Kuebler Encoders and Slip Rings Provide Advanced Monitoring and Diagnostics in Industry 4.0 Applications
In this Kuebler white paper, explore how encoders and slip rings provide essential sensory functions in Industry 4.0 applications
The fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0, is a prominent topic in the technological world today. Going beyond the use of computerized systems and automation for industrial operations (or Industry 3.0), Industry 4.0 merges the IT and industrial worlds through the use of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) for autonomous operation.
Kuebler is an industry-leading manufacturer of encoders and slip rings for a host of industrial 4.0 applications. Compared to the current, device-oriented industrial automation, Industry 4.0 offers a more robust "system" view. This new technology enables manufacturer-independent access to device data, standardized services, and a simplified device administration.
In this Kuebler white paper, explore how encoders and slip rings provide essential sensory functions in Industry 4.0 applications, such as recording the speed and position of machines, and monitoring power, signals, and data transmission.
