Today’s automation systems are expected to deliver an increasing amount of data about every aspect of their operation and performance. The Internet of Things (IoT) provides, in principle, an attractive way of meeting these requirements, but how can IoT concepts be implemented easily, reliably and cost-effectively in the real world?
Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) was developed for one reason only. It was meant to close the last big gap in a TCP/IP oriented network world – the gap between classic IT and sensor technology, which is becoming more important.
Clive Humphrey, Product Manager - Interconnection from WAGO, highlights why Panel Builders and OEMs should consider screwless cage technology terminal blocks to save time, cost and increase reliability, allowing them to take advantage of Industry 4.0 and the evolving Industrial Internet of Things.
The phrase “up-time” is an oft-repeated phrase for IT professionals, reflecting the fact that a key measure of their success is service availability. Modern climate control systems support “up-time” but, to understand why, you first need to consider the impact of poor climate control to decide which equipment to employ to take an installation to the next level.
You may have not yet heard of Single Pair Ethernet, or SPE for short, however, the new industrial data transmission system is already on its way to becoming a megatrend in the industry.
