The IT landscape is changing: Infrastructure and software are offered "as a service".
This allows to create flexible and scalable solutions that cover the actual needs. The
user does not have to take care about the systems maintenance and security, the owners
focus is on the operation.
The business model known as "Cloud Computing" offers a lot of advantages that can be exploited. focus is your strong partner to bring your data into the cloud and get the best out of it.
Connect your plants, systems and machines to the cloud-based, open IoT operating system.
Cloud based control systems
Monitor and control your plants by remote using cloud-based services - without caring about hardware.
Access from anywhere
Benefit from device-, platform- and location-independent access to your data.
Monitoring the plant condition
Everything at a glance - monitor the condition and productivity of your plants.
AI-supported detection of anomalies to improve your plant components.
Determine the equipment condition in order to estimate when maintenance should be performed.
Data analysis and evaluation
We get the most out of your data and transform it to your needs.
Use Case: Control systems as a Service
Maximum security at clearly defined costs: our Software as a Service (SaaS) solution
The Edge technology provides new possibilities for business models and applications. Even
big amounts of data can be collected and processed in real-time - directly at the
machine. The use of container technologies such as dockers enables the provision
of apps on edge devices, but also in the management system.
Edge solutions add data processing capability to the automation environment. Data can thus be stored and processed locally on the shop floor without long transmission paths.
Simatic Edge und ActyxOS
Process and product relevant pre-processing, evaluation and display of data with future-oriented solutions in the shop floor.
Scalable and analytical
From a single machine to hundreds of machines and devices, from a production line to a multi-plant solution. Integration of Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) functions.
Traceability and Intralogistics
Track data along the entire production process. Intelligent and efficient control of internal material flows.
Data evaluation in real time and immediate feedback to the operator.
Open and Sustainable
Connection of the Edge solution to MES, ERP and Cloud systems. Devices and applications can be adapted to new requirements at any time.
Use Case 1: Machine connection
Transparent production processes through OEE management.
Use Case 2: Maintenance
Downtime minimization by recording alarms and runtimes close to the machine.
Use Case 3: Interlinked production
Independence from network structures through decentralized data storage.
Use Case 4: Material flow control
Optimized, transparent material flow on the shopfloor through RFID tracking.
Use Case 5: Batch production
Complete process data logging by using a recipe and order management system for batch production.
Use Case 6:
Edge entry per Plug & Play
Easy and cost-effective entry into edge technology with the focus-edge-case.
Due to ever advancing interconnectedness of machines and production facilities including
cloud connectivity, the risk of cyberattacks is increasing. The machines and production
facilities that partially belong to critical infrastructure, must be protected against
cyberattacks. The ISA / IEC 62443 Standard "Cybersecurity of industrial automation and
control systems" (IACS) provides an holistic approach to security consideration and
protection of industrial OT networks.
We offer support and solutions for the entire process by ISA / IEC 62443 certified employees.
Determine the system under consideration and determine their security level. Ensure the support of all involved parties.
Analysis of the system under consideration and determination of all connections. Determination of security vulnerability in organization and OT structure. Evaluation of the threats and likelihood in a risk matrix.
Based on the assessment, the systems are hardened and documented accordingly.
In case of changes of the threats and likelihoods, the implementation must be reconsidered.
Cybersecurity management system
The cybersecurity management system, described by ISA / IEC 62443, guarantees the availability and security of the entire OT infrastructure in case of plant modifications and expansions.
Functional engineering is becoming more and more important in the digitalization process.
It forms the central base for all disciplines, starting with concept development, to
process and mechanical detail engineering, up to electrical design, process control and
focus offers a software-supported platform for functional engineering in the field of electrical design, PLC software and SCADA systems. Furthermore, we support your integration process for functional engineering into your existing workflows.
The central database of the functional engineering represents the "Single Source of Truth" for all disciplines.
The planning of all disciplines is mutually available and can be used immediately.
Automated generation of bulk data
The functional engineering generates bulk data directly in software products such as EPLAN, PLC, SCADA and process control systems (EPLAN P8, TIA Portal, WinCC, PCS7).
Import / Export
The consistent database offers a variety of options for importing and exporting project planning data. This ensures a flexible and reliable data exchange between different disciplines or even different companies.
