Internet of things, supply chain and smart industries
Industry 4.0 refers to the Industry of Things. This is a new industrial revolution by making production and assembly lines intelligent.
These new connected factories are able to monitor a process, diagnose themselves automatically and take decentralized decisions to optimize production and logistics.
Enerbee Technology at the service of Industry 4.0
Industrial IoT requires plants and their equipment to be paired with a multitude of sensors. In this case, installing cables to power these sensors is a real obstacle and the use of batteries leads to excessive maintenance costs.
Enerbee’s generator can be integrated into the moving parts of this existing equipment, supplying power to the sensors (vibration, position, speed, temperature, etc.) and sending data wirelessly to allow real time optimization.
FAQ Industry 4.0
- Why using an energy autonomous system for your Industry 4.0?
Installing autonomous energy solutions (battery-less IoT) such as Enerbee ones allows you to optimize your production lines in term of uptime, cost of ownership, and efficiency.
Industrial machines generally operate continuously and for a production site extended shutdown can have a significant economic impact.
With an energy autonomous sensor system, there is no need to stop the assembly lines to check wiring or change batteries.
- Why equipping your factories and operate with intelligent assembly lines?
Equipping its industrial tool with IoT sensors helps to prevent and anticipate the maintenance of its equipment and to set up a true predictive maintenance strategy. A shutdown for the replacement of a mechanical part can be long and costly.
Optimizing machine downtime thanks to autonomous wireless sensors will help to make the most of your equipment.
- Industry 4.0 and communicating equipment: what advantages?
In an industrial environment, saving energy is key, and setting up equipment that communicates with each other reduces energy expenditure and optimizes processes in terms of cost and time.
