Measurement Technology Meets the Industrial Internet of Things

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 measurement technology in IIoT 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.

“Measurement Technology in IIoT”: 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
  • 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 equipment.
