Industry 4.0 Changes Selection Criteria For Machine Control Architecture: Why IPC Now Prevails over PLC and PAC for Machine Control
Learn the differences between PLC, PAC and IPC based machine controls, while exploring how Industry 4.0 changes the requirements for a valuable machine control architecture.
White Paper Overview
Today’s more flexible, faster, smarter machines can communicate with one other and process/analyze data in real-time, creating game-changing economic and productivity opportunities. Importantly, information sharing via Industry 4.0 standards combined with artificial intelligence will only increase the speed with which demands will be put on the system. Companies offering machine-automation and machine-control systems that are the most flexible, precise and highest-performing will generate the most value for their customers.
This white paper will describe the differences between PLC, PAC and IPC based machine controls, while exploring how Industry 4.0 changes the requirements for a valuable machine control architecture and explains why the IPC now offers, by far, the best machine control architecture compared to PLC or PAC.
