On show will be Delta’s integrated factory control and EtherNet/IP solution adopting its new non-backplane mid-range PLC, compact drives and industrial 3G cloud routers, as well as the cloud solution to realise real time monitoring and system management for future manufacturing.
Delta’s industrial automation technologies are focused on its spectrum of AC motor drives, AC servo drives, PLCs, industrial PCs and panel PCs, HMIs, IIoT routers and industrial Ethernet switches, products for power regeneration units, smart sensors, machine vision solutions, power meters, flow meters and temperature controllers. With its key components and technologies, Delta is presenting two major solutions:
- The Integrated Factory Control and EtherNet/IP Solution integrates the new non-backplane Mid-range PLC AS300 Series and hot-swappable mid-range PLC AH500 Series as host controllers, the SCADA System DIAView for real time manufacturing process monitoring, and other field devices including new Compact Drive MS300 Series, power meters and network converters to form a complete smart factory solution via EtherNet/IP communication.
All equipment operation data is managed by the industrial PCs and is uploaded to Delta’s internet cloud service via the new Industrial Ethernet Cloud Router DX-2300 Series for customers’ real time management. This system architecture fosters higher productivity and flexibility in a wide range of manufacturing processes with its ‘customer-centric’ logistics management approach. In addition, the solution is constructed with EtherNet/IP for fast, stable and reliable industrial communication among facilities.
- Delta’s Smart Factory and Cloud Solution provides a remote control and monitoring platform for real time management of factory facilities. This solution adopts Delta’s new Industrial 3G Cloud Routers DX-2100 Series to collect facility operation data from PLCs and industrial controllers in factories, and upload it to Delta’s DIACloud internet cloud service platform for management.
It allows managers and customers to acquire real time facility operation and manufacturing execution information from worldwide factories. The DIACloud ensures data safety for all users. Currently, Delta has set-up DIACloud servers in seven locations around the globe, and will have ten more built by 2018 to serve worldwide customers.
In addition, to fulfil the needs for future manufacturing solutions, Delta also has other new products on display at the show.
Focusing on the requirements for industrial integration and system set-up, Delta has introduced two new industrial software packages, and for advanced machines, Delta has launched the new Open CNC Solution to the European market for the first time.
