IT meets OT
Intelligent data use
Modern production systems are based on comprehensive networking and an extensive exchange of important useful data between production and management. At the same time, more networked machines mean more complexity - and thus higher demands on processes and technologies. Knowledge of the merging of the IT and OT worlds has become a precondition for success.
Central use cases in industry
- Condition Monitoring of machines and plants with local data storage and aggregated data forwarding to the cloud
- OEE optimization capabilities with historical databases and dashboards
- Both on-site and in cloud environments
- Virtual Commissioning and 3D machine simulation to simplify and parallelize engineering processes
IT meets OT: the Lenze solution approaches
Our automation system offers you everything from the control level to the electromechanics for the implementation of a wide variety of tasks.
Benefit from reliable technologies, intuitive engineering tools and our open system environment. Our solutions are open for the efficient integration of 3rd party components and the integration into higher-level line topologies.
To enable machines in a smart factory to be integrated into the cloud, we supply IoT gateways and the cloud-based X4 platform for web services. This enables the simple and secure connection of Lenze's new generation of controllers to web services. And that allows you to keep an eye on machine data and statuses from any web-enabled device.
Our Controller c750 even blurs the boundaries between programmable logic controllers and industrial PCs. It thus offers an alternative to an additional PC by combining its function together with the controller in a compact form factor. This is one of Lenze's solutions to simplify the integration of IT and OT.
