Schneider unveils innovations for IIoT-ready packaging machines

Schneider Electric unveiled new offerings for packaging machine builders at PACK EXPO 2019 in Las Vegas. These innovations, including the Modicon M262 IIoT-ready controller, the TeSys Island digital load management system and the EcoStruxure Machine Expert software platform, offer new levels of efficiency, reliability and insight into machine commissioning and operations.

Each of these new products leverage IIoT connectivity to engineer, build and commission packaging machines more efficiently than ever before decreasing time to market. These innovations support machine builders in the digital age that require greater innovation to meet the changing demands of their connected customers and more efficient commissioning to maintain their edge in the market.

Carlos Villa, Vice President-Industry US, Schneider Electric notes: "Today, OEMs are truly digitising machine building and connected devices alone are not enough to meet their needs as they accelerate the digital transformation of their own offers. These new EcoStruxure solutions allow our packaging and material handling OEM partners to differentiate themselves, enhance their offers and deliver IIoT-ready solutions to market faster than ever before."

The new Modicon M262 controller is IIoT-ready for logic and motion applications offering intuitive, scalable and reliable machine integration into Industry 4.0 environment. The Modicon M262 is designed and delivered with intuitive direct cloud connectivity to enable OEMs to maximise profitability and optimize their time, from the design of performance demanding applications to the commissioning of the machine.

The Modicon M262 embeds cybersecurity features and encryption protocols to provide direct cloud connectivity and digital services thanks to its two ready-to-work and independent embedded Ethernet ports. The Modicon M262 also easily connects to EcoStruxure Machine Advisor for more efficient commissioning and unprecedented insight into machine.

The TeSys Island digital load management system was developed to make machines smarter and help reduce machine stoppages and downtime for unprecedented productivity. The new connected system digitally integrates multifunction motor starters into machine control panels, allowing fast installation and configuration for the direct control and management of low voltage loads thanks to an end-to-end digital customer experience.

TeSys island's innovative object-orientated concept of TeSys avatars acts like a digital twin on top of the physical devices to facilitate integration and allows faster time to market. This approach allows OEM users to focus on machine design, load integration and control, while simplifying the selection and commissioning of each electro-mechanical component. The TeSys Island connects easily to the Modicon M262 controller and leverages the EcoStruxure Machine Expert software platform.

The new EcoStruxure Machine Expert is software for developing, configuring, and commissioning the entire machine in a single software environment, including logic, motion control, HMI, and related network automation functions. Thanks to many predefined templates, Packaging OEMs can save engineering time by applying complete libraries or even a new machine module available in the most modern and powerful tool-based software concepts on the market.

Flexible and scalable, EcoStruxure Machine Expert is a complete machine building offering with benefits all through the machine life cycle from design and development, to commissioning and maintenance. The EcoStruxure Machine Expert platform is a single software to program an entire machine, including the latest IIoT solutions like the Modicon M262 controller and the TeSys Island digital load management system.
