What Sensors See in Industrial IoT
Petrina Zaraszczak, Director, Industrial Vertical Market, TE Connectivity, Sensor Solutions Business Unit
Whether its autonomous vehicles, intelligent homes and buildings or smart factories, the fundamental elements of connectivity – power, sensors and adaptive networks – are required for Industrial IoT applications. With opportunities like this prevalent, you never know where the next self-adjusting machine assembly may come from.
PriceWaterhouse Coopers calls sensors the digital backbone of the connected world. They are a crucial technology for connected networks, enabling machines and devices to share and leverage data, power, and signal across a digital ecosystem – such as between cars and roadway infrastructure, robots and factories, ultrasound machines and monitoring systems, and airplanes and airport systems.
Please join TE Connectivity (TE) for an insightful overview on how sensor are serving opportunities in a number of industries, with a particular focus on Industrial IoT and how sensors are enabling factories to become smarter.
Examples include prevention of catastrophic machine failures through predictive maintenance, assistance as quality assurance data points for statistical process control and environmental or HVAC monitoring within smart factories.
As is the case now, engineering sensors for the future will continue to include miniaturization, multi-functionality and packaging solutions that can withstand harsh environments. You’ll learn the importance of higher levels of integration by combining connectors and sensors, which are critical to solutions for dual-clutch transmissions, start-stop systems, xEV, HVAC, etc. and give suppliers a competitive advantage in providing highly engineered, integrated systems to best meet the cost and performance expectations of today’s users.
Wirelessly sensing and transmitting data is a growing trend now, as well, even in Industrial IoT. These sensors can be located in even more areas previously unobtainable and provide deeper data access. Today robotic arms can be powered with up to 100 watts from two centimeters away – enough distance to allow these machines to move in ways they could not before.
Join TE to hear how sensors are providing deeper insights into measuring physical properties, including pressure, temperature, humidity, position, and wireless, as well as many others – in industries as diverse as automotive, aerospace, industrial, consumer and medical.
