NEW DELHI: Reiterating its commitment towards assisting smart manufacturing in India, Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, announced the launch of a powerful solution for what it calls the ‘smart machine era’. The solution,NewModicon M262 controlleris IIoT-ready for logic and motion applications. Itoffers intuitive, scalable and reliablemachine integration into Industry 4.0environment, machine to device, machine to human, machine to machine, machine to plant or machine directly to cloud. Additionally, Modicon M262 Controllerembeds cybersecurity features and encryption protocols to provide direct cloud connectivity and digital services through two ready-to-work and independent embedded Ethernet ports.
Speaking about M262, Meenu Singhal, Vice President, Industry Business, Schneider Electric India said, “Several industries in India including manufacturing to a large extent, are striving to achieve globally competitive edge and scale, either by leveraging next-gen ground breaking technology innovations or by optimising the efficiencies of existing mission critical applications. Digitisation, pivoted on IIOT is the prime objective that not only bring down costs for businesses, but can also help augment operational requirements. With this solution, we aim toempower OEMs to successfullycompete and innovate in the new digital era by maximizing productivity and generating additional revenue streams by opening upnew business opportunities.”
The Modicon M262 ControllerisIIoT-ready, designed and delivered with intuitive direct cloud connectivity. No gateways are required. This enables OEMs to maximize profitability and optimizetheirtime, from the design of performance demanding applications to the commissioning of the machine.
“Connected devices alone are not enough to accomplish true digital transformation. You need to develop a seamless ecosystem of humans and machines, performing optimized, end-to-end processes,” says Cyril Perducat, Executive Vice President, IoT & Digital Transformation.
