Zebra Technologies: Network Connect for Automation, ProMat 2017

November 17, 2019


Hi, Leo Lowy here at ProMat, and today
we’re showing Network Connect for Automation. Traditionally when our
customers wanted to connect a printer or a scanner to a PLC they had to use
conversion technology conversion boxes, expensive, time-consuming, and points of
failure. So we’ve eliminated all that. Today if I want to take this label and
scan it we can see the label comes out of the printer automatically. Now, we
wanted to take that one step further and give you feedback on the printer. If this
was a wireless scanner you might be 30 feet away and so, if I have an error on
the printer, I’m going to know about it right away. If I have a more serious
error on the printer I’m going to know about that right away. That gives us a
positive powerful feedback loop from the printer to the scanner through the PLC.
