Trends in shop floor integration

RAMI zeigt die Ziele für die Shop-Floor Integration klar auf:

  • Moving away from pure transport interfaces, in which only variable values are transferred, which must then be anew interpreted by the interface partners during each integration.
  • Moving towards service-oriented interfaces (SOA) with clearly defined semantics, which are connected to each other according to the Plug & Produce principle.
  • Industry 4.0 supports the development of semantic interface standards, above all the OPC UA Companion Standards, which define such interfaces for specific industries and applications.

znt-Richter continues to develop consequently the integration plattform PAC according to the concepts of RAMI 4.0. Developing standards are integrated into the platform as an ongoing basis, so that our customers have access to the migration path to industry-compliant shop floor integration.
