Automation

Enabling Tomorrow’s Industrial Production

Every day, the world’s factories are growing smarter and more connected. In no small part, this is driven by developments in industrial computer platforms, the central components for the control, interaction and connection of machines and processes. As a global leader in embedded computing technology, Kontron closely collaborates with its extensive network of partners and suppliers to push boundaries in security, reliability, manageability and datability – opening up new horizons in predictable productivity. 

Smart Automation

Kontron’s IoT-ready industrial computer platforms are designed to enable predictable productivity in a connected environment— quickly, reliably and cost-effectively. They offer gateway intelligence that is highly sophisticated, standardized and easily deployable and ensures customers’ solutions are ready for ‘Smart Automation’ (Industry 4.0) to enable highly efficient manufacturing in which production processes can be changed at short notice and downtime can be offset. Modular and ‘wartungsfrei’ (maintenance-free), they help you optimize TCO without sacrificing your innovative potential. 

Ultimate Connectivity

Kontron’s latest platforms provide multiple connectivity possibilities. They can act solely as a gateway, or can combine functionality such as motion control, human-machine interactivity and IoT gateways in a single platform. Thanks to our modular “forever young” approach, they can be upgraded anytime—giving you ultimate flexibility.
