In our previous whitepaper, ‘Make Industry 4.0 work for you’, we pulled out some of the key themes that came out of the research supplied by our partner Kinneir Dufort around Variable Speed Drive and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Our focus was on how you could use Industry 4.0 (known as the IIoT in the Americas) as a stepping stone to grow your business. We looked at aspects such as basic machine connectivity, the benefits of being IIoT ready and cloud vs. remote data logging.
We felt there was more information to uncover around Variable Speed Drive and the Industrial Internet of Things. That’s why we’ve produced a second whitepaper, highlighting the top six productivity benefits OEMs can offer their customers, these include:
One of the defining factors that is enabling smart factories to thrive is the development of intelligent motor control systems. Variable Speed Drives (VSDs) now come with embedded logic in the form of an onboard PLC. That means it’s possible not only to monitor drives over a network, but actually execute programs too.
As you’ll see in the research, intelligent variable speed drives provide a cost effective way of bringing the latest high performance technology into your business. Even if you don’t use the PLC aspect of the drive, it won’t cost you anything extra.
And our team of experts are available to support you throughout your development process. That way you’ll gain order winning technology, helping to build your business for the future.
