By making full use of _connect.BRAIN you can integrate all of your Bizerba systems without needing to worry about your devices separating from the network and causing logistical confusion.

 

Common communication language


 

_connect.BRAIN implements a consistent communication language throughout. This means that you won't find yourself with the unfortunate issue of some of your machinery being unable to communicate with others, or having to brute force fixes in later patches. _connect.BRAIN pulls every piece of hardware together and makes communication as simple as possible.
