With Smart Manufacturing In Mind, Schneider Electric Looks To Channel To Implement IoT Solutions

With #SmartManufacturing In Mind, @SchneiderNA Looks To Channel To Implement #IoT Solutions:

  • Schneider Electric sees the Internet of Things as a way to get to the next level of manufacturing – and the company is calling on its partners to lead the charge in working with customers to implement IoT solutions on the factory floor.
  • “At Schneider Electric we are extremely proud that in this third industrial revolution… the first PLC [programmable logic controller], the first Windows-based HMI [human machine interface], all that has come through the innovation of this team that has worked with our partners and customers,” he said.
  • [Related: Emerging Vendors 2017: IoT Startups You Need To Know] – – The industrial market has undergone several revolutions over the past decades – including the emergence of steam and water, electricity and now computing and digital technology, said Schneider Electric.
  • The end goal, argued Michael Grasley, vice president of technology and marketing at Schneider Electric partner Callisto Integration, is not IoT, but “smart manufacturing,” where customers’ factories are completely digitized, can collect and process data from machines, and most importantly use predictive maintenance solutions.
  • Moving forward, Schneider Electric will tap its partners – particularly its community of 4,100 systems integrators who can integrate IoT into existing legacy industrial systems and leverage their knowledge of vertical markets like food and beverage or oil and gas.

Ravi Gopinath, executive vice president of Schneider Electric, said that as more industrial control systems – including programmable logical controllers and SCADA systems – become digitized so that operators can collect data from them, Schneider Electric will be at the forefront of this newest digital revolution.

The industrial market has undergone several revolutions over the past decades – including the emergence of steam and water, electricity and now computing and digital technology, said Schneider Electric.

But as the company begins to see the newest revolution – which involves tools like IoT, artificial intelligence, and augmented reality, Schneider Electric is also creating new innovative tools to keep up with what manufacturing companies are…
