The future of industrial production has come to be known as the Industrial Internet, Industry 4.0, or cyber-physical systems. The opportunity to use a multitude of data to produce and supply goods in a more efficient and flexible way, while also saving resources and achieving better quality, ultimately depends on the reliability of the data input for the process chain – and the sensors that record real-time situations and convert these into digital signals. SICK started focusing its corporate claim on the future as early as 2004: “Sensor Intelligence.” epitomizes our clear focus on sensor technology as a data provider for the intelligent factory, making it the most fundamental module for providing the highest possible levels of transparency in the supply chain.

European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI)
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.
