Y Path - Collecting data for OT and IT with uncompromising efficiency
Analogue or via IO-Link – how to make your installations fit for the future
The ifm portfolio includes hardware, network technology as well as software for retrofitting and upgrading your technical systems. This allows you to make your data not only available in the controller, but also to transfer it end-to-end from the sensor to the IT level. At the IT level, the data can be processed and converted into reliable information that will serve you as a solid basis for decision-making.
Allowing for different types of data usage and on account of cyber security reasons, the Y path concept distinguishes between data for the OT world (the world of robots and PLCs) and for the IT world.
You will learn how to quickly and easily transfer information to your PLC.
Our speaker will outline the path of the data from the sensor to the IIoT world. moneo, ifm’s IIoT solution offers a condition monitoring system that allows you to introduce condition-based maintenance for your production. This way, the service life and reliability of your older installations can be increased.
