Nexeed Automation

Nexeed Automation

Control plus, the automation system for your machine

Rethinking automation: efficiency for machine manufacturers and -operators

Design the Factory of the Future now using our complete package of software and hardware. Implement your specific system and machine projects efficiently in assembly, testing, and process engineering.

Control_plus_portfolio

The Nexeed Automation platform combines all the advantages for machine manufacturers and operators. The platform is based on “Control plus”, the controller-independent software system. Its modular engineering approach allows machine and system manufacturers to realize their automation projects easily and cost-effectively. The software framework based on the IEC 6-1131 PLC standard, the extensive object library, and the visualization system are configured via the OES central development tool. This very quickly generates a testable software project which can be supplemented by process-specific sequences and functions.

Integrated engineering gives machine operators added value in the form of services and apps. The apps or assistant systems support the machine operator to handle diagnosis and troubleshooting throughout the machine’s life cycle, while ensuring constant high machine availability. The system can be integrated into customer-specific IT infrastructures via open IT standard interfaces, such as REST or OPC-UA, and also supplies machine, operation, and process data. Intelligent machines with a modern architecture make production fit for Industry 4.0.

Visualization

Edit your visualization

Machine visualization is fully integrated in the Control plus engineering system with display and editing functions. Visualization has a standardized basic framework with functionalities for user management, operating mode switchover, language setting, and fault display. The functions can be simply positioned by drag&drop. The use of objects offers many benefits: They include the control code as well as the matching visualization. In addition, Control plus can configure several user interfaces for each machine.

Select the solution to suit your requirements - active or passive, with or without camera. The mobile, cable-bound mPad allows operation and observation close to the machine, and simplifies setting up as well as troubleshooting. The integrated enabling switch allows the operator to execute machine functions when safety devices are bridged. In its active version, the mPad has an integrated Intel® Atom™ processor and is linked to the control unit via Ethernet. In its active version with camera, the mPad is also equipped with a 5.04 megapixel CMOS color camera on its rear.
