We are seeing how companies like Kunbus are using the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 to create ALCs like the Revolution Pi as well as UniPi with their Neutron on top of a Raspberry Pi 3. Industrial solutions at unseen price levels!
At Embedded World earlier this year in Nuremberg we showed for the first time the Bosch Rexroth ALC at the Ubuntu stand. So if you want all the industrial reliability of a PLC but the easiness and speed of an ALC, this is what you can find.
Rexroth is out-innovating the PLC market because ALCs can be integrated into the Cloud as shown with our Salesforce IoT Cloud demo on MWC, voice enabled via Alexa, and controlled by a long list of industrial edge solutions like Cloudplugs, Azeti, Cumulocity and many others in minutes. Distributed Control Systems can be substituted by App Enabled IoT Gateways like Dell’s IoT Edge Gateways 5000 and 3000, Industrial and fast innovation can now be combined.
“How ALCs disrupt the PLC market?” was a theoretical question in October 2016. In March 2017 it is fast becoming industrial reality! Ubuntu, Software Defining Every Thing…
