The fourth era of revolution (industry 4.0) is all about connectivity trends, advanced material, processing technology, service orientation, and collaboration in advanced manufacturing networks. It presents a unique level of control and coordination over the whole value chain of the products. Internet of things (IoT) and machine to machine communication (M2M) are merged to improve communication and automation. It creates a new set of design principles for effective and computerised control of the manufacturing process which includes interconnection, real time data, technical assistance and decentralisation decisions.

Digital Controlled Power

Today’s power supplies for Tomorrow’s demand include Digital interfacing options featuring PMBus, UART, RS485, RS232, GUI and other connection protocols, not to forget models which can be accessed online with their own IP address over Power Pro Coms Module (PPCM) for checking, controlling and changing settings via Smartphone App.

Digital Interfacing allows end users to remotely manipulate, control and read all of a power supplies key parameters (not just voltage, current and temperature) which provides integrators with more flexibility than ever for different load types.

Not only that, system operators can monitor the PSU’s lifetime, performance and stability which in turn enables customers to avoid costly and often mission critical, unacceptable downtime, with preventative maintenance before a failure event.



Embedded Products and Industrial Monitors

Monitors with integrated touchscreens are a powerful and economical way to display complex information to a user in an easily readable and accessible format. Coupled with the right embedded SBC and software support, the system can gain its own intelligence to become IoT and AI ready for Industry 4.0.

 These products create a foundation for an Industry 4.0 friendly environment, facilitating the gathering and analysis of data across machines. Enabling more efficient processes to deliver greater quality at a lower cost in an accelerated method. 

Shorten your development cycles, reduce design efforts, expedite your time to market and attain a greater return on investment with our comprehensive line card of IoT & AI services.
