Research Report: 2019 Guide to Machine Instrumentation - How manufacturers can harness machine data to optimize processes
Today’s manufacturing professionals need data and analytics insights to make improvements, upgrades and changes to their machines and processes. A production monitoring platform or software can help collect and analyze the machine data, but getting the data from the process to the platform can be a challenge.

Engineering.com explored the state of the field in machine instrumentation, from accessing the data buried in a machine controller or collecting new data by adding sensors to an existing machine.

Industrial IoT is a hot topic, but it can be difficult to find comprehensive information on the tangible components and backbone of a connected factory.

With information and advice from companies including Siemens, Rockwell Automation, PTC, Beckhoff Automation, and Balluff Sensors, this report delves into the nuts and bolts of today’s cutting-edge connected factory systems.
