CC-Link IE, the ‘Missing Link’ in Industry 4.0 | ManufacturingTomorrow

[apss-share]
Much of the promise of Industry 4.0 is based upon seamless interconnectivity between production machines, enterprise systems and sources of data in the wider world. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a key foundation of that interconnectivity, providing low cost, easily integrated sensors, actuators and systems. Much of the promise of Industry 4.0 is based upon seamless interconnectivity between production machines, enterprise systems and sources of data in the wider world. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a key foundation of that interconnectivity, providing low cost, easily integrated sensors, actuators and systems. Yet in most production environments today, true integration is rarely realized. Production networks need to communicate a wide variety of different data types, from critical real-time machine control signals to high volumes of recorded data from quality control systems and machine monitoring technologies. The differing technical requirements of these diverse data types can lead many organizations
