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.
Temperature is one of the major physical parameters that are monitored & regulated in a wide range of industries. The entire process of sensing, logging and analyzing it is mostly critical, and the maintenance of specific temperature ranges is vital to ensure proper operation. Temperature data is also an important indicator to determine the lifetime and health of equipment. Banner has effective solutions when it comes to monitoring & regulating temperatures, capable of registering even the slightest of fluctuations. Coupled with a wide & reliable portfolio of connectivity products, Banner can ensure that your temperature data is accurately recorded in the shortest time possible.
The worst method of operating machines is running them to a point of failure, carrying out repairs and then operating them again. This method, in addition to being overly expensive in terms of lost output is also hazardous to the workspace. Machine Monitoring can give your plant the capability to monitor, control & automate itself according to the changing requirements of the various systems. The concept is the epitome of modern industrial technology and utilized every available resource, hardware & software to ensure maximum uptime & minimum, yet scheduled maintenance.
Magnetic encoder technology is vastly used in heavy industries such as steel mills, ship drives, gas turbines, power stations, drilling rigs, and so on. The rugged landscape and threat of harsh elements require delivery of control signals over a long period of time in a reliable and efficient manner. While optical scanning encoder systems are always an option, the extreme conditions make it unsuitable for installation. Extremely confined spaces, large shaft diameters and no free shafts are just some of the reasons as to why Magnetic Encoder technology needs to be adopted.
Even though IoT based industrial automation is still in the works, manufacturing technologies have advanced to such a level that they have taken over the most repetitive tasks from human operators. A prime example is inventory management and component-level tracking system.
It is very likely that you encounter RFID tags everyday, even if you aren’t familiar with them. Radio-Frequency Identification tags (RFID) are small transponders attached or embedded in objects for identification. Common examples include clothing theft tags, EZ Passes, and implanted chips in pets.

Revolutionizing the Manufacturing Industry
Internet of Things (IoT) sits at the heart of Industry 4.0, the current trend of automation and data exchange that is hitting industries worldwide and becoming an essential component for cyber-physical systems. IoT holds great technical and economic worth as it promises to lower operational costs, increase durability of products and turn remote operation a reality. Experts have estimated that by 2025 there would be over 100 billion connected IoT devices, having a global impact of $11 trillion.
At the very core of IoT is the "Smart Factory", a term used to describe an industrial environment that fully utilizes the power of Industry 4.0 concepts.
Eliminate daily challenges with remote monitoring.
Remote monitoring of a machine or process using eWON products can provide tremendous benefits in several different ways. First, any brand of PLC and/or HMI can be accessed remotely without the need to gain VPN access at the machine location.
