Our new ABLE add-on enables your team to turbocharge your batch time. By collecting edge data via PLC or manual entry from operators, you get real visibility into your batch cycle time. This tool will help you go from your perceived batch cycle time to understanding the actual cycle time, including where you can improve.

ABLE™ actively monitors your batch times and provides information in real time. The batch state utility has the following capabilities:
ABLE enables transforming IoT data into business systems (MES, SCADA, ERP apps, etc.).
A lightweight, root-cause IoT solution that leverages OPC UA technology and allows enterprises to simplify control architectures. With an OPC and cloud-based configuration solution, you don’t need a concentrator PLC. Connect to each PLC on the line directly and correlate the data across PLCs. Removing data storage and data transformations from PLCs allows enterprises to treat the PLC as an IoT device, simplifying their control architectures.
ABLE is ISA-95 compliant and works with the standard to allow it to determine state logic. ISA-95 is an standard from the International Society of Automation for developing an automated interface between enterprise and control systems.
ABLE is now also SAML 2.0 compliant, ensuring that access to business platforms is easy and more secure.
