Integration with Allen-Bradley Programmable Logic Controllers
Zebra provides two ways to interface mobile communications and data
capture technologies directly with Allen-Bradley PLCs:
Zebra and SeQent FirstPage
Zebra's offers a market leading solution to the plant communications
needs of today's manufacturers that enables technicians, operators,
and supervisors to communicate reliably and seamlessly with one
another. But when combined with Allen-Bradley PLCs and SeQent
FirstPage software, workers can also receive alerts and updates
directly from your control systems.
Annoying and ineffective overhead pages are eliminated, productivity
across your plant increases, and unplanned downtime decreases as a
result of enhancing the person-to-person, and machine-to-person
communications across every corner of your plant.
RFID With an EtherNet/IP-based interface available for
select fixed readers, manufacturers can unlock the power of RFID
without requiring additional computers or technology to interface
between select Allen-Bradley PLCs and these readers — decreasing the
cost and complexity of bringing this solution to life on your plant floor.
