In the age of Industry 4.0 where system automation is the primary goal, the importance of smart sensors cannot be understated. Given the fact that the unlimited exchange of data in the areas of manufacturing, product and logistics enables significantly better decision making as well as improved transparency spanning the entire value chain, it could be said that without intelligent sensors, Industry 4.0 would not exist, at least not in its current form.
Comprehensive Intelligence Gathered through Quality Sensory Technology
Sensor technology gives smart machines the capabilities to self-monitor, self learn and self correct for improved, independent performance. All HYDAC hydraulic systems that are 4.0 ready come with the newest smart sensor technology. Just as humans possess the senses of touch, taste, smell, sound and sight, smart sensors act as senses for machines, with the feedback they deliver being exactly what makes intelligence-based machines possible to begin with.
HYDAC smart sensors require no configuration thanks to a built-in HSI interface that enables true plug and play functionality. Find out more from us today.
