ACCORDING TO THE COMPANY, the system design enables optimum customization, which is always needed with distributed systems. Software libraries and modules, complying with the Industry 4.0 requirements, support the design of individual systems. Econ9 is an active participant in the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Internet of Services. Communications from machine to machine (M2M) and from the control level to superior planning systems such as SCADA, MES, and ERP-software is the central performance feature of controllers in the Industry 4.0 environment.

The device is equipped with communication interfaces such as CAN, needed for real-time communications and the Internet of Things. A selection of software libraries makes the product useable in the Industry 4.0 environment. A bus system and PLC programing is combined with internet connectivity, cloud-capable software, and web-server functionality. The company presents its product at the SPS IPC Drives 2015, which takes place in Nuremberg, Germany from 24 to 26 November. You will find Epis in hall 7, booth 493.
