Equipment Real-time Control Solution

Cloud-Based Real-Time Connection and Control Platform

To minimize the pressure of reducing production costs and increasing product competitiveness, factory automation has become a key focus of manufacturers worldwide, with increasingly more cloud computing to be implemented in different automation applications in the future. SRP-E2i140 is designed to enhance the efficiency of automation equipment management by providing real-time connectivity, industrial interface integration, and by moving automation equipment management tasks from single platform operation to cloud-based operation.

Application Story

rtcs application-01

To minimize the pressure of reducing production costs and increasing product competitiveness, factory automation has become a key focus of manufacturers worldwide, with increasingly more cloud computing to be implemented in different automation applications in the future. SRP-E2i140 is designed to enhance the efficiency of automation equipment management by providing real-time connectivity, industrial interface integration, and by moving automation equipment management tasks from single platform operation to cloud-based operation.

Solution

This project required three major technologies: real-time operation, servo motor control/connectivity, and data collection for cloud management. For this, Advantech provided the SRP-E2i140, a solution-ready package which uses Intel® Celeron® J1900 and Atom™ E3825/E3845 processer with automation I/O including Ethernet and CANbus, builds a real-time environment with different industrial Fieldbus and peripheral drivers under Windows 7/10, and provides WISE-PaaS/EnSaaS, an industrial cloud service driving efficiency.
