PROFINET– what do you really know about it? Perhaps just that it’s a protocol– maybe even that it’s a standard Ethernet protocol. Let’s clear up any questions or uncertainties you have about what PROFINET is and why it has one of the largest installed bases of any Industrial Ethernet protocols.

The Key to Unlocking Your IIoT Data

The Key to Unlocking Your IIoT Data

It seems that IIoT is disrupting the industrial sector in the best way by guaranteeing these improvements, but the fact is that most companies are not correctly or effectively implementing IIoT. Because IIoT gathers huge amounts of quantitative, largely unstructured data through sensors, your current analytics system is likely to be overwhelmed. Luckily, you just need one key to unlock the treasures that IIoT data has to offer: artificial intelligence (AI).

What Is IIoT?

What Is IIoT?

IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) is how we connect our machines to an infrastructure instead of connecting machines to applications. IIoT has helped manufacturers make such amazing strides in increasing quality control, traceability, sustainability and overall efficiency that it’s even been called our next Industrial Revolution.
