DeviceMaster UP: SmartPapers – PLC to Floor Device Connectivity

DeviceMaster UP
DeviceMaster UPFor most organizations employing sophisticated automation systems for manufacturing, distribution, and warehousing have historically been hampered by technical and feasibility issues connecting plant floor devices to PLCs within the enterprise due to incompatibility with industrial automation control systems.

This communication problem is solved with the DeviceMaster UP.

When Smart Papers, a leading commercial paper manufacturer, set the goal to improve finished product quality assurance and gain more detailed manufacturing lot information using existing infrastructure, they chose the DeviceMaster UP.  It worked perfectly with their EtherNet/IP network, which extended commercial off-the-shelf Ethernet to the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP™), and upper layer protocol fully compatible with standard TCP/IP protocols such as HTTP and SNMP.  CIP allows EtherNet/IP product developers, system integrators and users to apply the same objects and profiles for plug-and-play interoperability among devices from multiple vendors and in multiple sub-nets.  EtherNet/IP provides manufacturers with a proven and future-proof Ethernet network solution, one that incorporates all the advantages that have made Ethernet and internet technologies ubiquitous and essential in office applications, while delivering interoperable, open network products that are supported by a vast network of vendors worldwide.
