Networked production and control processes in complex machine environments determine the industrial future and make Industry 4.0 possible in the first place. Smart Sensors already support dynamic, realtime-optimized, and self-organized industry processes. They record real operational statuses, turn these into digital data, and share them automatically with the process controller.
The added value of sensor communication depends significantly on the quality and stability of the delivered data. In order to create the best-possible basis for a future-ready automation system, SICK has equipped its Smart Sensors with four special properties: –
- Enhanced Sensing
- Efficient Communication
- Smart Task
