Good connection: Digital process optimization
The more specific and diverse the applications and components become, the more complex the overall system can become. For this reason, approaches that take detailed account of the system with its interactions and synergy effects and always align it optimally are particularly in demand in the industrial environment. The basis for this is formed by intelligent sensors and analysis tools that monitor, harmonize and improve all process sequences as part of a higher-level system approach. Smart sensors such as SIMOTICS CONNECT 400 make it possible for the first time to analyze the connected electric motors at motor level. Modern inverters generally no longer require additional external sensor technology, as they are either equipped accordingly themselves or can evaluate and forward certain system parameters directly. At the digitization level, suitable tools such as SIDRIVE IQ Fleet or Analyze MyDrives then enable the evaluation of the data obtained, including visualizations, simulations and recommendations for action.
