In this presentation Pepperl+Fuchs presents Logistics-specific benefits of IIoT technologies available for Autonomous Lift-trucks and AGV’s, zero-pressure accumulation systems and distribution center-wide predictive maintenance and efficiency tracking systems. IIoT technology is available for WMS, MES and Enterprise-wide control software to receive real-time data from edge smart sensors in each area of a logistics operation irrespective of the control architecture. Through remote-IIoT smart sensor connectivity, software and data-analytic dashboards can immediately receive data independent of a PLC or IPC system utilizing an OPC UA, MQTT or REST architecture.
As digitalization in manufacturing increases, IIoT requirements quickly move into the supply chain for production component scheduling, automated pick and place technology, autonomous loading and unloading systems and AGV work-order processing. An IIoT-enabled manufacturing operation is only as good as the system which processes the flow of material goods to-and-from the production line.
