Process orientated drives for IIoT

  By enhancing traditional technologies with more intelligence, connected solutions are transforming the workplace. Digitisation of automation devices like VSDs ensures they can output data in a computer recognisable form. Hence, the resulting connected products that enable digitisation needed for IIoT. Reflecting this trend is the Altivar Process Orientated Drives provide more data for advanced […]

Linking asset maintenance and energy costs

Linking asset maintenance and energy costs   A recent white paper, Schneider Electric looks the relationship between asset maintenance and energy costs in pumping. Assets such as pumps need maintaining on an ongoing basis, and maintenance costs are 25% of TCO. Thus maintenance practices warrant examination of their contribution to energy-influenced savings. In pumping installations, […]

Embedded safety over Ethernet

As safety technology advances, it is increasingly popular to embed the functions in to automation equipment like variable speed drives. According to Schneider Electric, as Industrial Ethernet becomes the network of choice, then both will start to merge. Hence, the resulting integration of embedded safety over Ethernet will extend the benefits of both. Modern industrial […]

Developing empowerment in IIoT

    IIoT is changing manufacturing, and as its adoption accelerates, it will bring new challenges for producers. But even with all the benefits of connectivity it provides, most industrial operations risk performing sub-optimally. Significantly, it will dramatically impact on the new generation of engineers and workers that control it. Schneider Electric argues that the […]
