Each year the expectations increase— greater productivity, higher quality, faster changes. While some manufacturers are well into leveraging technology to improve profitability, many are still in the early stages. Nevertheless, most all would like to update their aging, standalone computers, and virtualize their industrial control applications to increase efficiency and reclaim space, but lack the time, resources, or skills to do this.
Increased operational efficiency: With pre-installed virtualization, automated application and data protection, and intuitive, user-friendly configuration and management tools, ztC Edge simplifies and shortens the time it takes to get critical applications up and running, saving you time and effort.
Reduced IT burden: ztC Edge’s self-monitoring and self-protecting capabilities make it ideal for unmanned stations, or remote locations with limited resources. Because it takes care of itself, both you and IT have more time to focus on other priorities and value-added activities.
Lower downtime risk: ztC Edge’s self-monitoring and self-protecting features help reduce unplanned downtime. Its virtualization host software can be updated on a running system (without requiring a system reboot), eliminating any downtime associated with system upgrades.
More deployment options: ztC Edge performs equally well in the control room, machine cabinet, or shop floor, giving customers more choice. Its fan-less, solid state design is durable, industrial rated, and can be wall or DIN rail mounted, with front-accessible color-coded ports for quick and easy installation.
