Digitalization - the transformation of processes, products and services by digital technologies - is in full swing. The goal is to simplify people's lives, to create new things and to protect the environment by linking systems, machines, people and products. Smart Factory production is more efficient while consuming less resources in parallel. One integral element is the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) linking Operation Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT).
Another integral part of the Smart Factory are intelligent sensors reflecting a precise image of machine reality. This information ensures the desired product quality and is a prerequisite for high overall plant productivity paired with flexibility.
A key to digitally networked factories are the Connected Smart Sensor Solutions from Baumer.
