Accelerate your digital transformation with intuitive, scalable edge solutions in fit-for-purpose packages.
Brand : Emerson
Model : PACSystems™ Edge Solutions
PACSystems Edge Solutions is a portfolio of turnkey industrial edge hardware and software solutions. It helps to simplify selection and deployment, helping original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), systems integrators and end users to reduce the time spent integrating, developing and validating digital transformation projects. From low-footprint connectivity and computing to plantwide analytics and supervision, the portfolio delivers a scalable range of edge capabilities in fit-for-purpose packages. End users gain fast access to insights from disparate and stranded data sources across the operation. OEMs can securely and proactively monitor machine health, improve actionability and visibility into performance and notify operators of potential issues before they become downtime events.
More specifically, PACSystems Edge Solutions combines Emerson’s Movicon.NExT, WebHMI, Connext OPC UA server, and the PACEdge platform in newly configured software packages to provide connectivity, visualization, and a cloud-enabled toolset. Emerson says the technologies in this portfolio can be used to “connect openly to any field device or control system to create advanced edge computing, plant and energy analytics, and supervisory systems, then present that information on a single, common human-machine interface (HMI) from machines to the enterprise level.”
Activities possible with PAC Systems Edge Solutions include securely and proactively monitoring machine health, improving actionability and visibility into performance, and notifying operators of potential issues before they result in downtime.
Components of the newly combined PAC Systems Edge Solutions include:
RXi HMI : Improves visibility into machine operation and performance to provide operators with quick access to critical information.
RXi Edge Computing : Can capture data from any source to deliver real-time insights and machine learning that is immediately accessible to operators to improve decision-making.
RX3i Edge Controller : For real-time process optimization by combining high-speed, deterministic control and machine intelligence in a single device.
RXi Edge Analytics : Provides access and visibility to plant productivity, performance, and energy use with pre-configured analytics.
RXi Supervisor : Connects plant assets and production data into a comprehensive, real-time view of production operations with anywhere-access visualization.
