Targeted transparency for the efficient control of production processes

 
For the “smart factory” of tomorrow, Weidmüller presents a solution that converts analogue machine data to digital data using the network-compatible ACT20C signal converter and the Power Monitor. The centralised storage and processing of complex data is particularly easy using standardised OPC UA Services.
User-oriented visualisations via web applications provide relevant information to any location. This targeted transparency of critical parameters makes both manual and automated optimisation of the manufacturing process considerably simpler.

For the innovative production processes of the future to be successful, all the components used have to meet certain criteria. Learn about the solutions Weidmüller is using to steer production into the future:

 

Electronic components with Ethernet interface and autonomous intelligence

By integrating Ethernet interfaces with autonomous intelligence, we are opening up the possibility of not only relaying local information – from sensors and actuators, for example – but also of directly processing this information on-site. Thus, local activities can be triggered and even process decisions can be made almost in real time.

Optimised security in connecting communication networks

Communication security requirements involve specific requirements as regards the infrastructure components used. Our Industrial Ethernet routers, for example, ensure that different communication networks are perfectly harmonised in compliance with the most stringent security standards.

Precisely measuring and visualising electrical characteristics
 Power Monitor

The ability to determine electrical characteristics is the cornerstone of all power management systems. After all, to optimise the energy consumption of machines and systems, you first have to record and analyse data in detail. Our POWER MONITOR measures and records all the relevant electrical characteristics of machines and systems.
