“The rise of locating technologies for indoor and outdoor tracking of assets on the shopfloor and in the warehouse makes PLCnext Control hardware an obvious first choice to run a locating middleware like our DeepHub on. The PLCnext Store is an ideal place to reach our target audience and be part of that ecosystem.”
