Edge series: Edge sensors, data gathering: IIoT automation sensors to fit application needs

1 Certified Professional Development Hour (PDH) available upon successful completion of an exam for eligible attendees.

Edge applications often receive optimal controller selection to ensure best performance, but do they have enough high-quality sensors for appropriate data gathering and analysis? Are industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) automation initiatives helping or hurting data gathering and how? Is sensor information getting where it needs to in reliable form for prompt and reliable decisions? System integrators advise how to get required data for applications.

Learning objectives:

  • Explore how to know when an application has enough sensors of appropriate type and quality to meet IIoT automation goals.
  • Understand how IIoT automation sensor needs may differ from traditional automation sensor needs.
  • Review sensor sampling rate, signal quality and other things that can affect sensor measurements.
  • See examples of sensor use in IIoT automation applications and the benefits of how appropriate sensor selection and use are helping.
