Technical innovation in the field of Industry 4.0

What does the factory of the future look like? How will flexible and intelligent production be realized? Sensors are the eyes and ears of automation technology and provide a wide variety of information concerning the current condition of a machine or system, e.g., about position, fill level, material in the machine, etc. The diverseness of the information reflects the huge number of sources used. Ultimately, however, the focus in the case of Industry 4.0 is: How is it possible to access this data and information from different sources, to link it in a meaningful way, to aggregate it and to make it available globally? With our sensors, we make a decisive contribution to such a networked and intelligent production environment in the spirit of Industry 4.0.
