with - Factivity Forms Strategic Partnership with OPTO 22
Opto 22 manufactures controllers, I/O, solid-state relays, and software products that link electrical, mechanical, and electronic devices to networks and computers. Its products are used to monitor, control, and get data from all the machines and devices that are essential to their business.
"FACTIVITY has been helping customers WITH
their machine monitoring projects for many years now," says John Leibert, President, FACTIVITY. "However we're now at a point in our growth when we need to enhance our machine monitoring offerings within factory floor automation equipment, and Opto 22 has been our most common method of machine communication connectivity."
A number of FACTIVITY's current customers already enjoy the benefits of having a single source supplier of MES (Manufacturing Execution Software) tied closely with automation controllers. "But now that Opto 22 has demonstrated a mobile solution with their groov product, FACTIVITY feels this will dovetail with its work currently underway with Mobile POD (Production Document) solutions," Leibert said.
