The seamless integration of data along the industrial value chains will gain more and more in importance, becoming a key criterion for the survival of developing / manufacturing companies. The Digital Factory Division aims to provide its customers with a comprehensive portfolio of hardware and software products which enable the comprehensive integration of data from development, production and suppliers. The complete digital representation of the entire physical value chain is our ultimate goal. We call the solution platform which we created for this purpose "Digital Enterprise". Under this term the DF product portfolio already smoothly connects major parts of the product and production life cycle today. Powerful Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software, for example, allows us to develop and optimize new products on an entirely virtual basis. In the real manufacturing world the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) concept, which has proven its worth for about 20 years now, ensures the efficient interoperability of all automation components. The TIA Portal, for example, already enables significant time and cost savings in engineering. In close cooperation with its partners within Siemens, and especially the Process Industries and Drives (PD) Division, the Digital Factory Division provides a large and unique portfolio of PLM software tools and industrial automation and drive technology tailored to meet individual customer requirements in various discrete industrial areas. In addition, DF customers can rely on the Division's commitment to the long-term development of their businesses. Protecting our customers' investments now and in the future – a particularly important consideration in the software business – is one of the major pillars of our business strategy. And when it comes to shaping the future of industry, DF is a driving and trendsetting force which joins with its partners worldwide in proven leading-edge technologies to increase productivity and protect a competitive edge.

SIMATIC IOT2000
SIMATIC IOT2000
The SIMATIC IOT2000 is the reliable open platform for collecting, processing and transferring data in the production environment. It is ideally suited as gateway between the cloud or the company IT level and production. The role as an interface can be used in both directions. It also transfers analyzed data from the cloud to the production control. This continuous data communication closes the control loop for optimization of production. The openness of the system in supporting numerous communication protocols and programming in high languages enables customized solutions.The use of machine and production data opens up many application options. The MindSphere Siemens Cloud for Industry offers industrial companies an open infrastructure based on SAP HANA and supports innovative digital services. SIMATIC IOT2000 can be the link between production and cloud-based data analysis in this case.A specific example is the preventive maintenance of machines. It is based on early detection of imminent signs of wear based on the evaluation of relevant indicators. Costly downtimes of production plants can be effectively minimized in this way. SIMATIC IOT2000 collects, saves and communicates relevant data to cloud-based analysis tools and thus enables preventive maintenance concepts – including those for existing plants.The implementation of individual customer requirements in production requires direct communication of the order data from the ERP system to production. This means customer-specific configuration or packaging requests can be automatically retrieved at the corresponding production locations. SIMATIC IOT2000 combines the tasks of interfacing to the ERP system and the corresponding communication of automation components. This accelerates the production process, minimizes errors and increases transparency of the order processing.SIMATIC IOT2040 from the SIMATIC IOT2000 product series at a glance:• Energy-saving Intel Quark processor and numerous interfaces: Intel Quark x1020 (+Secure Boot), 1 GB RAM, 2 Ethernet ports, 2 x RS232/485 interfaces, battery-backed RTC• Yocto Linux Support• Can be easily expanded with Arduino shields und miniPCIe cards• Various options for programming in high-level languages• Compact design and DIN rail mounting• Proven SIMATIC quality offers great ruggedness, reliability and longevity

European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI)
The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) is an independent, not-for-profit, standardization organization in the telecommunications industry (equipment makers and network operators) in Europe. ETSI produces globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, converged, broadcast and internet technologies.We have a special role in Europe. This includes supporting European regulations and legislation through the creation of Harmonised European Standards. Only standards developed by the three ESOs (CEN, CENELEC and ETSI) are recognized as European Standards (ENs).We produce different types of standards to meet the different needs of business and society. These needs include:- facilitating trade- enabling economies and efficiencies- achieving interoperability- enhancing consumer protection and confidenceThe progress of innovation requires a balance between collaboration and competition. Standards provide a foundation to achieve this balance and help enable new technologies. We therefore maintain close links with the R&D community and academia and we support the development of new technologies through a variety of mechanisms.
IO-Link
IO-Link
IO-Link is the first standardised IO technology worldwide (IEC 61131-9) for the communication with sensors and also actuators. The powerful point-to-point communication is based on the long established 3-wire sensor and actuator connection without additional requirements regarding the cable material. So, IO-Link is no fieldbus but the further development of the existing, tried-and-tested connection technology for sensors and actuators.
