Complete automation solution modernizes Swedish dairy

Etec wanted to base their solution on a modern and open platform. The modular PLC Nexto and BCS Tools, the CODESYS based software, provided the performance and scalability needed for future expansions. Complemented by the iX HMI software, Etec's over-all requirements with regards to user-friendliness, scalability and flexibility were matched. On top of this, Beijer Electronics full range product offer simplifying purchase and technical technical support during development were other key factors.
