Variable Speed Drives and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
29 March 2018
Nidec Control Techniques felt there was more information to uncover around Variable Speed Drives and the Industrial Internet of Things. That’s why it produced a whitepaper, highlighting the top six productivity benefits OEMs can offer their customers.
In Nidec Control Techniques’ previous whitepaper, ‘Make Industry 4.0 work for you’, it pulled out some of the key themes that came out of the research supplied by partner Kinneir Dufort around Variable Speed Drive and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The focus was on how you could use Industry 4.0 as a stepping stone to grow your business. It looked at aspects such as basic machine connectivity, the benefits of being IIoT ready and cloud vs. remote data logging.
This second whitepaper highlights the top six productivity benefits OEMs can offer their customers, these include:
1. Operational efficiency
2. Smart machine optimisation
3. Mass customisation
4. Quality control
5. Remote diagnostics
6. Predictive maintenance
7. Understanding the role of Variable Speed Drives
One of the defining factors that is enabling smart factories to thrive is the development of intelligent motor control systems. Variable Speed Drives (VSDs) now come with embedded logic in the form of an on-board PLC. That means it’s possible not only to monitor drives over a network, but actually execute programmes too.
Why intelligent Variable Speed Drives matter?
As you’ll see in the research, intelligent variable speed drives provide a cost effective way of bringing the latest high performance technology into your business. Even if you don’t use the PLC aspect of the drive, it won’t cost you anything extra.
The Nidec Control Techniques team are available to support you throughout your development process. That way you’ll gain order winning technology, helping to build your business for the future.
