To simplify the development of complex machines, Bosch Rexroth is integrating safety technology into the Sercos automation
network, ensuring safe communication from the control unit to the drive without any additional wiring.
Certainly, its very efficient approach to provide control and saftey over the same ethernet network. Manufacturing plants can save up alot of energy by doing so and also increase there production by making the whole system more decenteralized.
The Industrial Internet of Things may be going off the deep end in connecting everything on the plant floor. Some machines, bearings, or conveyors simply donít need to be monitored -- even if they can be.
Wind turbines already are imposing structures that stretch high into the sky, but an engineering graduate student at the University of Notre Dame wants to make them even taller to reduce energy costs and improve efficiency.
