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.
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.
