The IIoT or Industry 4.0 is part of a larger concept known as the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT is a network of intelligent computers, devices, and objects that collect and share huge amounts of data. The collected data is sent to a central Cloud-based service where it is aggregated with other data and then shared with end users in a helpful way.
After several years already working through Industry 4,0, Factory of the Future, Smart Factory, Digitalization, you name it, have taught us that the added value we could offer to our customer, to you, is to assist in building flexible enough machines.
IO-Link compitable industrial sensors and switches installed in the factory automation space can provide essential machine feedback. They can monitor On/Off status, confirm operation within an optimal range, or measure real time operation of pressure or flow.
