The demand for digital solutions in industry is continuously increasing. What companies need are faster and more flexible solutions that offer clear efficiency effects. Added value is provided by things that work today and solve problems technically, economically and easily. At the “Hanover Trade Fair” (April 12-16, 2021), Rittal, Eplan and German Edge Cloud – three members of the Friedhelm Loh Group – presented concrete, practical solutions for the industrial transformation.

Four highlights

Firstly, Rittal showcased new end-to-end engineering and automation solutions for machining enclosures with Eplan and the AX and KX enclosure platform for even more efficient panel building switchgear manufacturing.

Secondly, Eplan presented the first insights into its new platform, which heralds in a new era in engineering and advanced cloud services under Eplan ePulse.

Thirdly, German Edge Cloud exhibited its all-embracing Oncite solution, a rapidly deployable and data-secure edge and cloud solution for digitising industrial manufacturing processes. IBM has now expanded it to include its IBM Cloud Pak solution to integrate the appliance more flexibly into every manufacturing management level. This solution is already in use at Rittal’s Smart Factory in Haiger.

And fourthly, Rittal showed its new RiMatrix Next Generation IT infrastructure platform, a modular system for flexible, secure, and rapid data centre deployment – from edge to hyperscale.
Visitors could find out about these breakthroughs and other new developments directly on the Hanover Trade Fair portal through a total of 20 live streamings and presentations, including a Phoenix Contact paper on “Automation in the production environment”.
