Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the application of Internet of Things (IoT) technology in industrial settings, facilitating the interconnection and communication between physical devices, machinery, and systems. Its goal is to collect, analyze, and exchange data, optimizing industrial processes, enhancing efficiency, and enabling data-driven decision-making. However, implementing IIoT in industrial environments faces challenges such as communication difficulties due to harsh conditions like noise, vibration, and humidity. This is where IO-Link Wireless comes into play, offering real-time industrial cable-grade communication. By allowing seamless connectivity and data retrieval from various components and machines, IO-Link Wireless empowers IIoT, making it feasible in challenging industrial settings.

IO-Link Wireless functions as a vital component in the IIoT implementation process by enabling communication from sensors to the IO-Link Wireless Master and further to the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) through Industrial Ethernet protocols. This data can then be transmitted to cloud-based and on-premise applications for storage and analysis. IO-Link Wireless plays a crucial role in ensuring vendor-agnostic data collection, addressing the challenge of diverse machines using components from different manufacturers. In addition, the system leverages advanced analytics and machine learning algorithms in the cloud, providing actionable insights and optimizing operations.
