Analog Devices has announced a wide range of solutions within its advanced Industry 4.0 roadmap targeted at supporting industrial equipment OEMs to accelerate their path to Industry 4.0. These new solutions provide next-generation flexibility, connectivity, and efficiency for today’s existing factory infrastructure.
“Our customers want to move fast toward Industry 4.0 but also need to ensure their investments are part of a viable, long-term plan,” said Brendan O’Dowd, general manager, Analog Devices’ Industrial Automation Business Unit. “This can be extremely difficult to navigate given the current pace of innovation. We’re focused on a set of solution areas that represent an immediate opportunity for our customers to put existing brownfield infrastructure on a path to Industry 4.0. Each of the solutions we’re announcing today are critical building blocks in these strategies, which include Deterministic Ethernet, security, and condition-based monitoring.”
The company’s industrial automation solutions will be showcased at electronica 2018.
