Last week we discussed “What is Industry 4.0 and How Can it Benefit You?” Today we go a step further by outlining some of the things you can do now to prepare.
1.) Get connected with Industrial Ethernet
Now is the time to consider what connectivity options your mobile computers, scanners, printers and recognition devices support. Industry 4.0 devices will utilize a wide range of communication protocols including EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, Modbus/TCP, SLMP, CC-Link, POWERLINK, OPC-DA, TCP/IP, SMTP and FTP. Our experts can make sure you are using the correct protocol and troubleshoot issues that may arise.
2.) Explore machine vision systems
