Data collection

Acquire data without interfering with the production process

Data is the key to the successful digitalization of your production. Every day, countless pieces of information are generated from data that can be used to optimize production, generate new business models, and much more. They should be available in real time and evaluable at any time. In order to be able to increase productivity, a cross-factory and yet individually adaptable data collection concept must be implemented that takes old and new systems into consideration in equal measure. Particularly in brownfield plants, the appropriate standard interfaces such as MQTT and OPC UA are not available across the board.

Before the data is collected, suitable sensors first have to be installed in the system or in the field. They form the basis for comprehensive data acquisition in the Digital Factory.

Within the applications throughout the production processes, different positions and sequences, states of physical variables such as pressure and temperatures, right through to imaging technologies have to be recorded. The PULSOTRONIC sensor range offers you a broad portfolio for the respective applications.
