APPLICATIONS & USE CASES

DYNAMIC

End Effectors

End Effectors

Cabling limits the motion and flexibility of end effectors (e.g. grippers, vacuum pumps) attached to robots/cobots and is cumbersome to deploy. A wireless solution embedded inside the sensor/actuator  eliminates the cables and accessories required to run all along the robotic arm. Such a solution increases flexibility, and reduces overall complexity and cost.

LINEAR ROBOTS

LINEAR ROBOTS

Linear robots require complex cable layouts to support the  rapid dynamic motion and flexibility while moving workpieces across a machine’s area and in between production stages. Such cables tend to tear and lead to downtime and maintenance costs (e.g. press shop). Providing wireless data communication to the sensors and actuators connected to the linear robots reduces unplanned downtime, maintenance costs and complexity.

Transport Tracks

Transport Tracks

In order to simplify customization/setup of workpieces in a flexible and agile manner, the moving shuttles on transport track systems need to be smarter. It is required to have a low latency and reliable wireless data communication for the sensors and actuators on the shuttles. Current tracks only enable power distribution to the shuttles. A wireless solution enables each shuttle to wirelessly communicate for control and monitoring independently.

FIXED

Harsh Environments

Harsh Environments

In hazardous and hygienic industrial environments (such as food & beverage), wireless solutions are important for reducing costs associated with very expensive cabling deployments and maintenance, contamination and safety.

Condition Monitoring & IIOT

Condition Monitoring & IIOT

Wireless solutions make it more cost effective and simple to deploy sensors for condition monitoring (e.g. pressure, level, temperature sensors). An IIoT gateway further extends the connected enterprise by exposing manufacturers to a greater quantity of data from anywhere in the factory.

Complex Cabling Layouts

Complex Cabling Layouts

Mobile rail guided equipment such as large linear robots or drag chains with large cable braids limit mobility and tend to break/tear. A wireless solution reduces maintenance costs and unexpected downtime.

Machine Retrofit & Deployment

Machine Retrofit & Deployment

Wireless connectivity enables simple and cost effective retrofit and revamp of numerous devices on existing machines, simplifies relocation and upgrades, and new machine deployment.

MOBILE

Mobile Devices

Mobile Devices

Remote controls and pendants require mobility which is limited by existing cabling solutions that can be complex, cumbersome to operate, and can cause safety issues. A wireless industrial-grade solution enables full flexibility and mobility while reducing complexity and ensuring cable-grade reliability.

Decentralized Tooling

Decentralized Tooling

Mobile test equipment and toolkits are being moved constantly by operators in order to work on specific parts/components along the manufacturing line. This requires mobility which is limited by existing cabling solutions that can be complex, cumbersome to operate, and can cause safety issues. A wireless industrial-grade solution enables full flexibility and mobility while reducing complexity.

AGV

AGV

Sensors and actuators located on board Autonomous Guided Vehicles are in constant motion. A reliable and fast wireless communication enables complete mobility.
