Most newly delivered production machines will be operating far into the future, during which time their roles may change. Integrating the latest Modicon M262 controller is a great first step to delivering IIoT capable machines that anticipate future needs. Machine builders can now enjoy a choice of M262 starter kits on offer from Schneider Electric Alliance Master Distributor BPX.
The Modicon M262 controllers address this need by providing cyber-secure connectivity, data management and visibility to remote machines. Being designed and shipped with embedded cloud connectivity means there is no need to add a gateway. This also opens the door to machine builders for managing both OEE and predictive maintenance services to customers. It provides direct integration with Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure platform, which links hardware and software through both cloud and local edge connections.
In addition, The M262 connects with EcoStruxure Machine Advisor, a digital tool giving machine builders unprecedented insight into their machines. Machine Advisor also allows OEMs to enable asset monitoring and predictive maintenance, thereby expanding the possibilities for generating end-user services revenue.
EcoStruxure Machine Advisor provides Modicon M262 users with pre-configured libraries and protocols that are ready to use. Markedly, Schneider Electric claims the benefit of up to 30% faster time to market through simplified design and engineering. The M262 starter kits also include a version of the Machine Adviser license.
