FactoryTalk Performance
Better manage OEE for more efficient and profitable operations

Improving manufacturing profitability hinges on improving Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), and, to that end, most manufacturers collect production data. They may, however, lack effective ways to analyze that data and/or miss critical data needed to identify the real issues affecting cost and productivity.

FactoryTalk® Performance is a scalable solution that helps manufacturers to improve efficiency with an automated system that measures and analyzes data continuously to determine key corrective actions required to reduce the things that reduce OEE.

These include downtime, unproductive time, cycle time and scrap. The application pinpoints which corrective actions will have the most impact, again and again over time.

The Connected Enterprise
Rockwell Automation's Vision for Smart Manufacturing

You have heard a lot about The Connected Enterprise. At its most basic level, the Connected Enterprise is about enabling the equipment, machinery, and devices in a manufacturing plant and industrial operations that is connected and can provide real time information as well as be controlled via intelligent software.

Smart machines/equipment allow manufacturers to better leverage the most powerful element that too few organizations today are fully capitalizing on: Their own real-time data. The traditional approach results in low productivity because it doesn't effectively use data from devices on the plant floor.

AB GuardShield 450L-B Safety Light Curtain
Patented Transceiver Technology Offers a Flexible, Scalable, Cost-effective Safety Solution

Unlike traditional safety light curtains which are based on separate transmitter and receiver units, this next generation light curtain system features a patented technology which allows each transceiver to be used as a transmitter or receiver via an innovative plug-in module. The functionality of a pair of 450L-B safety light curtains can be selected by inserting a plug-in module into the bottom of each transceiver. Once powered up, the transceiver learns its functionality from the plug-in module and begins operating as a transmitter or receiver. This advanced technology greatly reduces stock and provides a flexible, cost-effective safety solution.
