Category: Industry 4.0
The comprehensive digitalization of industrial production is in full swing. The associated demands on electronic components necessitate the production of high-performance, efficient, high-quality and smart components.
What challenges does Industry 4.0 currently face? What requirements must connectors, sensors and measurement technology meet in the field of industrial automation? How does artificial intelligence influence Industry 4.0? And: What is the Industrial Internet of Things and digital twins all about?
In the online magazine “Electronic competence” we answer the burning questions of the industry and provide insights into the development of highly complex automation and communication systems.
Over the last few decades, digitalization has revolutionized companies, industries and our everyday lives. Reliable connections - or more precisely, the tools responsible for them, such as connectors - have become central elements of electronic processes. They are not only the invisible framework that links systems and services together, but also enable innovation and increased efficiency in almost every area. In this article, Bürklin Elektronik takes a closer look at modern connector technologies and examines their importance in future developments.
In recent years, the Internet of Things (IoT) has become a buzzword that is increasingly present in many industries and areas of our daily lives. But what exactly is behind this term? And why are connectors indispensable components in the age of networking? We shed some light on the subject!
In a world that seems to be spinning faster and faster and where technological progress has become the norm, industrial automation presents itself as an indispensable part of modern manufacturing processes. It enables companies to increase productivity, reduce costs and ensure consistent quality. But along with these benefits come challenges, especially when it comes to safety. Because no matter how advanced the technology, the safety of people and equipment must always come first. What needs to be considered in this area? We clarify! Doch mit diesen Vorteilen gehen auch Herausforderungen einher, insbesondere in Bezug auf die Sicherheit. Denn egal, wie fortgeschritten die Technologie auch sein mag – die Sicherheit von Menschen und Anlagen muss immer an erster Stelle stehen. Was es in diesem Bereich zu beachten gilt? Wir klären auf!
For years, industrial automation has established itself as a decisive factor in the production landscape. Quality and standardization are the key drivers here. They form the foundation of successful and efficient automation. The following article highlights their central role and how the use of special products can ensure an increase in quality and compliance with standards.
Modern manufacturing processes are characterized by numerous innovations and must meet increasingly complex requirements - for example, in terms of connectivity, digitization and sustainability. Industrial automation, i.e. the autonomous control of physical processes by intelligent systems and machines, has established itself as an efficient solution in this respect. High-quality accessories and supporting products also play key roles here. Although they are not always absolutely necessary for the operation of a machine or plant, they contribute significantly to time savings and efficiency gains.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has revolutionized the way we live and work. While the IoT offers a multitude of benefits, it also brings security risks that need to be considered. Why are high-quality components for IoT applications especially significant in industry, and what safety aspects should be considered? We have summarized the most important information on IoT security.
In times when energy- and cost-efficient solutions are sought in virtually every area, the desire for long-lasting and robust products and components is once again increasingly noticeable in equipment and mechanical engineering. We think: with good reason! But what is connected with the demand for quality? How do high-quality products influence the production process? And: What guidelines must be observed? In the magazine article, we offer answers to these important questions. Read more!
