Company Description
With over 50 years of sensor experience, Balluff GmbH is a world leader and one of the most efficient manufacturers of sensor technology with company office in Neuhausen a.d.F. directly at Stuttgart. The company offers sophisticated technology and very modern electronics application-specific customer solutions and an individual consultation and first-class service.

NXP is a global semiconductor company enabling the Internet of Tomorrow. They develop solutions to provide secure, efficient connections, safer and greener automobiles, and add intelligence to everyday items. As a leader in processing and sensing solutions, they are driving a more innovative and connected world for the future. Freescale was acquired by NXP Semiconductors in December 2015.

Our brand Optek Technology designs and manufactures innovative optoelectronic solutions for sensing and illumination applications in the industrial, medical, aerospace/defence, and transportation markets. We specialise in developing highly reliable custom optical sensors and assemblies designed to meet critical customer-specific applications. Equipped to meet the needs of our worldwide customers, we offer standard and custom optoelectronic sensors and switches, magnetic hall-effect and high-reliability sensors, fiber optic components, and VCSELs. With over 40 years of mounting, bonding, and packaging experience, our engineering teams have the skills and expertise to deliver optoelectronic solutions for the most demanding environments.
Rockwell is a provider of industrial automation power, control and information solutions that helps manufacturers achieve a competitive advantage for their businesses. Rockwell operates in two segments: Architecture & Software, which deals in hardware, software and communication components of the organization, and Controls Products & Solutions that handles a portfolio of intelligent motor control and industrial control products, application expertise and project management capabilities.
As a specialist in sensor, fieldbus, and connectivity - as well as interface technology, Human-Machine Interfaces (HMI), and RFID systems - Turck offers efficient solutions for factory and process automation applications. With our state-of-the-art production facilities in Germany, Switzerland, the USA, Mexico, and China, our family-owned company is able to react quickly and flexibly to the demands of local markets. Turck’s products and automation solutions increase the availability and efficiency of your systems, whether they are applied in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, transport and handling, food and packaging, or in-machine and plant construction. Through intensive dialog with customers, we are able to pair industry-specific knowledge with electronics development and production of the highest level to ensure optimal solutions for all of your automation challenges.
With specialized sales and engineering teams for machine automation, process control, instrumentation, data communication and fluid power technologies, Cross has the technical expertise to solve industries'​ most challenging automation applications.
IoT Solutions
The competitive advantage of Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is at your fingertips. The technology that enables these advantages is here now and well proven. Intelligent, connected systems provide scalability to seamlessly grow with your manufacturing needs. Are you ready to capitalize? Our commitment is to the development and manufacture of sensors, identification systems and connectivity solutions for every area of industrial automation. We already offer the necessary technologies for implementing Industry 4.0 and IIoT solutions. • Integration in successive stages as budget and time allow • Prioritize projects based on need with scalable implemention • Capitalize on existing control architectures to quickly realize Industry 4.0 and IIoT

NXP sees the Internet of Things (IoT) as billions of intelligent connections that will encompass every aspect of our lives and make our world smarter, greener and safer. They believe that the biggest opportunities within the IoT will be in the transformational shift from the computing nexus to highly intelligent nodes - when intelligence massively scales, and the nodes have the power to learn, adapt and communicate. NXP are a market leader in microcontrollers with a broad portfolio of ARM-based MCUs with a low power, high security and small footprint – all ideal for IoT. They are a leader in IoT infrastructure with embedded processors for wired and wireless applications. From the end node to the cloud, NXP provides an unrivaled portfolio for supporting the incredible growth of smart, connected solutions including microcontrollers and microprocessors, security, connectivity, analog and sensors, and RF.

Smart Connected Operations is a future looking vision that describes what the factory or production line of the future will look like. It will involve Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) enabled MOM applications integrated with IIoT enabled assets and IIoT enabled business systems. It is an elemental part of creating the Smart Connected Enterprise and is often where companies have breaks in the strands of the digital thread. In moving towards this vision, both solution providers and manufacturing organizations are going to have to up the game when it comes to investing in IIoT. These investments will include the creation of new organizations that bring together IT, OT, and business leaders, new technologies that enable connectivity, cloud, big data analytics, and the development of new applications, along with the foresight to see that small pilot projects today could transform entire industries tomorrow.
