IIC Smart Manufacturing Connectivity for Brown-field Sensors
IIC Smart Manufacturing Connectivity for Brown-field Sensors
The discrete manufacturing domain is characterized by a strictly hierarchical structure of the automation systems, commonly referred to as the automation pyramid. Data acquired by a sensor typically flows through an IO-module into a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) which manages the local real-time control system. As all process data are concentrated in the PLC, re-programming the PLC and thus, implementing interfaces to access these data appear to be the natural choice to transfer them to the IT system. However, for brownfield installations this choice has proven impracticable for the following two reasons:In brownfield facilities, PLC usually operate within a once-specified environment and are rarely re-programmed. That is why the active staff is often not familiar with the code and lacks of the competence to modify the existing implementation in a reasonable amount of time.Furthermore, for cost reasons, any PLC was selected to exactly match the requirements of the environment within which it was intended to operate. That is why it cannot be assumed that a PLC will be able to support additional tasks such as communicating data through additional interfaces.

IIC x IoT ONE IIoT Spotlight Podcast EP039: How to ensure connectivity for brownfield sensors - An Interview with Michael Hilgner of TE Connectivity
Wednesday, Oct 10, 2018

*This episode of the Industrial IoT Spotlight Podcast is sponsored by the Industrial Internet Consortium

We discuss the IIC test bed for smart manufacturing connectivity for brownfield sensors.

What are the key challenges to implementing IoT sensors and technologies in brownfield environments? How can we ensure that all technologies and business processes have interoperability with each other? How will communication standards evolve in the industry in the future?

Michael Hilgner of TE Connectivity explains to us the challenges and best practices of implementing connected sensors in a brownfield environment.

Dr. Michael Hilgner has engaged himself in communication infrastructure and high-frequency components design in diverse roles throughout his career. In his current role as Manager Consortia & Standards at TE Connectivity’s Industrial Business Unit, he provides his experience to international standardization activities and industrial user groups in the areas of industrial networks, fieldbuses and cabling systems. In addition to his engagement at IIC where he leads the Smart Manufacturing Connectivity for Brown-field Sensors Testbed, Michael contributes to several Industrie 4.0 working groups to detail I4.0 requirements and technologies for active and passive infrastructure components.

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.
