, and Apply Virtualization with Edge Technology
An Automation World hosted on-demand webinar featuring the benefits of Edge Computing through real world examples
Edge Computing improves machine performance, increases OEE, and ensures higher availability and reliability. Today’s data driven operations – where Industry 4.0, digital transformation and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are common initiatives – make smart machines and equipment critical to business success.
In this webinar, you will learn how to use Edge Computing to prevent downtime, break down silos and monitor and control from anywhere, using real life customer case studies.
Key takeaways will be how to apply Edge Computing to:
- Simplify your architecture by combining your HMI/SCADA with digital applications like historian, MES, asset performance, and PLC programming in one platform instead of multiple computers. This can be done using pre-configured virtualization.
- Protect your machines from downtime using an industrial grade Edge Computing platform with built-in redundancy, Class I Division 2 certification, and security.
- Enhance your operations by enabling predictive maintenance, managing your machines remotely using mobile devices that deliver real-time information to the enterprise and/or cloud.
- Benefit from embedded service capabilities that can enable or enhance service offerings and give end-users cost effective options with a defined ROI.
