SENSORS & SENSING SYSTEMS ADVERTISEMENT FEATURE


the accuracy and consistence required, despite the difficulties of specific application conditions. With an entire range of sensing


technology available, from capacitive, inductive and photoelectric sensors, to laser ranging, encoding and full 2D and 3D camera imaging and even RFID, a modern sensor manufacturer like SICK is able to match customer needs for technical performance and best application value.


GETTING SMART So, the Smart Factory of the future will depend on Smart Sensors. The data generated by sensors is the basis for intelligent machine control and automation but, up until very recently, the legacy of a pyramidal configuration for central processing control has slowed progress towards fully integrated factory systems, the dream for Industry 4.0. Smart Sensors are now freeing factory


network distributed control systems by removing time-consuming communication bottlenecks between simple sensors and the PLCs. Smart Sensors perform complex process functions locally moving them away from the PLC to the sensor itself. Real time events can be locally


processed, without waiting for the raw data to be uploaded to the central PLC


program, processed and information extracted before action. Speed restrictions due to heavily-loaded networks are avoided and demands on the central computing functions are massively reduced. The information provided by sensors


about pressure, temperature, flow, end position, speed, output state and so on, all help to make automated factory systems faster and more effective. Sometimes a standard sensor with IO-Link will be all that is needed. But now, a range of advanced function blocks can be built into sensors of all types to provide a powerful new set of tools for the engineer. With routine raw data processing tasks


performed in real time by Smart Sensors at machine level around the factory,


essential time is saved. The processed data and resulting actions can be made available for recording, safety, traceability and quality control purposes to be overseen at the central system level. Used to its full potential, Industry 4.0


will deliver maximum efficiency while enabling production versatility down to batch sizes of one unit, thus fulfilling the ultimate dream of fully integrated automation.
