The way of the future is to make traditional workflows in production and logistics more dynamic, allowing flexibility to market changes, optimize capacity utilization or manufacture smaller productions. SIEMENS SIMATIC RTLS can navigate material flows, control mobile robots, monitor component use, and fully document the final product assembly.
The SIMATIC RTLS locating platform achieves this accurately and reliably to be able to focus and respond autonomously, they need to know what’s where, and when. It locates objects with accuracy measured in centimeters and makes the positioning details available to higher-level systems in real time, and it is extremely easy to install.
SIMATIC RTLS represents a major step toward the digital enterprise. The system can be adapted to growing requirements. The system adapts to growing requirements. Further components can be added at any time without a lot of additional configuration effort. The following components. all of which you can find in the Industry Mall, cover the entire locating infrastructure.
Gateways are fixed reference points in the local infrastructure for real-time locating with an accuracy measured in centimeters. They record the transponder signals and give them a fixed position stamp. The real-time positioning data is bundled and transmitted to the locating server.
Transponders are fitted to workpieces, robots, vehicles, etc., and transmit a wireless signal at defined intervals. They can also be equipped with data interfaces and transmit location details directly to the local control system or make them accessible for higher-level systems.
The Locating Manager is a software system that calculates the real-time position of the individual transponders and passes the details on to the higher-level systems via defined interfaces.
