Enhanced flexibility, higher speed and increased efficiency in the production process are the objectives pursued by forward-thinking companies. The vision of networking man and machine with other objects is the central pillar in this context and is quickly becoming a reality. 'Industrial Internet of Things' is the name the vision is known by.
Only through the use of cutting-edge “Test and measurement technology 4.0” can this vision of a networked production of the future become reality. Since the more complex and dynamic the processes in the manufacturing companies throughout the world, the more important becomes the availability of real-time data on critical parameters.
“Test and Measurement Technology 4.0”: What Does That Actually Mean?
- Sensors that allow for easy and fast integration with complex production systems - for example through availability of “electronic data sheets”
- Measuring amplifiers that can communicate in real time with sensors and today’s Industrial Internet systems
- Test and measurement software that bridges the gap between easiest possible handling and increasingly complex functionality
This page provides articles covering the topic of “networked production” and the use of suitable test and measuring equipment.
