The Future is in the Cloud
Maintaining a constant overview of the entire production and supply chain means dealing with staggering volumes of data, but the analysis and utilisation of your production data can open unimaginable potential.
The SIMATIC MV500 series of optical readers in conjunction with the Mindsphere cloud-based, open operating system provides your plant with the means of storing, analysing and utilising this data.
These optical readers read operating data such as product ID with position and time in production which ensure that the results of tracking are available worldwide.
All this is made possible by a function block integrated into the s7-1500 controller which connects the readers to Mindsphere.
The analysis of this data increases transparency, allowing for the optimisation of production processes and supply chains with a view to improving efficiency and quality in production, logistics, asset management, and other areas in all industries.
