Rockwell Automation brings The Connected Enterprise to life

24 September 2015

Visitors can experience how Industry 4.0 principles are being deployed – new automation controller hardware will be presented for the first time.

How are manufacturers enabling machines, systems and plants to use the principles of Industry 4.0? At this year’s SPS IPC Drives Rockwell Automation (Stand 205 in hall 9) will highlight their Connected Enterprise approach that demonstrates how the principles of Industry 4.0 are being deployed in today’s manufacturing environments. 

At the Rockwell Automation booth visitors will learn how to take advantage of ‘The Connected Enterprise’ and bring it to life for themselves. Software pods on the stand enable them to directly visualise production data from simulated production lines and discover the benefits of real-time information for fast decision-making.

There will be live connection to assets on the booth including a process skid, an iTRAK intelligent track system - a track based system that operates in both linear and rotary motion and used multiple independent movers to increase performance and flexibility in many applications, a hardware simulated plantwide architecture and the ability to see live data from Rockwell Automation manufacturing plants. All this already using the principles of ‘The Connected Enterprise’ – Making Industry 4.0 work for you.

Security concerns? Visitors to the stand will see how systems can be securely connected using established approaches developed by Rockwell Automation and its PartnerNetwork Stategic Alliance Partners such as Cisco and Microsoft. They can discuss their approach with experts and discover how to secure their machine, equipment, plant and enterprise.

Visitors will also be able to see a significant step forward in automation controller hardware within the Integrated Architecture which will be showcased for the first time at the show. There will be a comprehensive range of new products that have recently been released or are due to be released shortly. In addition, demonstrations based around scalable automation solutions, safety solutions, process control solutions, information solutions and motion / drive solutions will be shown.
