Industrial Controllers for IoT Applications HX Series
In the factory automation of PLC which control various machines and of IPC which are responsible for collecting data from machines and communicating with servers and other higher level information systems, besides globalization of the supply chain, there has been a demand for improvement in production and services using IoT technologies. Hitachi Industrial Controller HX-series provide an environment not only for controlling machines using advanced control functions, but also for seamlessly transmitting machines information to the cloud in the automation.
- Open Technologies
Programming language that conforms to IEC61131-3 international standards support the construction of global production systems. Furthermore, open industrial network EtherCAT enables to connect to field devices, and OPC-UA communication, which is Industry 4.0 recommended communications standards, makes it possible to transmit collected data to the cloud seamlessly.
- High Performance
Based on high performance micro processor technologies, both logic control and motion control can processed on the same single device simultaneously.
- Simple Configuration
Compared to existing systems, HX-series having PAC (programmable automation controller) features contributes to reductions in TCO, including the costs of development, commissioning and maintenance, as well as space saving.
