How IIoT drives operational profitability improvements

IIoT gives manufacturers the ability to control their business performance in real-time and extend real-time control across their value chain. It is eliminating many of the constraints traditional technology has imposed on automation systems, particularly those that limit the ability to deliver operational profitability improvements. In a white paper Peter Martin of Schneider Electric explores […]

Profitable safety from IIoT modernisation

  Production plants face two major challenges: the increasing speed of business and integrating emerging technologies. Both play an important role in determining organisation competitiveness needed for survival. Moving to an IIoT-enabled control environment can rendering asset and operations in a reliable, efficient way whilst maintaining profitable safety. Plant automation must not only control a […]

Building IoT connectivity

With the focus of IoT and IIoT centred around manufacturing, it is easy to forget IoT connectivity in buildings. According to a Schneider Electric white paper, everyone has a stake in optimizing power system management of buildings. One reason is that power systems are more complex and sophisticated than ever. Failure could mean the difference […]

Benefits of open platform controller for automation

  There are times in machine control that a PLC cannot give you the performance you need for a special requirement. Rather than opt for a PC or special micro controller,  a C-Controller offers an interesting alternative. Mitsubishi Electric’s C-controller can be used stand-alone controlling the I/O or integrated within the Mitsubishi Electric iQ-R control […]

CC-Link’s OPC UA companion widening IIoT machine connectivity

Moreover The CC-Link Organisation (CLPA), and the OPC Foundation, announced a companion specification. Thus ensuring widening IIoT machine connectivity, it simplifies IIoT and Industry 4.0 implementations.   It does this by providing a unified interface between devices and IT at production sites. This simplifies the IIoT machine connectivity required for Smart Factories, and improves productivity […]
