"Industry 4.0" stands for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and is often defined as the "merging" of innovative information / communication technology with the manufacturing industry or as the "Internet of Things and Services" in the industrial sector.
This will provide a new level of organization and control of the entire value chain throughout the product life cycle. The life cycle is then defined as everything from the idea, development, adaptation, production and delivery of the product to the end customer, to recycling and associated services. The key is access to real-time information at all stages.
By connecting people, objects and systems, networks are created that are dynamic, real-time optimized and self-organizing, and that can be optimized in terms of cost, availability and use of resources.
HYDAC provides sensors that provide real-time state information as well as analytics and advice for optimizing your process systems.
Sensors med IO-Link are one of the steps towards more accessible information.
