In the age of the Industrial IoT (IIoT) and the data-driven economy, Australian manufacturers face increasing global competition, shorter product cycles, and changing customer demands, placing pressure on manufacturing facilities to be digitally connected to improve flexibility, efficiency, and overall throughput.
Increasing cost-effectiveness of cloud technologies enables traditional manufacturers to adopt more advanced systems and move beyond traditional supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA). Traditional SCADA systems cannot communicate with operations and logistics. By embedding more intelligent controls, sensors, and process monitoring equipment alongside existing SCADA systems, manufacturers can improve quality in processes and adopt preventative maintenance and condition-based monitoring strategies to reduce overall maintenance costs and breakdowns, improving production output and business value.
Furthermore, by connecting other systems such as HVAC, UPS, lighting, environmental sensors, fire alarm systems, security and safety equipment, facilities management are able to support the smooth operation of factories and maximise resource efficiency, reduce costs and risk.
Industrial communication is the backbone for long-term success in manufacturing facilities. From controlling machines and monitoring production lines to coordinating entire production areas, Madison offers a solid backbone for the required exchange of data. Our comprehensive range of products include industrial wireless routers and mesh networks, fibre optic networks, Ethernet switches and converters, asset and process monitoring, IP video systems and thermal imaging cameras.
The technology in our range is built to last in tough factory and manufacturing environments. Our solutions from Cisco, Cybertec, MOBOTIX, Moxa, and Rajant provide systems integrators and manufacturers with the tools they need to keep their business-critical networks up and running.
