Shop Floor Automations (SFA) has re-branded its Hardware line of products as the Connect Series and is in the testing stages for its latest release, the WiFi USB Connect, a wireless USB solution for the shop floor. The device emulates a USB stick, allowing the user to share data between a PC and a machine with a USB port. The data can be stored on the remote PC or locally in the device’s 128 MB of memory.

The device can be set to rename, move or delete a file after transferring. Data sources include network shares, FTP, email, SMB, cloud services and more. The machine will be able to “see” the files as soon as they are added to a shared folder, and the wireless connection to this shared folder will eliminate the need for cabling for control.
