We are currently on the threshold of what is being referred to as the fourth industrial revolution. The terms explained at the end include "fourth industrial revolution" or "industry 4.0", which refer to the integration of Internet technology into production processes, as well as developments such as "Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS)" and the "Internet of Things".
In cyber-physical systems, each work piece has a digital production memory that defines what it is and what will happen to it.
As an "Internet of Things" initiative, Weidmüller, together with its research partners, has developed a solution for the self-optimisation of stamping-bending machines, in which irregularities in the production process are automatically corrected.
The goal: resource-saving production through minimal material losses and an increase in quality through optimised process parameters. Self-optimisation also enables further miniaturisation of the Weidmüller products and initialises the realisation of completely new product innovations, with the best possible quality.
Thanks to integrated ring redundancy technology with a recovery time of ≤ 20 ms, this equipment increases the reliability and availability of industrial networks. The Gigabit variants enable the use in networks with a high volume of communication, and optional SFP transceivers offer a high degree of flexibility when connecting to fibre-optic networks.
Gigabit Ethernet switches in the Premium Line product family by Weidmüller are designed as full-level managed switches. Variants are available with Gigabit uplink ports and Fast Ethernet ports as well as Full Gigabit variants with up to 9 Gigabit Ethernet ports.
