Industrial Ethernet Week: Visions for IIoT and Sensor to Cloud

HARTING Industrial Ethernet Week

Automation experts and thought leaders to discuss Industrial Ethernet on the course to the IIoT, February 8-10.

From February 8-10, 2022, the HARTING Technology Group will be inviting customers and industry experts to the Industrial Ethernet Week – a week packed with talks and information on the topic of Ethernet communication in factory automation. Current and future solutions that are ready to spring into action enabling the IIoT will be highlighted.

HARTING experts will dialogue with numerous guests from the industrial sector about which IIoT applications users will need to have on their radar screens. The HARTING Industrial Ethernet Week is geared to imparting knowledge, inspiring and showing up solutions for the ongoing industrial transformation. Be sure to join and learn more about Ethernet topics such as the right connectivity, Sensor2cloud, SPE and Artificial Intelligence.

For three days experts from the automation industry will be addressing all of the Ethernet relevant topics, including questions such as which systems are in use today and which technologies will be necessary to realise IIoT applications?

HARTING will be welcoming guests from the following companies:

  • B&R
  • SICK
  • Analog Devices
  • Würth Elektronik eiSosGmbH & Co. KG
  • SPE Industrial Partner Network
  • Erium

Excerpts from agenda

Tuesday is dedicated to new technologies. How will Ethernet develop in the future as a communication medium for industrial automation and what new technologies will be needed to meet the greater challenges for new applications? What role will artificial intelligence play? What potentials do SPE, OPC UA and TSN open up for a seamless connection from sensors to the cloud?

Wednesday will focus on the following question: How will the design of devices change? Advancing miniaturisation and increased demands on the data processing of individual IIoT protagonists will call for new approaches in the design-in process. At the same time, the necessary infrastructure for new tasks must also be available. We take a look at compact, space-saving connectivity and SPE as a new physical layer and how it can be integrated into new device generations.

In wrapping things up, the conference will address the issues as to what effects will the preceding questions have on installation technology? The last day is dedicated to the installation world. There will be no IIoT without the right connections. Here, the discussions focus on gaining an overview of the right interfaces that are suitable for each and every application. From familiar solutions to new, resource saving connections that actively support miniaturisation.
