Industrial Internet Consortium Announces Results for Smart Manufacturing Connectivity for Brown-field Sensors Testbed https://www.automation.com/files/pluginfiles/item_99766/field_376/IIC-logo-4_reg.png
26. November 2018 - The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) Announced Results for Smart Manufacturing Connectivity for Brown Field Sensors Testbed. IIC Member Participants TE Connectivity and SAP SE, together with the OPC Foundation and ifm participants, developed a solution that allows operators of decades-old manufacturing sites (brown fields) to connect sensors to an IT system using existing infrastructure without compromising real-time operation
- ] The test bed replaces the I / O module that connects sensors to PLCs in real-time automation systems through a Y-Gateway that reuses existing physical wiring.
- The Y-Gateway supports easy integration into IT systems by using a single OPC UA data model for IO-Link sensors, which is currently being standardized by a joint working group of the IO-Link Community and the OPC Foundation ,
- The data is transmitted to the enterprise IT via OPC UA and further processed either in production data objects in SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII) or in SAP Cloud Platform.
The Testbed leads have published their results in an in-depth overview. This can be downloaded under Smart Manufacturing Connectivity for Brown-field Sensors Testbed. Initial Commissioning Report Upon Completion of Phase I.
