With a view to the requirements of Industry 4.0 applications, the digital point-to-point connection IO-Link offers a manufacturer-independent, fieldbus-independent communication technology, which provides manifold possibilities for the intelligent connection of sensors and actuators to the control level of an automation system and the communication between plant control and field level.
The radio standard LoRa is derived from "long range" and is intended as an open industry standard for a low power wide area network (LPWAN) for small amounts of data, but for a long range. LoRaWAN, on the other hand, is a specification for LPWAN and the name of a wireless network based on LoRa, which links battery-powered devices wirelessly, energy-efficiently and over long distances. Thus, the low-power network LoRaWAN provides an infrastructure for the IoT - Internet of Things - for networking a variety of "things/devices".
As one of the core competencies of Müller Industrie-Elektronik, safe load measurement technology for overload protection on the upper and lower machinery of stage technology systems has been ensuring a high level of safety in theater and stage technology for decades.
The TH-TIO head transmitter, designed for temperature measurements with a Pt100 3-wire or thermocouple, is one of the first measuring devices with an IO-Link interface from the new IO-Link product series by Müller Industrie-Elektronik, which will be gradually developed.
This project is funded with funds of the European Fonds for regional development. It concerns the development and integration of a Cobot in order to cover efficiency of resources and opening up for development of new added value potentials by automated part processes.
