Industrial Automation Handbook

The automation of the industrial sector is about quickly and easily adapting manufacturing capabilities to where they’re needed, based on ever-shifting market demands.

Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are integral components to reaching this goal within the new industrial landscape – but the unique demands of industrial automation are not easily solved with commercial IoT solutions.

Finding the right solution to your individual needs can be challenging, but it has been made simpler with these tools and techniques from some of industry’s IoT leaders in this sponsored ebook from

Articles in this handbook include:

Sensor Survival in Resistance Welding
Sensors can fail as much as three to four times a day: imagine several sensors on several machines, all with a different degree of exposure to welding operations, needing to be replaced on a frequent basis. This could be anywhere from a few sensors to a few hundred, depending on the application and industry. Here’s what you can do to mitigate that.

Digital Pneumatics – Early Wins for Process Automation
With Festo Motion Terminal’s digitally-controlled pneumatics, the days when a valve had only one function are over, as the same ones can now be used as both proportional or control valves. The valve terminal is like a reprogrammable piece of hardware, and can even be reconfigured remotely.

Establishing an Open, Modular and Holistic Automation Architecture
Technology collaboration between two leading open, automation industry standards organizations is changing the paradigm for integrating control systems, applications and devices within a unified architecture – all aimed at optimizing information exchange throughout the industrial enterprise.
