In the age of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0, industrial organizations of all sizes want to seamlessly integrate and analyze their field devices from edge to cloud. However, integrating plant floor data with enterprise systems – not to mention bringing Internet connectivity to production operations – can pose challenges. Foremost among these are cost and the complexity of integrating technologies from different vendors. Despite these hurdles, bridging the gap between device-level information and systems at the plant and corporate levels promises significant business value for manufacturers. Among the potential payoffs are faster time to market, lower total cost of ownership, improved asset utilization, and more effective enterprise risk management.
The possibilities of smart connected devices and cloud-based software applications are endless, and once a connection across the Internet is also provided, this value can be extracted to varying levels within the organization. FieldComm Group technologies have been driving digital transformation for more than two decades with interoperable, fully integrated field device protocols. FOUNDATION Fieldbus™, HART™ and WirelessHART™ devices can be the basis for digitization supporting IIoT initiatives.
