Internet of Things (IoT)
If you’re looking for a motion control system for embedding in factory production applications, we’d suggest taking a look at the MAI602-M4D80 from iBASE. This has been designed for use in a number of manufacturing processes such as automated optical inspection, semiconductor wafer handling, packaging and material handling systems. But don’t just take our word for it – check out the specifications below.
Rugged is now stocking the iBase AMS300 Series expandable modular embedded system for smart factory automation applications. Powered by Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors, this compact, yet expandable, fanless system is ideal for industrial control and measurement processes, with the big advantage of having been designed for deployment in harsh conditions.
Forklift trucks are the driving force behind effective warehouse logistics – and if you operate a forklift fleet, rugged onboard computers are an absolute necessity
Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) are revolutionizing the way we do business. Automation, data exchange, smart factories, intelligent logistics, Cloud computing – it’s all part of the fourth industrial revolution. There are major gains to be made by embracing this new technological world – but it’s complex, dynamic and continually evolving. So how do you become a part of it?
There’s nothing worse than production grinding to halt because of a problem with your computer system. Finding a fix takes time and money – but the real cost is the resulting business disruption. Your operation might be held up for an hour or for a day. It will hit your bottom line and you could also lose customers as a result of the failure. In this post, we’ll take a look at the types of cost you are likely to incur and how you can avoid them.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) is real and it’s here to stay. So how is this affecting the way manufacturers design and run their new smart factories? Digital transformation is driving changes in the way we all work and for many manufacturers this is like stepping into a brave new world. So how do they face up to these new challenges?
It’s the latest dilemma – do you need a rugged device, or would a consumer equivalent be the right choice? There are plenty of assumptions feeding into this decision. People think rugged is heavier and more expensive but are consumer devices tough enough for working on the move? Which has the more advanced technology? It’s time to cut through the supposition and get to the facts.
Ever since people started to use technology onsite or on the move, there has been a need for rugged versions – but in the early days these were clunky and heavy, and didn’t keep up with state-of-the-art consumer technology. Now that’s all changed and you can find fully rugged pieces of equipment that are every bit as stylish and futuristic as their consumer equivalents.
