EcoStruxure has been deployed in more than 450,000 installations, connecting over 1 billion devices. The solution can be tailored to serve the machines' domain of expertise. It encompasses key technologies for product connectivity and edge control on premises, using cloud technologies to provide analytics and digital services.

These IoT-enabled solutions help you to achieve greater operational and energy efficiency, by building smarter machines.

EcoStruxure Machine makes it easier for OEMS/machine builders to offer their customers smarter machines. The term ‘smart machine’ refers to machines that are better connected, more flexible, more efficient and safe and secure:

Connectivity: Direct connection to the broader network via Ethernet means smart machines offer data sharing and production planning capabilities that go far beyond those of traditional standalone machinery and automation. By bridging the information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) gap, they make vital production data available to those who need it most. The digital mobility that they offer also allows operators and engineers’ newfound flexibility to access data anywhere to diagnose problems etc., speeding up their resolution and reducing downtime. Some benefits of eco structure are as follows:

Flexibility: Plug-and-work, modularity, and reusable designs are all intrinsic elements to smart machines, making them much more user friendly than their predecessors.

Efficiency: Sensors and embedded knowledge enable smart machines to monitor their own components and environment. By providing the most relevant information to operators, manufacturing lines can produce in a more reliable, flexible and efficient manner. In addition, their ability to assess data quickly and in a decentralized fashion means that decision making can be accelerated, reducing backlogs etc.

Safety & security: These two concerns are priorities for companies today and smart machines are designed with them in mind. They improve the safety of operators and minimize the security risk associated with increased networking.

Smart machine technologies in the automation sector will enhance the machine builders’ ability to innovate and to differentiate themselves from the competition.
