Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol and Callisto Integration announce strategic partnership

December 5, 2019 —Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol, an industrial networking and sensor connectivity manufacturer, and Callisto Integration, a manufacturing technology Systems Integrator, have announced a strategic partnership that will enable manufacturing companies to deploy solutions that deliver visibility and control of their manufacturing operations.

In order to improve factory floor productivity and output, and reduce downtime, manufacturers require real-time visibility of their manufacturing equipment, people and processes. Obtaining this visibility requires technology to capture information from the shop floor, and solutions to get that data into the hands of production managers. Often the manufacturing equipment is old or lacking in technology, so retrofitting or upgrading sensors to collect key data is the fastest and most cost-effective solution. However, installing new hardware achieves nothing unless management can visualize and analyze the various sets of data coming from the production line in meaningful ways, and make decisions to control and optimize production accordingly.

Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol and Callisto are working together to solve these challenges with complete IoT solutions for manufacturers. Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol has a pedigree in industrial device and sensor connectivity providing edge network OPC UA and MQTT sensor data solutions. Callisto is a Systems Integrator of hardware, software, systems and solutions to manufacturing companies. Both companies also partner with the providers of IoT and manufacturing automation platforms, resulting in end-to-end solutions, from factory floor hardware through to visualization and control. Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol and Callisto work with each manufacturing customer to deliver initial solutions that have tangible results, and then collect more data from more sources, provide more insight and analysis, roll out to more manufacturing lines and plants, and provide a roadmap to a full manufacturing execution system for true automation.

Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol is producing Edge gateway technology based on IO-Link, digital and analog sensor solutions to provide direct integration to multiple software systems, cloud-based or on-premises.
