Machine builder design efficiencies increase when core machine components are easy to select and simple to wire and install. Thanks, in part, to fast moving technology trends such as Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Until just recently, for example, it would never have occurred to most machine builders that they would have the ability to connect motors or other loads to the industrial networks and the internet in order to instantly access data required to make better design, installation, and machine maintenance decisions.
The TeSys Island from Schneider Electric has been designed as a digitized solution, tasked with improving OEM workplace efficiencies. Some of the new fully digital and object-oriented load management systems offer efficiency gains at every stage of the machine life cycle.
