Industrial Internet of Things applications will be showcased by Arrow Electronics at the Hanover Fair April 1-5). Demonstrations relating to predictive maintenance, machine vision, connected logistics, device management, and energy harvesting will all be available to visitors. Arrow is also exhibiting in the MindSphere Lounge.

How to connect sensors, controllers, actuators and smart devices to one another, and over the Internet will also be a feature. The demonstration also includes how to integrate that data to provide performance-enhancing feedback.

Arrow’s approach takes into account the fact that much existing industrial equipment and critical infrastructure predates IoT and has, at best, only local connectivity.

Solutions will be discussed that bring this connectivity up to date and prepare systems for potential future technology changes. 

Increased connectivity brings greater security challenges, and Arrow will show a series of software solutions covering real business-use cases.  

In the MindSphere Lounge in hall 9, Arrow is demonstrating several solutions including an end-to-end smart asset tracking use case in collaboration with Siemens. This combination of indoor and outdoor asset tracking enables users to track assets throughout the entire lifecycle of the manufacturing process.

The resulting location data, combined with condition-monitoring information, can help to improve process workflows and productivity.
