In the near future, billions of pieces of equipment will be connected to one another and massive amounts of data will pouring in. Advanced algorithms, high-powered computing, better connectivity and cloud storage all facilitate the emergence of smart systems. Knowing how to leverage the respective opportunities, however, requires a unique set of skills. Siemens has the engineering, domain and digital know-how to generate performance improvements across the entire value chain, from design to production and operations to maintenance. Digital simulation technology accelerates the plant design, the installation and commissioning as well as the entire product design and production planning process. Multiple components in systems and plants can be intelligently networked to communicate with each other and exchange real-time data. Machine learning makes complex systems more efficient without human intervention. The intelligent analysis of operational data helps identify patterns and predict potential downtimes. Minimum downtimes boost reliability thanks to lifecycle services.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects accessed through the Internet—essentially a "Connected Everything Platform." These objects contain embedded technology to interact with internal states or the external environment. When objects can sense and communicate, it changes how and where decisions are made, and who makes them. IoT is connecting new places—such as manufacturing floors, energy grids, healthcare facilities, and transportation systems—to the Internet. When an object can represent itself digitally, it can be controlled from anywhere. This connectivity means more data, gathered from more places, with more ways to: increase efficiency, innovate in product development, increase asset utilization, enhance the customer experience, streamline the supply chain, and improve safety and security. Hitachi Consulting helps apply IoT solutions to drive business value, ultimately allowing companies to be IoT innovators and become an "Enterprise of Things." Companies can learn more about Hitachi Consulting's products, solutions and expertise and how they leverage the diverse product portfolio of Hitachi to help enterprises quickly get value out of IoT capabilities.
Vibration Sensors With the proper sensor to supply critical operating information, a machine operates in a safer condition for both the machine as well as the personnel operating the machine. Various machine operating conditions concerning temperature extremes, magnetic fields, vibration range, frequency range, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electrostatic discharge (ESD) conditions and the required signal quality necessitate the need for a variety of sensors. Sensor Bearing Units SKF sensor bearing units are used to monitor accurately the status of rotating or linear components and are: compact, robust and reliable, and simple and ready-to-mount. Sensor-integrated solutions engineered by SKF have been well proven in a variety of industrial and automotive applications, such as electric motors, electric vehicles, road rollers, tractors, forklifts and conveyors. Typical uses include: motor management, steering, speed and position sensing, and measurement of angular position. Recent innovations from SKF now enable bearings to communicate their operating conditions in real time, with integrated intelligence including wireless sensors, data acquisition electronics and self-powered solutions. This technology, called SKF Insight, enables operators to see how dynamic operating conditions are affecting bearing health and machine condition in real time. Operators can use this information to adjust operating conditions or make automated interventions, such as lubrication. This can help to prevent bearing damage before it occurs, effectively extending the life of the bearing. Ultimately, this means better maintenance planning and helps to avoid costly unplanned stoppages.
T-Mobile Austria is not only one of the leading providers of telecommunications, TV and entertainment in Austria. T-Mobile is also an expert partner for worldwide IoT connectivity.
