For quick-commissioning and cost-effectiveness, Siemens has been offering Sinamics V20 Drive Solution that serves as a basic performance converter for industrial applications. The design & implementation is already highly flexible, and is highlighted by its push-through installation, Modbus RTU terminals, and power-saving modes.
Today, machines have to be manufactured in the most cost-effective manner possible, while offering greater levels of productivity. In order to maintain the sophisticated functionality as well as keep the financial aspect in check, a modular approach needs to be followed, one that’s offered by the Sinamics S120 Drive System.
Siemens has displayed a great deal of attention towards the prospects of digitalization, and the positive impact it would have on the industrial sector, from shortened engineering times to greater throughput. Siemens Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) Portal was introduced in 2010 to empower users to perform automation tasks quickly and with ease of use. The software product is designed to deliver a high degree of efficiency for both new & experienced users, introducing standardized concepts for controllers, HMIs and drives. The TIA Portal facilitates the entire spectrum of digitized automation including integrated engineering, digital planning and virtual operation. With the new version of the TIA portal v15, Siemens has solidified its position as an industry leader in the field of digitalization, and expanded its reach to standardization and greater engineering efficiency.
The need for security isn’t that apparent until part of your network or privacy is compromised. Network data security should always be a top priority when considering connectivity within a plant or to multiple sites. Security is highly important in the 21st century industrial sector as corporate espionage for sensitive inside information is becoming increasingly common.
Digitization is affecting all walks of life, from the way we travel to the way we spend our money to the way we gain knowledge. People are becoming more empowered and expect greater quality, something that’s driving competition to great heights. The pace of innovation and the ability to disrupt the market is ramping up, with each company looking for ways to improve their productivity while alleviating their costs.
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.
