A deep dive into gigabit Ethernet

A deep dive into gigabit Ethernet
As we embark on the journey to Industry 4.0, it is becoming apparent that industry’s reluctance to move beyond 100Mbit Ethernet technology is a very real limiting factor. Here, CLPA-Europe General Manager John Browett argues that the transition to gigabit Ethernet networking technologies has to start now.

Industrial networks open-up to the future

Industrial networks open-up to the future
The factory of the future, taking into account Industry 4.0, is loaded with sensors and devices that record real-time processes and statuses across the factory floor. A fast, efficient and reliable industrial network is key to successfully sharing and utilising the data being generated. The network architecture should be designed as an interconnected platform, able to link all the nodes together and provide upstream and localised communication.

The relevance of SCADA in an Industry 4.0 environment

The relevance of SCADA in an Industry 4.0 environment
Industry 4.0 is not only revolutionising the way manufacturers operate. It is also transforming how Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems work and what we can expect from them. As a plant and process management tool SCADA has become the industry standard and its market is skyrocketing.

The robot arms that are getting everywhere

The robot arms that are getting everywhere
Recent developments are opening new opportunities and catapulting the industrial robot arm into a journey around the production environment. Robots undoubtably take the drudgery out of many repetitive manufacturing, packaging and processing tasks. Engineers are generally fascinated by the idea of improving production processes and keen to integrate robots, so the decision as to whether one is used or not boils down to economics; operators want to see a good case made for the return on investment before giving the green light.

Digital industries and new growth opportunities

Digital industries and new growth opportunities
Industrial markets are reactive, manual in operational transformation approaches. Digital transformation is poised to help organisations pre-empt scenarios, become more predictive and adaptive. At the same time, the transformation journey is unclear, complex and lacks clear ROI benefits. On the benefits side, organisations could become negative latency enterprises, which means customers will predict issues that will happen and prevent them from happening in the first place.

Innovating to harness growth generated by Manufacturing 4.0

Innovating to harness growth generated by Manufacturing 4.0
The growth of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and cloud have given a huge boost to the adoption of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology in Manufacturing 4.0. The interconnectedness of devices has resulted in massive volumes of RFID data that needs to be managed and analysed, prompting RFID manufacturers to develop high-memory tags that can hold more information, software platforms with a business intelligence layer, as well as cloud-based solutions.
