Gas Pipeline Monitoring System for Hospitals
Gas Pipeline Monitoring System for Hospitals
MOXA
This system integrator focuses on providing centralized gas pipeline monitoring systems for hospitals. The service they provide makes it possible for hospitals to reduce both maintenance and labor costs. Since hospitals may not have an existing network suitable for this type of system, GPRS communication provides an easy and ready-to-use solution for remote, distributed monitoring systemsSystem Requirements- GPRS communication - Seamless connection with SCADA software - Simple, front-end control capability - Expandable I/O channels - Combine AI, DI, and DO channels

These are serious concerns, especially if blockchains are to usher in the kind of post-industrial revolution that its advocates are predicting. Most of us can’t even protect our passwords, much less our private keys; the idea of integrating a corporation with thousands of employees with a high-tech blockchain seems about as realistic as training a cow to trade derivatives.
IIC Smart Manufacturing Connectivity for Brown-field Sensors
IIC Smart Manufacturing Connectivity for Brown-field Sensors
TE Connectivity
The discrete manufacturing domain is characterized by a strictly hierarchical structure of the automation systems, commonly referred to as the automation pyramid. Data acquired by a sensor typically flows through an IO-module into a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) which manages the local real-time control system. As all process data are concentrated in the PLC, re-programming the PLC and thus, implementing interfaces to access these data appear to be the natural choice to transfer them to the IT system. However, for brownfield installations this choice has proven impracticable for the following two reasons:In brownfield facilities, PLC usually operate within a once-specified environment and are rarely re-programmed. That is why the active staff is often not familiar with the code and lacks of the competence to modify the existing implementation in a reasonable amount of time.Furthermore, for cost reasons, any PLC was selected to exactly match the requirements of the environment within which it was intended to operate. That is why it cannot be assumed that a PLC will be able to support additional tasks such as communicating data through additional interfaces.

Edge (fog) computing shifts computing applications, data, and services away from centralized servers to the extremes of a network. This enables analytics and knowledge generation to occur at the source of the data.
Track and Trace for Industrial Tools
Track and Trace for Industrial Tools
Track and trace for industrial tools refers to systems capable of recognizing and reporting the location and status of tools in a facility. Today's factories require exacting work. Track and trace technology can improve production safety, quality, and productivity. Asset tracking is currently done via barcode and a variety of manual steps in most cases. However, new solutions leveraging smart tags, near-field communication (NFC), and RFID are coming to market to globally track all varieties of objects in real time.CHALLENGES / REQUIREMENTS- Tracking of handheld tools for optimized use- Avoid misuse of tools which can result in serious accident or injury- Precise application of pressure or torque is required in many industries and operator error can cause costly defects- Production of industrial and consumer goods requires exacting workSTAKEHOLDERS- Industrial operations- Equipment manufacturers- Cloud platform providersKEY OBJECTIVES- Factory systems can detect the location of a tool to within a meter or less- More precise use of the tools reduces the likelihood of product defects- Status monitoring and automation can ensure proper tool use to avoid accidents- Equipment utilization can be improved with better asset visibilityTYPICAL SYSTEM CAPABILITIES- Real-time tracking of location- Monitoring of availability and operational status- Communication to operators via device user interfaces USAGE VIEWPOINT- Tools are continuously monitored for location, use and idle time- Data for every tool is provided to the monitoring software, which monitors for optimal use of the tools to avoid accidents and improve precisionFUNCTIONAL VIEWPOINT- Sensors: Vibration, torque, heat, energy consumption- Network: WiFi, Wide Area Network (WAN)- Standards: - Augmented Intelligence: Prescriptive analytics- Augmented Behavior: Machine-to-human (M2H) interfaces
