FabEagle®Connect as integrating an interface for a coating system of InfraTec GmbH

As a developer and manufacturer of infrared sensors, InfraTec uses the latest manufacturing technologies and software tools from the area of digitalization to ensure continuous innovation and high quality. The production of infrared sensors requires highly precise, multi-stage processes that document data-supported process values and test results.

The integration of FabEagle®Connect enables interface integration and data conversion between a coating machine and customer software for data processing. The data is provided by the machine OPC UA server and recaptured by FabEagle®Connect, converted and transferred via TCP/IP in XML format to the customer software.

Technical details

The production of infrared sensors requires highly precise, multi-stage processes that document data-supported process values and test results. Despite the OPC UA standard for machine control, interface integration is usually not possible without specification of the data exchange between the machine and the customer software.

In addition to the FabEagle®Connect integration solution, this also included the specification, clarification with the machine manufacturer, testing and commissioning of the solution to implement the integration project. The maintenance-free solution is managed by in-house IT and runs efficiently on a machine computer.


Customer Benefits

FabEagle®Connect enables fast and efficient configurations of Industry 4.0 and IoT interfaces such as OPC UA, REST or MQTT. The modular structure, standardised configuration dialogues and high scalability ensure that functioning configurations are provided after just a few minutes of training.

Data generated in real time also provides reliable insights into existing processes and thus serves as a base for future decisions. Thus, FabEagle®Connect not only increases the quality of data analyses, but also delivers greater added value for potential customers at the same time.
