Stratus® ztC Edge

Each year the expectations increase—higher output, better quality, less scrap. What makes it harder is that your budgets aren't also increasing. Updating your aging, standalone computers, and virtualizing your industrial control applications is one way to increase reliability and efficiency. But who has the spare time, spare resources, or skills to do this?

What would be ideal is a turnkey computing platform—one with virtualization and reliability already built-in—so that you can deploy a redundant SCADA/HMI system quickly and easily. A secure, highly automated platform that's specifically designed for the unique requirements of industrial edge computing. One that's easy to set up, manage and maintain, and reduces your dependence on IT, allowing you to focus on running your plant—not your computers.

1783-NATR, Network Address Translation Router
Simplified integration of machines into an existing network architecture

Wide deployment of EtherNet/IP in industrial automation means that there is a growing demand to properly manage machines on the network, while minimizing installation and configuration efforts associated with integrating hardware into an existing system. Machine builders can use the Allen-Bradley® 1783-NATR to deliver standard machines to end users without programming unique IP addresses. This enables machines to be added, moved, or replaced with little, to no configuration. By using 1783-NATR between the control network and the machine, it is configured once, which enables isolation of the machine's physical IP address from the control network to ease configuration efforts.

Are You Ready for Smart Manufacturing?
Is your organization ready for the investment and the reward?

Data collection, dashboards, sensors and machine controls have been around for a long time. So does that make smart manufacturing something new or just a repackaging of past practices with new technology? And for companies wanting to gain business value from smart operations, like new income streams, product and solution innovation, and increased asset utilization, where should they start? And how fast will they realize ROI? Improving productivity is a key benefit of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), but is it still the best target?
