-- In particular with project-specific software development
, the German distributor Acceed
considerably extends its activities in the customer service area. The well-known distributor for selected network communication hardware from Düsseldorf, Acceed, has several decades' experience and expertise in the selection and use of components for industrial network technology and the IIoT. The current service offer for individual equipping and ready assembly of components will now also be extended due to the expansion of personnel resources for project-specific software development.
With the new focus on project-specific software development, primarily system availability and readiness for use should be significantly sped-up for the customer without burdening resources on the customer side at the same time. In addition to the compatibility of data protocols and interfaces, software selection and configuration is highly significant for the interaction of individual components in intelligent industrial networks. Put simply, finally the software decides when and how which data leads to which actions. Phrased differently:
the intelligence for interactive component communication in the world of Industry 4.0 arises via intelligent programming. As a distributor, Acceed already pays attention to the best possible mutual benefits and optimum interplay with regard to the expected functions when selecting the hardware it offers. Here, it by no means needs to be components from one specific manufacturer which best contribute to the solution; Acceed takes advantage of its status as a distributor for various manufacturers in order to combine the leading developments in the respective area concerned. Under this aspect, the Acceed experts are also available to advise you and are now strengthening their offer for software development and software-supported system and system components configuration. In the easiest case, device-specific snippets can be provided for integration in existing communication structures.
The number of networked devices is increasing rapidly in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Often, sensors and further data recording devices, for example cameras, are spontaneously switched to the existing network. This has advantages for the further processing of data, but also bears risks from a technical safety view. The more devices connected to the network, the more weak points exist via the IT infrastructure. Here, autonomously acting small networks can considerably minimise the risk. Here, I/O modules intercommunicate in pairs or larger groups, avoiding that data flows to local company or production networks or even into the Internet. Acceed provides its customers the fitting know-how for the configuration of such I/O networks with its new software service.
