Networked production and control processes in complex machine environments determine the industrial future and make Industry 4.0 possible in the first place. Smart Sensors already today support dynamic, real-time-optimized, and self-organized industry processes.
They record real operational statuses, turn these into digital data, and share them automatically with the process controller. The added value of sensor communication depends significantly on the quality and reliability of the delivered data.
Open standards: Multi-protocol communication interface allow universal operation with diverse, ethernet-based communication protocols
Web-based commissioning and diagnostics via integrated web server
Comprehensive access to actuator data (e.g. torque or power), via web connector for preventive maintenance or database interfacing and data analysis
Inbuilt smart sensors for capturing data
Flexible configuration according to requirement
Comprehensive condition monitoring for fast identification of critical conditions and comfortable analysis
Simple connection to higher-level data systems without additional hardware
Workpiece-dependent parameters setting guaranteeing quality results
Integrated control system with browser-based operating system allows for information sharing across multi vendor data systems
