The FCT and FCR module pair are DIN-rail mounted, fibre-optic contact transmitters and receivers that can send a digital contact signal up to 10 km over a single optical fibre.

Performance data on big screens boosts productivity
July 2022, SCADA/HMI, Omniflex Remote Monitoring Specialists

Visualising plant performance data on a big screen for everybody to see has become a mandatory requirement. Any size large screen HDMI display can be used with the EasyView FHD from Omniflex, enabling full dynamic 1080P HMI visualisation of any plant process or strategic KPI derived directly from the plant process.

Temperature monitoring simplified
June 2022, Temperature Measurement , Omniflex Remote Monitoring Specialists

Up to 32 mLC8s are supported by the touchscreen HMI, so a system with 2560 temperature points can conceivably be constructed.

Deploying IT into the factory floor environment
May 2022, IT in Manufacturing, Omniflex Remote Monitoring Specialists

The ongoing debate on whether OT and IT should be integrated has never been more intense. Closing the gap between the two has many benefits, not least of which are efficiency and profitability managed in near real time.

When your site has no power
