Components in automated environments

Automation as part of Industry 4.0 requires real-time communication capability of all relevant components in devices and production facilities—from sensors and actuators to control elements. As a manufacturer, by integrating industrial communication interfaces into your components, you're helping to maximize the availability of industrial processes while ensuring that processes run smoothly. At Hilscher, we are dedicated to helping you do just that—and to developing efficient solutions to your biggest challenges with our products and services:

Components in automated environments
Integration Cost

Components for automated equipment and systems are used in a variety of mostly highly individual production systems. However, as a manufacturer, you want to keep the integration workload as low as possible in order to save costs and minimize the time-to-market for your customers.

Continuity

The automation market is in a state of constant flux. Companies are constantly innovating new products, new devices and new standards—we help you make them work for you. Our communication solutions are available for years and can be upgraded to include the latest trends and standards. With netX and Hilscher you are well prepared for the future.

Flexibility and Variability

As a component manufacturer, you want to target a variety of different markets. The key is to support all relevant protocols, standards, and interfaces. But this presents different challenges depending on your region and technology. Components for automated devices must therefore offer a high degree of flexibility and variability.

As specialists in the field of industrial communication, we have made it our mission to provide component manufacturers with the best possible support in the form of easy-to-use and flexible solutions. As a member of leading committees and professional associations, we have an eye on the trends and include them in our roadmap. With our wide range of products, we also have the right solution for your application and we're happy to help you with our engineering and consulting services. We've already equipped a wide range of components with industrial communication, including:

  • I/O devices
  • Measuring instruments
  • Power supplies
  • Gateways
  • Industrial PCs
