Uninterrupted communication - Network-compatible sensors for intralogistics

E-Kanban, AGV fleets and paper-free consignments: these are all typical applica-tions for wireless switches and sensors. In intralogistics applications, such switches and sensors are often integrated in flexibly configurable wireless net-works. A "sensor bridge" facilitates simple connection to the superordinate IT infrastructure, permitting uninterrupted communication paths from the shop floor to the material flow management or ERP system.

Wireless switching devices optimise press brakes

Wireless switching devices mean a high degree of flexibility. One example of this is in the press brakes made by Bystronic, where mechanical engineers employ remote control technology from the steute Wireless range, e.g. for communication between a press brake and a "mobile bending cell" automation unit.
