This is one of the particular advantages of BSS – thanks to its open IO-Link interface it allows the manufacturer-independent use of IO-Link devices. Hence, the user-friendly software is an innovative tool to exploit the full IO-Link device potential for smart manufacturing. BSS is based on future-proof software architecture and utilizes elements of the Microsoft Azure Cloud. Thanks to cloud access, the latest software version and functionalities are made available to users at all times.

The Industrie 4.0 Innovation Award is launched and granted in 2022 for the seventh time as a joint effort by VDE Verlag GmbH, ZVEI, and the Standardization Council Industrie 4.0.
