Hannover Messe: New B&R portfolio with OPC UA over TSN

24 February 2020

At the Hannover Messe (Hall 9/Booth D26), B&R will be the first to present an automation portfolio that speaks OPC UA over TSN. And with that, the vision of interface free communication from the sensor to the cloud is now a reality.

The open standard means OEMs are no longer locked into a specific vendor and enjoy greater freedom in the design of their machines. Another exhibition highlight will be B&R's full integration of robotics in the machine control system.

The unified communication standard OPC UA over TSN allows components from different manufacturers to be combined at will. Replacing a multitude of competing protocols with OPC UA over TSN communication makes machine development both easier and more agile. The new B&R portfolio sets the stage for OEMs to start enjoying the benefits of the open standard today. Visitors to the B&R booth can dive into the world of OPC UA over TSN and experience seamless connectivity firsthand.

Switch to the new standard

In addition to X20 PLCs, a bus controller, industrial PCs and panel PCs, B&R's OPC UA over TSN portfolio also includes a TSN switch. Automatic switch configuration in Automation Studio saves time, making machine development not only more flexible, but faster as well.

The robot in the heart of the machine

Setting up robots and synchronising them with the rest of the machine has traditionally been a complex, difficult process. At the Hannover Messe, B&R will demonstrate how robots are now just as easy to implement as any other automation component. There is no longer any need for a dedicated robotics controller, extra control cabinet or separate robotics application.
