VSD functionality for IIoT

 

The Internet of things is about connecting everyday equipment through the Internet. It allows people and devices to send and receive information (data) directly and to process instructions. It has many implications for producers, consumers alike. Manufacturing and commerce have similar requirements, although there are other factors to address. More demanding requirements for control, interoperability, safety, time sensitivity and so on have led to development of IIoT.

According to Schneider Electric, industry is facing more market volitivity, new technology capabilities, and increased pressure on performance. Responding to this digitalization will create new opportunities for growth. That 90% of all data in the world has been generated over the past 2 years reflects this trend.

Connecting smart devices with built-in intelligence aids the collection of operating data for processing using edge or cloud computing. People and machines are gaining access to more and more intelligence, demanding solutions that connect to that intelligence and help them make sense and use of it.  That is provided the smart devices are available.

Schneider Electric says industry is facing more market volitivity, and increased pressure on performance. But in response to this, digitalization is creating new opportunities for growth. Intelligence from connected smart devices aids the collection of operating data from processes. As business accesses to more data, it is demanding solutions that convert it to useful information. Moreover, 90% of all data in the world has been generated over the past 2 years.

VSD functionality for IIoT

The development of Altivar process provides VSDs functionality for IIoT in response to this new trend. Its embedded web server interface delivers process data to supports energy management functions. They log and time-stamp application data without needing sensors. By providing real-time intelligence they aid business optimisation, improving services and boosting efficiencies.

Further embedded functionality includes PLC control, power measurement and energy dashboard. They improve energy efficiency, allowing users to optimize motors loads and avoid penalties. Furthermore, traceability allows data logging and recording to manage information on drive events. Event tracking is available local to or remote from the drive.

Energy management

Altivar Process drives ensures that applications are always performing at optimal efficiency. Real-time data on asset performance allows the system to detect efficiency drift and react immediately. Then informing users in real time is by a customizable alarm management system. Altivar Process also enables predictive maintenance thorough condition monitoring, remote diagnostics, and troubleshooting.

Altivar Process ensures that applications are always performing at optimal efficiency. They deliver enriched data on asset performance in real time. Energy management and traceability contribute increases in productivity by up to 20%. Innovative energy management and regenerated systems avoid costly and energy wasting braking systems.

Finally, Altivar ATV600 and ATV 900 Process VSD functionality for IIoT enables effective predictive maintenance thorough condition monitoring, remote diagnostics, and troubleshooting.
