Automation 2022: IIoT & Industry 4.0
Today’s factories already have the equipment and tools they need to operate, but operating at peak efficiency is another matter entirely. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all that is becoming available to upgrade tools and components, gather and analyze data, and otherwise optimize a facility. But the best plan is the one that you will see through to the end, and that is why this edition of AUTOMATION 2022 focuses on seemingly small changes that can lead to big results.
Look inside for real-life examples and case studies that exemplify what a simple change can do. Combine existing SCADA systems with IIoT devices to empower newly smart manufacturing. Use Edge I/O with MQTT to create a flexible and low-cost solution for water monitoring. See how a change of batteries can enable smaller, less expensive wireless devices. You’ll find a plethora of useful technologies that take less time and money than a lot of other paths along the journey to becoming a smarter factory.
