LEARNING THEATER PRESENTATION
Find Your First (or Next!) IIoT Win with IO-Link
Manufacturers looking to improve maintenance reliability, reduce downtime and enhance factory performance are finding real value by implementing Industrial IoT solutions in their facilities & processes. IO-Link is a universal, smart & easy to implement technology being explosively adopted in manufacturing automation and is a strong enabler of IIoT & Industry 4.0 applications. IO-Link is covered under IEC 61131-9 & IO-Link products are offered by all major automation suppliers across a wide set of factory automation IIoT applications. Major reasons like reduced machine build costs & increased overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) are cited as driving factors in their decisions. We will explore, with multiple real world case studies, just how easy IO-Link is to integrate & support, how the universal standard works, and how smart devices can enable & scale your next IIoT, Industry 4.0 or Smart Factory project.
