Mettler Toledo offers tips for defining operating boundaries and data objectives for transfer of weighing process data to PLC, MES or ERP Systems in a new white paper.
Efficient transfer of weighing process data to higher level PLC, MES or ERP systems makes manufacturing processes more efficient and more transparent, the company says. It can result in more accurate or faster filling and control processes. Increased transparency can improve asset use, reduce operating costs, and make complying with certification standards or industrial regulations easier, according to the company. But identifying and implementing the most effective system for data transfer and integration can be challenging.
Mettler Toledo’s new white paper addresses the different considerations between industrial network design and office network design. The document contains a list of questions to determine data integration objectives and hints to minimize network load. This white paper provides considerations for all those who must integrate weighing data in a PLC, MES or ERP system.
