SPS – smart production solutions 2023
Connected Future. Seamless. Robust. Decentralized.
At SPS 2023, we showed you how we connect you to the future: Seamless and decentralized! This is how we have set a course for you to become future-proof while still remaining innovative.
Decentralization must be considered, planned and implemented within the overall system. Both the hardware and the installation concept must work hand in hand. Therefore, the installation concept and installation technology play a decisive role. Both must complement each other to form a holistic system. This is why we have integrated everything we know, our full expertise and a large part of our product portfolio into several applications.
The following highlights were presented at the show:
The first modular and flexible automation system of its kind. Vario-X allows all automation functions to be implemented on demand and decentralized - i.e. without control cabinet architecture. Vario-X consists of the platform of the same name and the accompanying automation and installation concept. It brings devices directly into the machine environment and ensures seamless integration of decentralized servo drives for reliable power, signal and data management.
Murrelektronik is your partner for machine vision installation solutions. When it comes to supplying power and managing signals and data for smart networking of camera technology, we are the right choice. Our focus is on decentralized assemblies that can be mounted and plugged directly into the machine environment, such as switches, IO modules and power supplies, as well as on high-performance cable and connector technology.
The first seamless, digitally and visually supported system with bidirectional communication between design, development, assembly and commissioning. It avoids installation errors and at the same time raises impressive savings potential.
For us, connectors are the heroes of automation. In networked production, intralogistics, packaging and the process industry, nothing works without connectors. Their performance determines whether digitalization succeeds. Automation is only as good as its connectors. They bring everything together, allow signals, data and power to flow while ensuring safe, smooth operation and error-free installation. Real connectivity heroes - made by Murrelektronik!
As a plant operator in a body shop, you have your hands full. How great would it be if the machine followed your every word and your hands were still free to insert workpieces?!? Thanks to Murrelektronik and Vario-X, this is a reality. "Hey buddy, open group one.", it really couldn't be simpler.
A bonsai lives here where the control cabinet would normally be. In our packaging application with industrial image processing, it is clear at first glance how Vario-X makes the control cabinet unnecessary. Potential areas of application include loading, unloading or processing on a moving conveyor belt. Decentralization at its best - the bonsai was pleased and survived the trade fair well.
