Industry 4.0: A Smart New Approach from the Field
Published on : Friday 01-07-2022
#Empowerthefield, the Industry 4.0 program of Endress+Hauser, is among the leading-edge solutions for Industry 4.0.
Digitised measuring devices and the data they generate form the basis of Industry 4.0. Yet up to 97% of the data from the field level is not used.
At Endress+Hauser, we recognise that smart manufacturing technology begins with smart choices. With the Industrial Internet of Things ecosystem expanding fast, it’s critical for companies to modernise in ways that improve business outcomes and justify investment.
Our smart, innovative automation solutions and technologies adapt to customer production methods and serve new communications and data strategies.
We measure – We automate – Automation solutions
For plant operators or plant manufacturers, Endress+Hauser has the perfect combination of reliable products and expertise for tailored automation solutions during the entire system life cycle. From consulting, needs analysis and commissioning to employee training, Endress+Hauser offers everything from a single source, including solutions for areas such as analysis, terminal operations, mechanical instrumentation or the Industrial Internet of Things.
Success factor service – planning, building and operation
Endress+Hauser offers a broad spectrum of services that allow plant operators to exploit the entire potential of their systems. With more than 70 years of experience, Endress+Hauser not only boasts comprehensive expertise at the field level, but opens up the complete spectrum of process automation services.
From system planning and engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning, to maintenance and calibration, the company offers tailored services for the entire life cycle of the customer’s systems.
Further product highlights
With the iTHERM ModuLine TM131, Endress+Hauser offers a thermometer with a fast-responding thermowell and Bluetooth operation for demanding applications in the chemical industry. And with DUAL-SEAL, this thermometer offers reliable sealing of the process side in the event of a thermowell break. The non-glass, digital CPS77Dn pH sensor is a Memosens ISFET electrode for hygiene applications in the food and life sciences industries.
Its bacteria-proof reference with contamination-resistant gel guarantees stable measurements. The autoclavable sensor can be sterilised with hot steam and features an unbreakable PEEK shaft to assure the highest degree of product safety. The FWR30 is the first Endress+Hauser cloud-only sensor for continuous, radar-based level measurements. Connected via a wireless data link, the instrument is a component of the Netilion IIoT ecosystem.
The electromagnetic Progmag W 300 flowmeter, the specialist for demanding water and wastewater applications, was developed for reliable use in Ex areas and harsh environments. The Gammapilot FMG50 is designed for fill level and density measurements. With radiometric measurements, the compact radiometric transmitter is suitable for point level detection, continuous fill level measurements and interface measurements.
The new Liquiphant: More safety, more Industry 4.0
Endress+Hauser’s popular level switch, which has proven its value in millions of installations around the world, is now Industry 4.0–ready. The new generation, featuring Endress+Hauser Heartbeat technology, is capable of communicating with smartphones and tablets via Bluetooth. Developed from the ground up in line with IEC 61508, the new Liquiphant is also suitable for use in SIL2 and SIL3 applications.
The Liquiphant FTL51B releases the potential of field data from level measurements so the information can be analysed in the Netilion IIoT cloud. Plant operators acquire valid information that can be used for process optimisation, such as predictive maintenance, and can increase the availability of their systems. With the new Liquiphant, users can get started on the path to digitalisation. Together with Endress+Hauser, they can be Industry 4.0–ready whenever they want.
Prosonic Flow G300/500 ultrasound flowmeter
With its condensation-resistant sensor design, the Prosonic Flow G300/500 supplies highly precise measurements, even with moist or wet gases. Installation effort is minimal thanks to the integrated pressure and temperature measurement. The instrument also directly measures and outputs mass flow and standard volume through its multiparameter measurement capability.
The integrated gas analysis function furthermore enables the calculation of values such as heat, energy flow, molar mass, density and viscosity. The Prosonic Flow G300/500 is SIL-certified and, in conjunction with Heartbeat technology, offers traceable instrument verification without interrupting the process.
Endress+Hauser supports its customers across the entire plant life cycle by providing simple and reliable access to consistent device and process data, as well as using sensor signals for diagnosis, verification and monitoring. Cloud-based asset management, as well as preventive and predictive maintenance, are viewed as promising approaches, especially in the cost-intensive operations phase.
