If you can’t attend in person, simply participate online and take a virtual tour of our 3D showroom, attend lectures and presentations, and talk to our experts.


Reliable data processing and analysis in the field

One platform for all purposes

Make your applications more flexible: SCALANCE LPE collects and analyzes data locally and actively contributes to applications in your automation system. The platform offers a compact design as well as high performance, robustness, and future viability.

SCALANCE LPE is a small and robust local processing engine with a powerful CPU. It is flexibly usable – for example, for edge applications that allow you to significantly boost the efficiency of your plants.


SCALANCE LPE collects data directly at the process, pre-processes it, and makes it available to other systems. Possible applications are e.g. condition monitoring of multiple devices for the purpose of predictive maintenance or anomaly detection in communications networks. Thanks to its powerful CPU, the processing engine handles several applications simultaneously. Its Linux-based operating system allows you to implement your own self-developed apps as well as applications available on the market (such as Docker©) with one device. One use case is the Zero Trust solution that enables secure access to the industrial network from the office or via mobile.

Zero Trust use case

Local processing engine in use

Use SCALANCE LPE to solve many potential challenges. SCALANCE LPE incorporates Zero Trust, a security principle known from IT networks. Participating devices, users, and software resources need to be identified and authorized before getting access to systems and applications of the industrial network. Access is strictly limited to the current request. With SCALANCE LPE and Zero Trust, the “Defense in Depth” concept can be enriched by a new option for secure remote access – e.g., from the office IT.
