A basic requirement for Industry 4.0 is a uniform communication system for all participants. Profinet is one such standardized communication system, for example.
The new motrona PN350 display enables the fieldbus connection for our touchMATRIX® display series. Process data are recorded, calculated, evaluated, displayed and passed on via this bus interface.
A specific application can be found in the field of high-bay warehouse systems. Here, the stocks of various materials and components can be centrally collected via sensors or ERP systems. To display the current stock levels to the users on site, the centrally stored values can be passed on via Profinet to our on-site indicator. The indicator can then detect the quantity removed via sensors and forward it to the central controller so that the stocks are always correct.
