B&R’s Orange Box: Smart-factory upgrade for legacy equipment

B&R’s Orange Box: Smart-factory upgrade for legacy equipment

June 29, 2017 4:11 pm

At the 2017 Hannover Messe, B&R presents its new Orange Box solution. The Orange Box enables machine operators to collect and analyze data from previously isolated machines and lines and get them fit for the smart factory with a minimal effort.

An Orange Box consists of a controller and B&R mapp Technology’s preconfigured software blocks – known as mapps. The controller collects operating data from any machine via its I/O channels or a fieldbus connection. From this data, the mapps generate and display OEE ratings and other KPIs, and can also share the information with higher-level systems via OPC UA.

Simple as a smartphone

Installing the Orange Box requires no changes to existing hardware or software. Equipment owners can achieve a substantial boost in productivity with a remarkably small investment in time and cost. Thanks to the mapps, the Orange Box is as simple and intuitive to operate as a smartphone.
