Think Again: Remote monitoring, sensors, analytics and real-time intelligence is helping those who manufacture, use, and repair motors and attached critical assets to avoid downtime with prescriptive maintenance technologies, says EASA and Plant Engineering research.
The key to selecting an industrial drive is to understand how that drive has been designed and constructed to operate in conjunction with other machines and control systems.
Collect usable data as the first step toward effective analysis.
West Virginia University has received a $1 million award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to prepare students for cybersecurity jobs with a project called "ACCESS," which cultivates cybersecurity experts through scholarships and education.
Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) can help maintenance engineers in process industries such as the food industry repair industry and reduce potential downtime.
A lower self-discharge rate leads to longer operating life for batteries and a lower cost of ownership for remote wireless devices.
Users need to be able to capture more precise insights at the edge and make real-time intelligent decisions in the cloud to make the Internet of Things (IoT) valuable.
Risk assessment is one key – and don’t forget the data.
While Industrie 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is enhancing the digital and connectivity capabilities of industrial control systems (ICSs) it has also opened the floodgates to serious cybersecurity risks.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) can help companies realize a greater return on investment (ROI) for plant-floor motors, but companies need to know what they seek and want.
