Connectivity expert Weidmüller has chosen this year’s Drives & Controls Exhibition as the launchpad for solutions in the company’s groundbreaking u-mation range, which takes Industry 4.0 from a much-anticipated future concept to a productive reality for today.
Among Weidmüller’s key launches at the show are u-control, a platform-independent programming solution that works with standard web browsers; u-view, a range of multi-touch operator interface panels that provide optimised communication between users and machines; u-remote, a remote I/O system that offers the seamless communication with field devices needed for implementing Industry 4.0 concepts; and PROtop power supplies that provide the clean, dependable power essential for the correct functioning of modern automation systems.
Visitors to the stand will also be able to try out the new Weidmüller configurator, an intuitive software package that makes it easy to design, specify and order terminal rails and components, and to examine samples of many Weidmüller products that are already established in the automation sector including, for example, Rockstar® heavy-duty connectors and Klippon® Connect terminal blocks.
Throughout the show, experts from Weidmüller will be on hand to discuss with visitors their own individual requirements and applications. They will be happy to explain how the Weidmüller’s latest u-mation solutions make it possible for users to start reaping the benefits of Industry 4.0 right now – including increased efficiency, productivity and profitability. The experts will also be able to provide insights into other key developments supported by Weidmüller – such as Digital Twin, industrial analytics and integration of product data with the EPLAN computer aided engineering (CAE) platform.
Stand D348, Hall 10, NEC Birmingham: 10th-12th April 2018
