White Paper: Monitoring and Controlling Plant Floor Data with Edge Devices

September 27, 2022

Industrial control has been around for decades and has proven itself as technology continues to increase yields and quality. Linux based systems have also been around for a long time and been used and embraced in IT applications, however they have not been that predominate on the plant floor. Today, Edge devices are changing the way systems are designed by combining the proven technologies of industrial control with open source Linux-based applications to further increase plant floor performance.

The merging worlds of operational and information control have made edge devices a focus for improving control system design and achieving greater productivity on the factory floor. This tactical brief shows how Linux and the cloud are connecting workers and enterprise staff to the data and analytics that factory equipment generate, achieving better production performance, more productive workers and better decision-making.
