Line controller as an industry-independent line control system

Ensuring quality and productivity, with full transparency and traceability - this is our goal when using host calculators. Due to the open and modular design, our solutions are scalable and can be integrated easily and effectively, depending on the customer’s requirements. It is thus used in the most diverse industries.

The main application areas of our line controllers

  • Production lines for the automotive industry and component suppliers
  • Electronics manufacturing
  • Food industry
  • Pharma industry
  • Production of ID documents
  • Building materials industry

The modular design of the master computer system has advantages for both plant manufacturers as well as plant operators:

You profit from our expertise as a plant manufacturer

  • Short project running times due to a tried and tested host computer solution
  • Rapid integration through standardised interfaces for various PLC providers
  • Customisable functions through demand-driven further development of the host computer solution

You keep track of the big picture as the plant operator

  • Securing of traceability
  • Increasing of transparency through online visualisation
  • Support for manufacturing with many variants  with lot size 1
  • Independence of the host computer solution from the plant manufacturer

The connection of the host computers can be performed by us via numerous interfaces:

Available interfaces

  • Support of the industry 4.0 interfaces OPC-UA, REST and MQTT
  • Interfaces to various control systems, e.g. from Siemens, Beckhoff, Wago, Allen-Bradley, Mitsubishi and OMRON via TCP / IP, RS232 or RS485
  • Communication via real-time buses, such as Profibus, Profinet, Modbus, CAN, LON or EtherCAT
  • Uses of message busses such  as MSMQ, TIBCO, ActiveMQ with XML-based communication
  • Industry-specific interfaces such as SECS/GEM, EUROMAP, MTConnect or PV2
  • Connection via middleware technologies such as CORBA or DCOM
  • Database interfaces, e.g. to MS SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL and DBASE
  • File interfaces with manufacturer-specific structure
  • In the event that the digital interface is absent, collation of information such as the piece counter, machine state or energy consumption via additional decentralised periphery (e.g., Siemens ET200 or Beckhoff Bus Terminals).

We use our FabEagle®LC product for the implementation of host computer solutions.
