Molex collaborates with logi.cals on Open Architecture IAS4.0 Platform
From a sensor to an enterprise application running on a cloud platform, the IAS4.0 platform encompasses multiple layers in IT, Edge, OT, engineering tools and operational applications.
“Distributed control, real-time machine-to-machine (M2M) and connectivity to enterprise applications are driving a paradigm shift in the industrial automation world,” said Riky Comini, director, industrial automation, Molex. “By leveraging logi.cals software expertise, we have jointly developed the enhanced IAS4.0 solution offering safe and standard control in a distributed fashion along with engineering tools that create value for customers.”
Increasingly, modern industrial machines and factories require autonomous, safe and secure devices able to communicate with each other in real-time over a variety of different networks using open protocols. Molex IAS 4.0 provides a solution for this need. The core of the solution supports a wide range of systems and devices from microcontrollers and various OEM platforms to multi-core industrial PCs. The highly scalable solution provides safe and secure control logic, multilateral communications in real-time using open protocols, and can run on a sensor or a complex device, on the plant floor, edge or cloud.
