The Internet of Things, or IoT, refers to the billions of physical devices around the world that are now connected to the internet, collecting and sharing data. A lightbulb that can be switched on using a smartphone app is an IoT device or as serious as a self driving car, or as complicated as a jet engine that’s now filled with thousands of sensors collecting and transmitting data back to make sure it is operating efficiently. At an even bigger scale, smart cities projects are filling entire regions with sensors to help us understand and control the environment. IoT adds a level of digital intelligence to devices that would be otherwise dumb, enabling them to communicate real-time data without a human being involved, effectively merging the digital and physical worlds.
The term “Internet of Things” was coined by entrepreneur Kevin Ashton, one of the founders of the Auto-ID Centre at MIT. Since 2012, major changes in sensors have led to rapid maturing in the Internet of Things market – fuelling digital transformation for many businesses.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) or the fourth industrial revolution or Industry 4.0 is all names given to the use of IoT technology in a business setting. The concept is the same as for the consumer IoT; to use a combination of sensors, wireless networks, big data, and analytics to measure and optimize industrial processes.
Stage IoT architecture which are:
STAGE 1: Sensors and actuators: sensors collect data from an environment/Machine and turns it into usable data.
STAGE 2: Internet gateways and Data Acquisition Systems: Data acquisition systems (DAS) are responsible for aggregating and converting the data. It connects to the sensor networks, aggregates the output, and converts the analog data to digital data.
STAGE 3: Edge IT Data Processing: enhanced analytics and pre-processing are performed, Edge IT systems also use machine learning and visualization technologies, it generates useful results and only passes those to the next stage.
STAGE 4: Datacenter and cloud: all the data that needs more in-depth analysis without requiring immediate feedback goes to cloud-based data centers. These data centers are capable of analyzing, handling, and storing huge amounts of data.
We at UCAM, make Rotary Table smart and IOT enabled. IOT will help avoiding unplanned downtime — Using analytics to predict equipment failure ahead of time to schedule orderly maintenance procedures otherwise known as Predictive Maintenance can help mitigate the damaging economics of unplanned downtime.
Monitor UCAM Product health live by monitoring different parameters like over pressure limit/under pressure limit, oil level status, critical temperature data, humidity data, Clamp/unclamp feedback. Analyzing the parameter will contribute in improvement of Product Performance.
