Mitsubishi Electric Europe brings new member to the e-F@ctory Alliance: HMS Industrial Networks

HMS Industrial Networks joined Mitsubishi Electric Europe's e-F@ctory Alliance as a new partner. HMS is able to provide a fast low-cost solution for interconnecting Mitsubishi automation devices via a wide range of standardised industrial networks, and it ensures the secure exchange of data between those devices, in the form of its "Anybus" gateways, protocol converters and wireless solutions.

The cloud-based "Netbiter" remote management solution provides a future-oriented system which is easily implemented in existing structures. When used in conjunction with Mitsubishi PLCs, frequency inverters and control devices, it offers an optimum solution for collecting operating data and monitoring automation systems.

As part of this collaboration, "Anybus" gateways and protocol converters offer solutions for expanding the possibilities for integrating Mitsubishi automation systems in a wide variety of industrial networks. The "Netbiter" complete remote maintenance solution addresses the M2M segment. Systems are available via a mobile radio or Ethernet connection.

The central element is the Netbiter Argos data portal with innovative cloud technology for capturing and displaying operating data. This enables data registers as well as process values, such as temperature and frequency inverter data, inputs and outputs and alarms for example, to be conveniently recorded to the Argos server and displayed using specially designed to enable machine manufacturers to offer their customers individual remote management solutions as an additional service.
