Some applications require data acquisition strategies without cloud connectivity, but they can still benefit from advanced analytics technology.
Software uses real-time data to draw real-world conclusions.
Embrace digital manufacturing and use data to provide customer value.
Ci Technologies (Charlotte, N.C.) announced three new software tools in its Plant2Business suite at NMW on Mar. 5. Plant2Net allows users to view plant information over the intranet/Internet with a browser such as Internet Explorer. Plant2Pocket delivers real-time, plant-floor information to mobile phones and personal data assistants.
Did you just see something extraordinary in the recorded data or was it a data anomaly in measurement, communications, or data aggregation? Data collection should help us learn, not confuse. Heed these five strategies for better industrial data.
With processing power increasing, controllers tucked in input/output (I/O) communication blocks make distributed controls easier than ever. With the increased controller capabilities, higher speed/more open communication protocols and more powerful, lower cost microprocessors, more distributed and autonomous systems seems likely.
Watlow's D4T with Intuition is a data logger that features field removable input/output (I/O) modules for design flexibility.
AutomationDirect’s Productivity2000 programmable controller line includes discrete and analog input and output modules.
Hardware — Data acquisition: The UC-8112-ME-T-LX is rugged, programmable 4G LTE Modbus data logger that maximizes flexibility and ease of deployment for Industrial IoT applications. This is a Control Engineering 2017 Engineers’ Choice Awards Winner.
Hardware — Handheld test, measurement, calibration: The AMS Trex Device Communicator is a safety-rated, ruggedized handheld communicator that enables users to work more efficiently in the field without the need for specialized tools. This is a Control Engineering 2017 Engineers’ Choice Awards Finalist.
