IIoT-enabled instrumentation at Hannover Messe 2018
Visitors to this year’s Hannover Messe (23–27 April 2018 in Hanover, Germany) can learn how to implement their Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) strategies, by seeing demonstrations of the use of smart sensors, solutions and services in specific process scenarios. In demonstrating applications are ready for the IIoT, Endress+Hauser will be showcasing its latest technology to unlock digitalisation’s new potential.
Parallel to the measurement values, Endress+Hauser field instruments now feature the connectivity required to transmit diagnostic information, such as the data generated by Heartbeat Technology, to the cloud. Communication is carried out via an integrated Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module or WirelessHART, thus eliminating the need to disrupt existing process control systems. For new installations, digital communication occurs directly via OPC-UA or an Industrial Ethernet technology such as Profinet or EtherNet/IP, then via an edge device to simplify cloud connectivity.
Apart from digitalisation, this year’s exhibit will also focus on new products and other innovations. Functional enhancements to Heartbeat Technology enable the concrete implementation of predictive maintenance. TrustSens, claimed to be the world’s first self-calibrating temperature sensor, offers users a high degree of process reliability and system availability due to automated, inline self-calibration. For users who need cost-effective measurement instruments for basic applications, there is also Picomag, a ‘pocket-sized’ flowmeter that features simple (Bluetooth) operation and system integration, such as with I/O-Link.
Endress+Hauser will be demonstrating its latest smart instrumentation solutions in hall 11, booth C43.
