Legacy equipment can pose significant challenges for manufacturers. On the one hand, it is equipment that – for the most part – functions well and gives operators the comfort of familiarity. On the other hand, it may be outdated and incapable of integrating with newer technologies. Omron recently helped a company enjoy the best of both worlds by incorporating new edge devices that allowed for better productivity tracking without requiring the legacy controller to be changed in any way.
