Enabling machine-to-machine communication

31 January 2021

All new filling machines from SIG now come with industry-standard OPC Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) connectivity built-in which enables horizontal machine-to-machine and vertical communication across the entire production plant. 

OPC-UA is the data exchange standard for secure, reliable and platform-independent industrial communications, helping to drive smart, connected and fully integrated systems.   

In addition, legacy SIG filling machines can also now be retrofitted with a plug-and-play installation providing OPC-UA connectivity, delivered through the Connector Module of SIG’s Plant 360 controller solution. This monitoring and control solution has been designed to optimise every part of food and beverage production by gradually integrating all plant processes and systems into one platform, no matter what equipment, supplier or PLC is used.

Having OPC-UA connectivity either built in or retrofitted on SIG provides the greatest possible freedom and flexibility when choosing other manufacturing components and technology partners.
