Our lives are touched daily by the Internet. It widens our horizons and improves our capabilities by connecting us to a wider community and their collective knowledge. A similar revolution in industry is connecting intelligent machines and the collective data generated from a growing number of electronic sensors. We are ‘seeing, hearing, and feeling’ our industrial processes like never before and this empowers the decisions we make to optimize performance. This revolution allows us to operate machines more safely, with greater efficiency, and with lower environmental impact, not just individually, but as complete systems, working in harmony to enhance power and productivity for a better world. For over a decade ABB has been working to develop and enhance process control systems, communications solutions, sensors and software for the Internet of Things, Services and People (IoTSP). These technologies enable their customers in industries, utilities and infrastructure to analyze their data more intelligently, optimize their operations, boost their productivity, and their flexibility. ABB is advancing the IoTSP by helping their customers develop their existing technologies, while keeping sight of our enduring commitment to safety, reliability, cyber security and Data Privacy.
The recent Internet of Things (IoT) momentum has been enabled through a broad adherence to open standards (such as Ethernet) and by technology breakthroughs in the area of Data Aggregation middleware. Schneider Electric delivers open, connected solutions at each IoT-driven intelligent ecosystem layer: the connected, decentralised device layer (sensors, drives, meters, PLCs, controls, switchgear), the platform layer (cloud services, middleware, physical infrastructure architectures), and the On-Premise central control layer (operational intelligence, remote monitoring, predictive analysis, simulation, cloud analytics). Schneider Electric tools help data centre, plant, and smart grid operators to become more efficient by sorting through mountains of data (eliminating false alarms or nuisance alarms) and by generating dashboards that consolidate the information coming in from all parts of the extended network. Instead of gridlock, a smooth flow of information is created which allows for greater operational intelligence and higher quality decisions. IoT is broadening the scope of where both power protection and security are needed, as entire chains of communication can be disrupted by the breakdown of a single device. Schneider Electric leverages the power of IoT and big data to maximize safety and reliability through high-precision automation and control, training and simulation, the generation of ‘what if’ scenarios, robust remote management, Predictive Maintenance, managed services, and advanced analytics. Power protection and cyber security considerations are imbedded into our product designs in order to strengthen overall network reliability.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the futuristic vision of everyday objects having network connectivity—and it's already happening: our phone communicates with our watch and our refrigerator, our car communicates with our address book. Emerson's Pervasive Sensing solutions are our industry's Internet of Things, and only Emerson has the wireless expertise and capabilities to make it happen: both the cutting-edge technology and the process domain expertise critical to analyzing data and recommending actions. The expanded view offered by a Pervasive Sensing strategy enables companies to gain actionable insights into areas previously unreachable or manually managed. A Pervasive Sensing strategy enables manufacturers to address these key areas with more and better data, strategic analyses and actionable information. When companies expand their strategy with more sensors, they easily take control of their plant and experience a considerable business impact.
INVT Industrial Internet of Things System adopts four-layer architecture design: equipment sensing layer, communication acquisition layer, platform support layer and application layer, which is easy to expand and dock a variety of applications to provide industry users with the Internet of Things solution.
