Robots in the factory of the future

Robots in the factory of the future
The International Federation of Robotics predicts that by 2020 more than 1.7 million industrial robots will be working in factories worldwide. Robots move continuously in multiple axes and must be supplied with data and energy by cables without interruption, so these cables need careful consideration. For applications where robot cables are subjected to torsional stress, the cables have to be designed and manufactured in a completely different way to cables for linear motion.

The IIoT journey starts with remote telemetry

The IIoT journey starts with remote telemetry
The first rule of Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) is that communications will fail. One challenge is rising volumes of data place increasing loads on both the main server and the communications networks connected to it. Here, Craig Abbot, Sales Manager for the Asia region at Ovarro, explains why Remote Telemetry Units (RTU) are vital for minimising congestion in intelligent power, utility, broadcast and transport applications.
