Edge programmable industrial controllers

A new white paper from Opto 22 “Meet the Future: Edge Programmable Industrial Controllers” discusses how controls engineers can meet today´s demands for obtaining, using and sharing data.

The white paper focuses on three main communication challenges: complexity, security, and expense. IIoT and other data-intensive automation applications typically require many steps and a lot of middleware: hardware, drivers, parsers, and custom software. These steps are time-consuming to set up, difficult to maintain and change, and create major security concerns. This white paper explains how a new kind of industrial controller—an edge programmable industrial controller, or EPIC—can simplify and secure automation and IIoT projects, while reducing cost and complexity. In addition to IIoT and data-based projects, EPIC devices can be also used to provide real-time control for all kinds of traditional automation applications.

Included application examples bring these concepts to life by demonstrating how automation professionals are using EPIC devices to improve operations. EPIC devices free users to focus on what they want to do: connect legacy systems and smart systems, get data, transform it into actionable information, visualize it when and where they want, and perform real-time control.
