Industrie 4.0

Industrie 4.0

Adapting automation dynamically

The classic automation pyramid featured fixed communication relationships. If you aim to achieve networked manufacturing in the sense of the Industrie 4.0 approach, all participants in an automation system have to undo their static connections to exchange data vertically and horizontally, across system and company boundaries. This is called a CPS-based automation system, or cyber physical system.

PLCnext Technology forms the basis of the new, open control platform from Phoenix Contact. Thanks to this technology, the control technology fulfills all requirements of a modern, transformed information model. This allows you to dynamically adapt your automation solution to new tasks and production structures.
