With the drive towards Industry 4.0 trends, the use of robotic, automation and control systems on the factory floor have become commonplace to increase efficiency, productivity and profitability. Recorded on Thursday 5th March 2020 sign up to watch on demand.

As the need for industrial robotic automation advances, sensing technology will continue to be the foundation for data collection that will help transform manufacturing floors into connected, cost effective, and reliable facilities.

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is an ecosystem of devices, embedded with electronics, actuators, sensors, and connectivity. It brings “dumb” devices to a smart level where they can participate in the digital world. Sensors and associated interconnects are critical parts of any IIoT implementation.

As the IIoT smart factory experience evolves, it will run on data provided by sensors. This article explores some of the sensors, connectors, antennas and lighting solutions to meet those requirements.

Join this webinar to:

  • Learn which new types of connectivity are vital to IIoT
  • Understand why sensors are vital to the next generation of data-driven technology
