A photoelectric sensor is a position sensing device that uses a modulated light beam to detect its target. The absence or presence of the target is dependent on the reflection of the light beam.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has taken the manufacturing world by storm. By tapping into the already existing streams of data, IoT based software & hardware technologies have defined the term “automation” in a futuristic manner. For manufacturers especially, the implications are grand. It is estimated that by 2025, IoT could unleash as much as $2.31 trillion in global economic value.
But don’t let sheer numbers get to your head. Migrating from a conventional system to a IoT based one is easier said than done. Makings sure you’re checking all the necessary boxes is vital for your company’s survival.
