Why Industrial Internet (IIoT):
We believe that "intelligent" machines can capture and communicate real-time data more accurately and continuously than humans. These data enable companies to improve their inefficiencies, save time and money, and make their businesses smarter. In manufacturing industry, IIoT has great potential in quality control, sustainable and green development, supply chain traceability and overall supply chain efficiency. In an industrial environment, IIoT is the key to predictable maintenance, enhanced on-site services, energy management and asset tracking.
How IIoT works
IIoT is a network of devices connected by communication technology, which is used to establish a system for monitoring, collecting, exchanging and analyzing data, providing valuable data to enable industrial companies to make more sophisticated business decisions faster.
Industrial Internet of Things (IOT) systems include:
Intelligent assets -- applications, controllers, sensors, and security components -- can sense, communicate, and store information about themselves.
Data communication infrastructure, such as cloud services.
Application program, which generates business information from raw data and analyses it.
Edge devices (including sensors, drivers and other endpoints) and smart assets transmit information directly to the data communication infrastructure. For example, it is converted into operational information for the operation of a machine. This information can then be used for predictive maintenance and for optimizing business processes.
Benefits of IIoT
Predictive maintenance of enterprises. This includes the use of real-time data generated from IIoT systems to predict the organization of mechanical defects. For example, before they occur, companies can take action to solve these problems before parts fail or machines fail.
Improve on-site service. IIoT technology can help on-site service technicians identify potential problems before the customer equipment becomes a major problem, so that technicians can solve problems before the customer really breaks down.
Asset tracking. Suppliers, manufacturers and customers can use asset management systems to track the location, status and status of products throughout the supply chain. If the goods are damaged or in danger of damage, the system will immediately alert the administrators to take immediate or preventive action to remedy them.
Improve customer satisfaction. When products are connected to the Internet, manufacturers can capture and analyze data about how customers use their products, enable manufacturers and product designers to tailor future Internet of Things devices, and build more customer-centric product roadmaps.
Improve facility management. Due to the vulnerability of manufacturing equipment to wear and tear, and certain conditions in the factory, sensors can monitor vibration, temperature and other factors that may lead to operating conditions below optimal conditions.
IIoT and Internet of Things (IOT)
Although things on the Internet of Things and the Industrial Internet share many common technologies, including cloud platforms, sensors, connectivity, machine-to-machine communication and data analysis, they are used for different purposes. Many applications connect devices to multiple vertical domains, including agriculture, health care, businesses, consumers and utilities, as well as governments and cities. Many devices include smart appliances, fitness belts and other applications. The general application scenarios of these Internet of Things devices are not alarms in emergencies.
But IIoT connects machinery and equipment in industries such as oil and gas, utilities and manufacturing. IIoT requires deployment of system failures and downtime that can lead to high-risk situations, such as life-threatening situations. IIoT applications also focus more on improving efficiency and health or security than on a large number of common user-centric Internet of Things applications.
IIoT applications and examples
ABB, a power company, is using connection sensors to monitor its robots'maintenance needs for repairs before components fail. Airbus, a commercial jet maker, has also launched what it calls a "factory of the future" digital manufacturing plan to streamline operations and improve productivity. Airbus has integrated sensors into workshop machines and tools and equipped employees with wearable technologies, such as industrial smart glasses, to reduce errors and enhance workplace safety. Another robot manufacturer, FANUC, is using sensors inside its robots and data analysis based on cloud computing to predict components that are about to fail in its robots. By doing so, factory managers can arrange maintenance in a convenient time, reduce costs and avoid possible downtime. Austrian automaker Magna Steyr is using IIoT to track its assets, including tools and vehicle parts, and to automatically order more shares if necessary. The company also tests "smart packaging" using Bluetooth technology to track parts in warehouses.
