Manufacturing Automation

Automation has helped keeping manufacturers competitive in the global market, but now it becomes more difficult to achieve a secure and reliable connection and communication among the specialized devices. Ursalink understands the unique requirements from automotive industry and supplies machine builders with industrial cellular routers.

PLC is the workhorses of industrial automation. In manufacturing environment, PLC collects data from equipment like moving conveyor belts, actuators, valves, etc, and has all of them controlled. As industrial automation becomes smarter, data acquisition plays an important role to develop real-time dashboards and analytics.

With PLC connected to the serial port or Ethernet port of the Ursalink router, it allows secure and reliable remote access via 3G/4G to the equipment from anywhere in the world. This provides real-time monitoring on the status of connected equipment, contributing to reducing maintenance costs, improving support response time and increasing productivity.
