Applications

 

IoT Examples at FA Sites

 Before the introduction of Self-Monitoring Sensors 

Preventive
maintenance
We want to avoid production line stoppage that might occur due to unexpected sensor failure.
Line stoppage hours × (manufacturing unit cost / hour) = Loss
We want to minimize the production line down time to almost zero.

Problems
◆The amount of data to be collected is large and this may lower the PLC processing capacity.
◆The burden of data analysis is large.
◆Resetting the replaced sensors is troublesome.

 After the introduction of Self‑Monitoring Sensors 
 From preventive maintenance to predictive maintenance 

 

Leave the sensor diagnosis to the sensor itself.

All you need to do is to monitor the sensor state.
PLC can be used exclusively for controlling devices.
Possible to check detail information at a desired timing.

Leave the resetting for replaced sensors to the higher-level master

Automatically written from the connected master.
Possible not only to save time but also to prevent human errors.



IoT Examples at FA Sites 02

 Before the introduction of Self-Monitoring Sensors 

Remote controlling
and batch settings
We want to place sensors close to sensing points as much as possible.
However, it is often difficult to make settings, particularly when there are many sensors to install.
We want to send predetermined parameter values in a batch file for a repeater, etc.
We want to confirm that required sensors are properly connected at the startup of the system.

Problems
◆It takes time to set sensors.
◆We want to avoid mistakes in setting sensors or wiring.

 After the introduction of Self‑Monitoring Sensors  

 

Fully utilize the advantages of the IO‑Link output.

Possible to read or write set values through external
interface.
Possible to set multiple sensors in a batch process.
Possible to save the set parameters in an external medium.
Possible to recognize and discriminate individual information.
