Connect Fixed Assets
Integrate fixed assets into a cohesive system that satisfies conditions for their zone and as well as within the entire OT network.
Your Material Handling facility is more than just a building; it’s a network of interconnected assets that have their own unique needs and challenges. Fortunately, many of these assets fall into similar equipment categories, making their integrations easier to manage. Some assets are mobile and move around in an area of your facility, while others are relatively fixed in location. These types can be grouped together and then their needs can be broken down. It’s important to make sure that these elements can be integrated into a cohesive system, both within their zone and within the entire OT network.
Whether a short live roller system or miles of transport belts, conveyors are integral for moving large volumes with minimal manual effort. But, as I/O density scales, superior cordsets and flexible data aggregation will be key.
High-volume train or linear-style sortation systems are key for handling materials with speed and accuracy. But, with EMI-inducing elements and poor cable management, data transmission rates and noise immunity are key.
Manual Work Centers
Even highly automated Material Handling systems use part-time manual work centers during peak times or to correct errors – and they require stable connections to associated systems.
In-line scanners make item tracking possible by quickly and accurately scanning materials at both induction and major decision points to ensure things go where they need to. This data traffic requires high availability and bandwidth.
Printing & Labeling
Whether manually or automatically applied, packaging facilities must label boxes and containers as they’re filled. The industrial network needs to accommodate a large density of connected printers and labelers.
Modern facilities rely on cameras to monitor obstructed or hard-to-access areas, including mission-critical operations zones, and connect back to a centralized control room.
