SMART SENSORS - 2

SMART SENSORS FOR EFFICIENT MACHINE COMMUNICATION 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 support dynamic, realtime-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 stability of the delivered data. In order to create the best-possible basis for a...

Smart Sensors FOUR DIMENSIONS OF SMART SENSOR TECHNOLOGY FOUR DIMENSIONS OF SMART SENSOR TECHNOLOGY: DIAGNOSTICS With the Diagnostics functions, you always know the condition of your process and every single sensor. They comprise automated sensor self-monitoring or process parameter monitoring for preventative device and system maintenance. Smart Sensors will even send a notification independently if safe operation is at risk. Thanks to predictive maintenance, flexible, needs-based maintenance schedules can be created, helping reduce service costs. If problems should arise, however, the...

Smart Sensors FOUR DIMENSIONS OF SMART SENSOR TECHNOLOGY FOUR DIMENSIONS OF SMART SENSOR TECHNOLOGY: SMART TASKS In these times of “big data”, it is important not to lose sight of the big picture. For that reason, Smart Tasks processes the diverse sensor signals for detection and measurement, linking them to signals from an external sensor if necessary. Only the process information that is actually necessary is generated – in line with the task configured in the system. This saves time during data evaluation in the control, accelerates machine processes, and makes high-performance,...
