Siemens S7 PLC integration now available

PLCs are commonly used to control, monitor, or error proof production processes. Some factories may opt for fully automated lines, while others adopt a hybrid approach with some manual operations and some automated steps. But even in fully manual assembly lines, it is ever more common to find PLCs for data acquisition, error proofing, and to control assembly tools such as the Kolver K-DUCER.

The K-DUCER has been compatible with industrial PLCs via the industry-standard Modbus TCP network protocol from day 1, but today Kolver is making it even easier for automation engineers to interface Siemens S7 PLCs with the Kolver K-DUCER!
