Do you need to know how your installation is working?
Only by knowing what is happening at your machines anytime will you be able to take decisions that will lead to the increase in the productivity and efficiency of your processes, thus leading to a good maintenance of your installation. Simply because you can’t manage what you don’t know. It makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?
Facilities that take advantage of data with Industrial communication technologies like IO-Link will help you pursue the optimisation of your processes through the increase in assets such as efficiency and obviously productivity. In those terms, digital flow and pressure sensors turn out to be an ubiquitous element as a source of that valuable information.

DECEMBER 2021 Such is the evolutionary rate of change in modern manufacturing that failing to keep pace with the industry’s shift to digitalisation – and its associated efficiency and productivity benefits – can prove extremely costly. But where to begin? Most professionals in this space point to data collection as the first step, because subsequent data analysis can support the adoption of predictive maintenance strategies, better decision-making and continuous process improvements. However, it is only possible to fulfil this ambition by adopting the optimal sensor for the application.
