Besides software technology and infrastructure, suitable hardware with enough performance is the key to a smarter factory.
Nowadays, as manufacturers face several challenges such as sudden crises or environmental change, turning into smart factory with Industry 4.0 technology is a key path for them to survive and even grow up in the ever-changing age.
However, before the industrial transformation, there are various complex digital transformation challenges to be overcome such as securely connecting the industrial edge to enterprise networks and simultaneously supporting both new and legacy OT systems, or deterministic communications from industrial endpoints to IT servers without impact on the safe and secure operation of OT endpoints in any way.
To accelerate the transformation of smart factory, besides software technology and infrastructure, suitable hardware with enough performance is the key to help its development. Portwell PCOM-B657VGL, a COM Express Type 6 basic module featuring 11th Generation Intel Core vPro, Celeron 6600HE and Xeon W-11000E Series processors which provide scalable computing power, safety, security, and real-time features, catches the key technical pillars of Industry 4.0-networking, performance, reliability, and security. It also helps you accelerate the development and deployment of your infrastructure and applications.
