Many companies today have a basic knowledge of IoT applications, but sometimes they lack the know-how to realise them on their own. Although data is collected and stored in a first step, it is often not used effectively. However, the collected information only achieves a concrete, measurable benefit through a logical link and evaluation.
The possibilities of the IIoT can be used very versatile and individually, for example for a locationindependent machine commissioning, the improvement of the overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) or the generation of automated reports of the energy consumption. Therefore, it is important to define a specific goal in advance. Weidmüller supports industrial companies in identifying individual potentials for industrial IoT applications, developing needs-based solutions and successfully integrating them into existing structures.
Data-based industrial IoT services essentially consist of five core functionalities: data acquisition, preprocessing, communication and analysis as well as operator interaction. Based on the automation portfolio u-mation, Weidmüller has developed a comprehensive range of digital services over the last few years, which map these functions from the sensor to the cloud. The Detmold-based company group provides its customers with its own services such as the Weidmüller Monitoring System (WMS) for wind power, but also with solutions that can be further developed by the user. For example, the automated machine learning software from the field of Industrial Analytics enables machine operators to develop and optimize AI-based analysis models with their own domain knowledge.
