The use of IoT technologies in manufacturing is what simply constitutes Industrial IoT. The concept relies heavily on the use of big data technology and machine learning, making use of sensory & communication data to automate different processes. Without Industrial IoT monitoring, operations managers, plant managers and logistics coordinators throughout the manufacturing & distribution fields would lack the ability to make real-time decisions based on their assets’ health.
Safety is one of the core component upon which an industrial business depends. Apart from ensuring the protection of workforce, safe machines can bring positive changes in the operating efficiency and thus the competitiveness of a company. The entire process of guaranteeing maximum safety is a long & complex one, but is built upon improving functional safety. Devices ranging from control systems to protection apparatus must function correctly in order to ensure long-term continuity and safety for workers.
Built to supplement eWON Cosy VPN routers, Talk2M is the first industrial IoT connectivity service that offers cloud capabilities for location-independent operations. Over 100,000 eWON routers are already in service while over 70+ TB of data has been transferred over 8 million VPN connections.
For the past two years eWON has been rated as #1 by Control Design Readers in the Machine Remote Access Category, and now for the third time in a row, eWON has been recognized as the industry leader once again.
The manufacturing industry has been keen on getting on board with the Industry 4.0 trend, and while the entire idea is enticing, the details aren’t that simple. The Smart Factory promises intelligent decisions based on the data connected from various devices and assets. This is both a blessing and a curse since interconnectivity introduces greater complexity, need for greater management and foolproof network security requirements.
While the quest of next-generation industrial technology has increased the adoption of internet, serious steps weren’t taken for its revival until the start of this decade. Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, Smart Factory or Industry 4.0 are all connected with each other, with the prime goal of automation through interconnected industrial assets. Information will play a detrimental role in this revolution and therefore all challenges in implementing industrial ethernet should be properly addressed.
Bottle inspection may seem like a minuscule operation to many, but those who work in such industries know the importance of making sure quality is retained in every single unit. Before beverages can make their way to the consumer, they need to pass several vital exams to make sure they are free from any defect, such as torn labels, incorrect fill levels, etc.
Consistency has long been a sought-after feature in the industrial arena, primarily because a single product is installed in multiple locations. But things get even more complicated when an industry decides to procure several products from a particular electronics company. An entire engineers’ division would have to be set-apart for carrying out regular maintenance of each product in its own specified manner, resulting in unnecesarry use of money, time and manpower.
The Leuze BPS 300i range belongs to the second generation of bar code positioning systems, setting new standards both in terms of performance and handling. Using visible red laser light, the positioning system determines its position and speed with respect to the bar code tape. The tape itself is fixed along the travel path.
Modern industrial workspaces have dynamic requirements. Industrial networks in high-bay storage systems, gantry crane bridges and side tracking skates are plagued with interference over long distances. Currently available devices in the market require a considerable amount of effort for alignment and commissioning so that maximum continuity in the system can be insured.
