How to select an industrial pump control systems for TCO

Environmental concerns and optimising energy costs are strong drivers for an end-user’s economic policy. As a consequence, Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is an important factor when making investment decisions. System design is key to TCO and influences any purchasing decision, such as the design of a pump control system.  What is Total Cost of […]

What is meant by Industrial Edge computing?

Whether you call it Industry 4.0, IIoT or digitisation, manufacturing gets better results by acquiring and analysing production process data. Machines in industrial environments like industrial PCs, PLCs, and HMIs have some data handling capability, but not enough to cope with smart machines. Industrial Edge computing addresses this. By digitising their production processes, users develop vast […]

Industrial Data Science brings Big Data closer

Big Data is one of the potential dividends of the Industrial Internet of Things IIoT, but collecting it is only the start. According to a white paper from Omron Automation, it only becomes of value when extracted and presented in the right way. Without using Industrial Data Science, important insights for transforming production data remain […]

How using smart motor controllers improves manufacturing productivity

The old adage “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it” is no longer relevant to 21st-century manufacturing. Producers face a never-ending challenge of continuous productivity improvement. Moreover, in these difficult times, improvement is further complicated by pressure to minimise capital expenditure (CAPEX). Despite these contradictory goals, Schneider Electric argues that emerging technologies can help. New generations of […]

How new connected control devices drive workplace efficiencies.

Machine builder design efficiencies increase when core machine components are easy to select and simple to wire and install. By integrating new generation connected control devices to the internet delivers workplace efficiencies and access to new machine information. New technologies like Schneider Electric TeSys island have an online configuration tool  built around the concept of […]
