The industrial internet of things (IIOT) refers to interconnected sensors, instruments, and other devices networked together with computers’ industrial applications, including manufacturing and energy management. This connectivity allows for data collection, exchange, and analysis, potentially facilitating improvements in productivity and efficiency as well as other economic benefits. The IIOT is an evolution of a distributed control system (DCS) that allows for a higher degree of automation by using cloud computing to refine and optimize the process controls.
Industry 4.0 will generate enormous amount of data. Gathering, analysing and processing such big data will generate new insights, support decision-making and create a competitive advantage.
MES production decision system can collect dynamic production process information, optimize production allocation, achieve advanced manufacturing and trace the production process of products. Furthermore, this production process information can be monitored remotely.
Sensors can be used to constantly monitor essential production line equipment and the production status and data can be recorded and transmitted in real-time to the cloud for predictive maintenance analysis to increase productivity and reduce maintenance costs.
M2M networks are very similar to LAN or WAN networks, but are exclusively used to allow machines, sensors, and controls, to communicate. These devices feed information they collect back to other devices in the network. This process allows a human (or an intelligent control unit) to assess what is going on across the whole network and issue appropriate instructions to member devices.
By implementing a single, centralized management solution across the organization, it's possible to see a single version of the truth across all operations — and this dynamically unlocks value by actively managing performance, thereby supporting business process change. And we're not just talking about internal performance here — additionally, a single-instance ERP system can significantly help in interfacing and integrating with external supplier or customers' systems in a more efficient way.
Purged – In purge panels or pressurized enclosures, positive pressure is maintained nside the enclosure to prevent entry of outside gases in the enclosure.,
Ex-Proof – Explosion Proof Panels is designed and built to operate in environments where concentrations of flammable gases, vapors, liquids or combustible particles pose risks of ignition and explosion.
Stainless Steel – Stainless Steel Panel is designed and built to operate in food industries to maintain food grade and high water contacted process industries.
Intrinsic Safe –These panels provide low energy power and signals through special intrinsically safe barriers into the hazardous area. Wiring must be routed in separate raceways and segregated from all power and other circuits. If the wiring is not designed correctly, a fire or explosion could occur.
Today more than ever, it is necessary to be able to carry out dimensional controls within the production cycle with automated measuring technology solutions next to or on the production line. The industry of tomorrow is moving toward automated quality control. In Industry 4.0, where the entire manufacturing process is connected, integrated, and automated, 3D scanning is better suited than probing to inspect parts as they are manufactured. Indeed, 3D scanners can quickly capture a lot of data, which are essential to the 4.0 manufacturing process.
