Hardware
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
IoT power supplies include traditional, thin-film and printed batteries, energy harvesting modules, flexible photovoltaic panels and thermoelectric sources.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.

ECOsine Active Increased Reliability in the Paper Industry
ECOsine Active Increased Reliability in the Paper Industry
The paper and pulp industry is interlinking intelligent hi-tech machines to highly efficient production lines. Higher power DC and AC motor drives perform the automation tasks. Every kind of interference that negatively affects the reliability and safety of the installation may lead to production downtime and consequently to significant financial losses.AC and DC motor drives are so-called non-linear loads as they draw a nonsinusoidal current from the grid. Resulting harmonics of current and voltage can interfere with the operation of nearby consumers and overload the electrical infrastructure. In this particular application, the load cycles of the drives often caused interruptions in the production process because of disturbances coupling into the fieldbus system.
ECOsine Active Increased Grid Quality for Water Treatment facilities
ECOsine Active Increased Grid Quality for Water Treatment facilities
Central wastewater treatment facilities need to meet stringent requirements in order to operate reliably and in an environmentally compliant manner. The responsible persons have. in particular, to ensure the availability of the plant on a 24/7 schedule. Numerous variable speed drives fro pumps and fans generate a harmonic content of the current in the supply that can lead to thermal overlkad of the electrical infrastructure and to malfunctions of sensitive equipment. In this application example, the power factor correction equipment suffered from significant additional losses caused by the harmonics.
