How IIoT is disrupting the Automation Industry

Nov 22, 2022 | Engineering, Sales

Technological advances and the rise of artificial intelligence have unlocked insights into the potential of technology for the Automation Industry. The industry is evolving as more businesses embrace digital solutions during their digital transformation journey. Leading this positive disruption is IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things).

In simple terms, IIoT is defined as a network of smart devices and sensors in the industrial sector. This network facilitates machine-to-machine communications that automate processes. With benefits such as overall improved productivity and profitability, it also offers other advantages, including:

1. Predictive Maintenance

IIoT devices and sensors not only capture data and respond but also utilise machine learning to calculate potential events. In short, IIoT-enabled sensors predict breakdowns and indicate when maintenance is needed. This proactive approach reduces unexpected downtime, cuts repair costs, and enhances the lifespan of equipment.

2. Greater Control & Remote Access of Operations

Due to the nature of IIoT systems, a centralised system links operations, allowing for more control. Limited to specific individuals, it enables remote monitoring and usage. This results in increased control, ensures security, and reduces labour costs by eliminating manual processes, such as equipment or people monitoring.

3. Increased Internal Collaboration

Most importantly, IIoT fosters improved internal communication and cooperation between employees, divisions, and levels of management. This is achieved by providing a shared platform and access to company data, breaking down workplace silos, and presenting opportunities for greater interdepartmental collaboration and engagement.

4. Improved Safety

With centrally managed processes, IIoT facilitates integrated safety measures, including incident alerts, automatic shut-down prompts, and other safeguards. Overall, the integration of standard workplace safety protocols ensures adherence to processes and maintains safe operations.

5. Enhanced Quality Assurance

Automated processes utilising smart sensors and innovative technologies, such as augmented reality applications, replace manual quality checks. This reduces reliance on manual processes, minimising human error. Overall, IIoT improves outputs, reduces delays, and minimises wastages, lowering operating costs.

IIoT is still in its initial stages, with more innovations expected in the next few years. As businesses increasingly adopt IIoT and undergo digital transformations, smart devices and connected systems will become the new norm. This will continue to bring positive disruptions to the industry and influence expectations while setting new standards for quality, product lifecycle, safety, and communication.
