Pepperl+Fuchs recently launched a new portfolio of sensors for vibration monitoring. In this blog article, you will learn more about how vibration sensors work. Learn how you can use these sensors to monitor the condition of your machines and perform predictive maintenance.
With the ENA**TL-**IO-Link, Pepperl+Fuchs was one of the first manufacturers to launch an absolute rotary encoder with IO-Link interface. Learn how you can benefit from easy configuration and integration with this IO-Link rotary encoder, while at the same time monitoring the status of your plants in a cost-effective manner.
Ethernet Advanced Physical Layer, Ethernet-APL for short, is the physical layer for transmitting data into the field of process plants. Learn how parallel communication works today and what possible options there are to access data.
As Industry 4.0 grows, interest in radio-based sensors is also increasing. LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) is one technology that is becoming more and more popular in this context and is attracting the attention of industrial companies.
Industry 4.0 applications require sensors that are able to communicate with PLCs and higher-level SCADA or cloud systems. Pepperl+Fuchs IO-Link masters with MultiLink™ technology enable smarter factories.
4 Ways to Digitalize Your Factory Digitalization can be daunting. But with the right technologies, you can take the following steps to prepare your factory for Industry 4.0: 1) Connect Your Serial Devices to Ethernet If your factory uses barcode scanners, weight scales, RFID readers, or other equipment with a serial interface, a serial-to-Ethernet gateway will enable you to connect these devices to your system network. This gives you the ability to control, monitor, and communicate with the serial devices in your plant from a PLC or industrial PC. With web-based configuration, example programs, and windows-based management application, [...]
IO-Link master with OPC UA interface create a uniform basis for continuous information exchange from the field to the cloud. In this article, we will show you what applications are possible with the open data exchange standard.
