Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 for the processing plants

Digitalization

Abstract: Industry 4.0, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and comparable technologies require that the data are provided in a digital format. To prepare new application for this is a simple task but how does it work for existing plants, especially when 4 mA … 20 mA technology is used?

This presentation will show how existing plants can be enabled for Industry 4.0. Additionally it will be shown how such data can be made available outside of the Asset Management System.

The amount of data to be transmitted from instruments such as positioners or mass flow meters can be very huge. Fieldbus (FOUNDATIONTM fieldbus, PROFIBUS PA) can become a bottleneck due to its limited bandwidth. As a future outlook an initiative to will be introduced which has to Increase the transmission speed in the first step to 10 Mbit/s via a standard fieldbus cable type A.

Last but not least maintenance people would like to have access to all of this data from the field. How this can be realized using portable wireless devices is also a part of this session.
