According to the study “Digital Factories 2020: Shaping the future of manufacturing” by PricewaterhouseCoopers, 91% of industrial companies are investing in creating digital factories in the heart of Europe, due to that they can help companies to reach its sustainability objectives, through the reduction of the use of energy and raw materials.
To achieve this digitalization, it is essential to have information on the production process, that’s why the installation of integrated sensors and the interconnection of the process machines is more than necessary.
This exponential increasing of interconnected equipment sending huge amount of information simultaneously, implies an equally exponential increasing of information traffic within industrial networks. In addition to that, usually networks aren’t designed to admit this huge amount of information, therefore it is normal that conflicts and communication problems appear, which causes untimely failures of industrial systems, with consequent production stops and inefficiencies. of the manufacturing lines.
For all this, in Juan Palacios. S.L., given the great success of our Profibus Network Analysis service, and following this market trend, we have decided to continue in our position of specialization within the industrial technology sector, offering from now an Analysis service of Industrial Ethernet Networks (Industrial Ethernet, Profinet and Modbus TCP).
For this we have just acquired specialized tools from the german manufacturer Softing, which allow us to perform: device logs analysis, live list, inventory, topologies and trend analysis, GSDML files support, plaintext messages in diagnostic lists, reference and scenarios comparison, communications statistics, generation reports…
Do not hesitate, and if you have any communication problem in your industrial ethernet networks, tell us to solve it and to optimize the efficiency of the manufacturing lines.
