4 Ways to Digitalize Your Factory

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, [...]

Four Scenarios for Using IO-Link Masters with OPC UA Interface

OPC UA creates 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.

8 Advantages of IO-Link

IO-Link: 8 Advantages Simply Explained The IO-Link communication protocol has become a recognized standard in almost every branch of industry. The microcontrollers used make the sensors even more intelligent and can store parameter settings and provide additional information about device status and signal quality. This makes it easy to replace defective sensors since stored settings can be automatically transferred to new sensors during operation. IO-Link can be integrated into any network independently of the fieldbus via point-to-point connection and 3-wire standard cabling. An IO-Link master can also be used to operate both IO-Link and conventional switching signals with [...]
