In the field of drive technology, a solution demonstrates how high-frequency data can be processed close to the machine in future. The connection of Sinamics frequency converters to an Edge device enables users of machines and applications to perform complex analysis of data that is already collected in the drive. Machine learning algorithms identify patterns and detect anomalies and their causes, providing early indications of necessary maintenance, which minimizes downtimes. In the field of AI-based services, Siemens also presents “Predictive Services for Foundry”, which enable users to increase overall plant efficiency in the automotive sector.
In order to increase the efficiency in industrial energy supply and energy consumption, a connected ecosystem of power grids, buildings and industry is required. At the Hannover Messe Siemens presents solutions for the interaction between intelligent power grids and consumers as well as IoT-based systems and services for the energy and building infrastructure in the digital factory.
