Digitization with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies is allowing industrial companies to play a major role in the new digital economy. In a world of fast-evolving demand requirements, the simplification of connectivity turns big data and information into a resource that can be put to work to create business improvements.

To learn more about how IIoT technology is growing the bottom line of industrial automation companies, read more from guest blogger Alain Dedieu, senior vice president of drives domain at Schneider Electric, a Belden partner. He’s responsible for building and deploying the worldwide strategy and roadmap for drives offerings where he is responsible for R&D and globally supports sales management. Here, he shares his perspective on how advancements in IIoT technology are proving to be effective in growing incremental revenue within industrial automation companies.

As companies compete to get their products to market faster and cheaper, they need simple solutions to enable near-immediate implementation. However, there’s no time or budget for special tools or expensive, highly-trained engineers and electricians.

In our previous blog on the “4 Benefits of Universal I/O Modules for Smart Factories,” we discussed how universal input/output (I/O) modules allow machine builders to do more with less. Today, we’re taking a closer look at I/O modules in smart factories, focusing on the added benefits that industrial distributed control units (DCUs) can offer.

In this blog, you’ll learn more about the functions of DCUs, how they’re improving upon I/O modules and what you need to start using them.

With the arrival of smart machines and the IIoT, the once compartmentalized worlds of IT and OT are beginning to follow similar standards to operate more efficiently. Due to this inevitable convergence of IT and OT and the greater demand for seamless communication across many connected devices, networks will require an increasing amount of bandwidth. Our conclusion? Full gigabit networks are the standard of the future.

This blog takes a closer look at the topology of a typical automotive manufacturing network, highlights each of its three network segments and looks at how the function of these segments must change as full gigabit networks become the new norm.

For passengers traveling by bus or coach, there are three standard expectations that need to be met: to be safe, to have reliable and punctual service and for the journey to be productive (have ample on-board WiFi, entertainment options and journey information).

Part of bringing passengers a safe and pleasant experience requires the use of things like regulation-approved seat fabric and Ethernet components, e.g., jacketed cabling. While these are not features that come to mind for travelers, they are critical considerations for network engineers. A full-fledged on-board Ethernet portfolio allows teams to enable their vehicles to safely and efficiently operate on today’s congested road networks. Check out how in this blog.

Part of the vision of the IIoT is that all relevant data will be available in real-time, leading to faster and smarter decisions. This in turn will lead to the design of more flexible and efficient processes. Many of these industrial processes will use specialized devices with sensing technology to perform automated tasks with efficiency and precision.

But with the increase in complexity of automated processes comes the opportunity for things to go wrong. As human presence in industrial settings becomes increasingly limited, the ability of these devices to provide diagnostics and immediate, accurate feedback has become critically important. The key to keeping such complex processes as simplified and as secure as possible is through secure remote access.

The competitive situation to produce higher quality goods is increasing in all kinds of industries, which also increases the need for greater efficiency in monitoring the production process. Performing diagnostic reviews and monitoring machines is known as “condition monitoring.” As technology continues to advance in this digital age, new applications and solutions can be utilized to improve this process and deliver higher machine uptime.

Wireless connectivity, therefore, has become a key technology enabler to change business models for machine builders. Predictive monitoring and less downtime are just some of the added benefits. Is wireless condition monitoring a good fit for your operation? We’ve outlined the process and provided some key considerations to make before deciding.
