Rockwell Automation Revolutionizes Edge Computing for Logix Controllers with New Embedded Edge Compute

Rockwell Automation, Inc., one of the world’s largest companies dedicated to industrial automation and digital transformation, is proud to announce the release of its Embedded Edge Compute module (EEC), setting a new standard for edge computing capabilities. Designed to empower businesses and developers with improved processing power and versatility, this module opens a world of possibilities for edge computing applications and enables information technology (IT)/operational technology (OT) convergence at the Logix level for more direct control monitoring.

Key features and benefits of the Embedded Edge Compute module include:

  • High-performance Computing: Powered by a high-performance processor and advanced computing architecture, the EEC module delivers exceptional speed and efficiency, enabling businesses to process complex tasks and data-intensive applications with ease.
  • Compact Form Factor: The compact design of the Embedded Edge Compute module allows for easy integration into space-constrained environments. Its small size and low power consumption make it ideal for edge devices, enabling users to bring powerful computing capabilities closer to the data source without compromising on performance.
  • Scalability and Flexibility: The EEC module offers a modular design and ability to host FactoryTalk®Optix™ and FactoryTalk® Remote Access™, which allows for seamless scalability, enabling users to easily adapt to changing computing demands.
  • Enhanced Connectivity: The EEC module provides a wide range of connectivity options, facilitating comprehensive data exchange and enabling advanced IoT and automation applications.

“Our mission with the Embedded Edge Compute Module is to provide a cutting-edge solution that empowers our customers to embrace the full potential of edge computing while maintaining compatibility and ease of use,” said Stefano Schiavella, product manager, Rockwell Automation. “We believe EEC will revolutionize the way Logix Controllers interact with modern technologies and unlock new opportunities for efficiency and productivity.”
