Industrial Automation

Industrial automation is the application of technologies such as industrial software, robotics, and control systems to manage and optimize machinery and processes, reducing the need for human intervention in industrial functions. It primarily concerns manufacturing, quality control, condition monitoring, and material handling. Originally, it aimed to boost productivity and cut labor costs, yet now it aims to enhance quality and flexibility.

Industrial automation is closely linked to the “fourth industrial revolution” or Industry 4.0/I4.0, which emphasizes the role of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). IIoT employs internet-enabled devices, software, and hardware to improve manufacturing processes, striving for a more reliable and efficient platform.

One emerging technology in industrial automation is IO-Link Wireless. It enables wireless communication between sensors, actuators, and control systems, enhancing flexibility and scalability in automation. IO-Link Wireless contributes to advancing industrial automation, emphasizing quality, efficiency, and adaptability in industrial settings.
