Phoenix Contact presents a cloud application for recording and analyzing data
The safety of machinery is and remains a critical subject for machine operators, plant engineers, and systems manufacturers. Their first priority is the safety of machine users, but this can also cause unplanned operational interruptions. A common cause of failures is inadequate design. The ability to access safety system data via the Internet of Things (IoT) in real time and to convert this into meaningful information unlocks enormous potential, points Phoenix Contact out.
With Phoenix Contact cloud-based solutions, status information on standard- and safety functions are transmitted continuously via a Profinet control solution to the Proficloud. This information is then evaluated there. Thanks to the holistic consideration of resources and machinery, completely new opportunities are opened up for operators and designers to increase the operational performance. This enables, for example, the determination of interdependencies between safety- and process parameters. (nhp)
