CMZ offers many libraries to allow communications between the controllers and the system devices.
The Data Connection library is a latest generation application for interfacing the factory computer system with the machine controllers upon Industry 4.0. In Industry 4.0 infrastructures, in particular when creating interconnections with the factory IT systems, a key part is the integration of the machines into the factory network.
The activities to make possible the data exchange between the machines (suitably predisposed) and the management software (MES, ERP …) are not always easy to implement and very often they require the installation of additional HW/SW components (gateways, connectors, etc.) that are expensive and/or difficult to configure: for example, the OPCserver/MODBUS gateways need to be configured while the controllers -having gateway function- must be programmed.
To overcome these difficulties, CMZ has developed Data Connection: a PC software tool very easy to use and configure.
On request we can develop libraries upon the customer’s project.
