IMTS 2014 - The Windy City to Host One of the World's Largest Manufacturing Trade Shows

NEXCOM will showcase their fieldbus concentrator NISE 300 designed to help build a connected factory and harness the power of big data at this year's International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago, IL from September 8-13, 2014.

Fremont, CA August 12, 2014

The International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) will be making its bi-annual appearance at Chicago's McCormick Place this September 8-13, 2014. Over 100,000 manufacturing professionals from around the world will convene in the windy city where they can interact with 1,900 exhibitors to learn new ideas and insights on the manufacturing industry.

At this year's IMTS, NEXCOM, an innovative supplier in vertical application markets, will be demonstrating its total solutions, bringing in cyber-physical systems to construct a future of smart, green, and urban production. Visitors will witness how NEXCOM's total solutions stay on the fast track to realize Factory of Things and to build a smart factory in a cost effective manner.

Among NEXCOM's line-up of demonstration products will be the NISE 300 Fieldbus Concentrator Solution, which is compatible with advanced control networks using standards such as PROFINET, PROFIBUS, EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, and EtherCAT, and is sure to arouse widespread interest at IMTS. To demonstrate NISE 300's capability, NEXCOM will have it installed with OPC Server software and configured with VIPA I/O, VIPA PLC, and Hilscher PROFINET, PROFIBUS, and EtherNet/IP modules. The solution provides an open architecture for cross-fieldbus communication between HMI and SCADA systems.

The fanless computer NISE 300 features Intel® Core™ i5-4402E processor and provides high expandability to support multiple fieldbus technologies and internet connectivity. Designed to fit in a 2U rackmount chassis, the NISE 300 is a high computing data server and communication gateway which provides cross-fieldbus communication, makes data-based decisions, and pushes factories down the path towards lean manufacturing.
