Two trends that are creating a lot of buzz today are about to unleash a profound change throughout global industry: Industry 4.0, the German based approach for smart manufacturing, and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) with a focus on connected devices and analytics. These trends and the underlying technologies that support them are impacting a broad range of industrial sectors – everything from building automation, transportation, medical, military, security and retail. In this whitepaper, however, the focus is on how industrial automation and machinery will be impacted. Download the white paper.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is not about ripping out current automation systems in order to replace them with new ones. The potential lies in the ability to link automation systems with enterprise planning, scheduling and product lifecycle systems. This paper analyses how the linkage can be implemented across the complete enterprise value chain in order to enable greater business control. Experts also offer perspectives regarding key aspects of IIoT deployment. Download the white paper.
Wireless technology is increasingly used in machine safety applications. New solutions introduce mobility and offer higher levels of flexibility and safety for plant floor operators. This ebook explores how modern wireless implementations can increase user safety and mobility, reduce installation costs, and boost productivity. Download the ebook.
Traditionally, the functions of automated industry and control have been kept separate. But advanced safety technology embedded within automation components is not just a means to ensure operator safety, it's also a way to improve performance. This eBook explores how embedded safety drives and Ethernet-networked drives lower hardware costs, increase operator safety and reduce the amount of "full shutdown" downtime, which adds up to more productivity.
