Dafang Industrial Cloud – Collaborative management
Smart Connected Operations is a future looking vision that describes what the factory or production line of the future will look like. It will involve Industrial Internet of Things
(IIoT) enabled MOM applications integrated with IIoT enabled assets and IIoT enabled business systems. It is an elemental part of creating the Smart Connected Enterprise and is often where companies have breaks in the strands of the digital thread.
In moving towards this vision, both solution providers and manufacturing organizations are going to have to up the game when it comes to investing in IIoT. These investments will include the creation of new organizations that bring together IT, OT, and business leaders, new technologies that enable connectivity, cloud, big data analytics, and the development of new applications, along with the foresight to see that small pilot projects today could transform entire industries tomorrow.

They cooperate closely with our partners to help provide complete solutions for a wide array of applications across a diverse range of industries. To realize our corporate vision of Enabling an Intelligent Planet, Advantech will continue collaborating and Partnering for Smart City & IoT Solutions.
With the proper sensor to supply critical operating information, a machine operates in a safer condition for both the machine as well as the personnel operating the machine.
Various machine operating conditions concerning temperature extremes, magnetic fields, vibration range, frequency range, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electrostatic discharge (ESD) conditions and the required signal quality necessitate the need for a variety of sensors.
Sensor Bearing Units
SKF sensor bearing units are used to monitor accurately the status of rotating or linear components and are: compact, robust and reliable, and simple and ready-to-mount.
Sensor-integrated solutions engineered by SKF have been well proven in a variety of industrial and automotive applications, such as electric motors, electric vehicles, road rollers, tractors, forklifts and conveyors.
Typical uses include: motor management, steering, speed and position sensing, and measurement of angular position.
Recent innovations from SKF now enable bearings to communicate their operating conditions in real time, with integrated intelligence including wireless sensors, data acquisition electronics and self-powered solutions.
This technology, called SKF Insight, enables operators to see how dynamic operating conditions are affecting bearing health and machine condition in real time. Operators can use this information to adjust operating conditions or make automated interventions, such as lubrication. This can help to prevent bearing damage before it occurs, effectively extending the life of the bearing. Ultimately, this means better maintenance planning and helps to avoid costly unplanned stoppages.
The Internet of Things
(IoT) and advanced Data Science
are rewriting the rules of competition. The advantage goes to organizations that can convert petabytes of freshly arrived and historical data to predictions – more quickly and more accurately than their competitors. Payoffs include better product and service design, promotion, and pricing; optimized supply chains that avoid delays and increase output; reduced churn; higher average revenue per customer; and Predictive Maintenance
that avoids downtime for vehicle fleets and manufacturing systems while lowering service costs.
To make sense of and act on the unprecedented volume, velocity, and variety of data in real time, companies are applying the sciences of big data, advanced analytics, Machine Learning
, and Cloud Computing
. Products themselves are being redesigned to accommodate connectivity and low-cost sensors, creating a market opportunity for adaptive systems, a new generation of smart applications, and a renaissance of business process reengineering. The new IT paradigm will reshape the value chain by transforming product design, marketing, manufacturing, and after-sale services.
C3 IoT offers a new generation of smart, real-time applications, overcoming the development challenges that have blocked companies from realizing the potential of the Internet of Things
. Proven in more than 20 enterprise-scale production environments, the C3 IoT Platform is PaaS for the design, development, deployment, and operation of next-generation IoT applications and business processes.
Liebherr creates innovative IoT solutions that are extendable and plug-and-play. Liebherr has developed the fleet management platform LiDAT for their construction machines. Due to customer demand, these platforms are often extended to include competitors’ products but with limited data coverage and functionality. For the household appliance industry, Liebherr has a novel refrigeration solution: a plug-and-play device that turns almost any of the company's fridges into a smart fridge.
What's especially brilliant about the SmartDevice is not so much its capabilities, but Liebherr's overall approach to smart home technology. Unlike smart home setups that force users to buy pricey hardware that can't be upgraded and may not even be necessary, SmartDevice gives consumers the option of choosing nearly any Liebherr fridge and adding connectivity only if and when they feel comfortable doing so.
