The Difference Between IIoT And Traditional Automation

- Jul 19, 2018-

The Industrial Internet of things will establish an Internet system that fully interacts industrial production with Internet services, which can affect all production equipment, all aspects of industrial production, which are in the industrial Internet of things. In order to achieve the best state of production, a highly flexible, individualized and resource optimal industrial production system can be established. In recent years, Internet of things technology has been widely used in the production process of various industries and the adjustment of industrial structure. It plays an increasingly important role in industrial structure adjustment, energy saving and emission reduction, production efficiency improvement and so on.


In the construction of industrial Internet system, traditional industrial automation can be seen as a part of the Internet of things. As a combination of information and automation, Internet of things has unlimited potential and advantages. Some enterprises have seen the potential of the Internet of things in the management process and production process optimization, and achieved preliminary results. 

What we usually say about industrial automation mainly includes data acquisition and analysis, information transportation, sensors receiving data and sending out instructions, etc. The Internet of things is characterized by comprehensive perception, reliable transmission, intelligent processing, and so on. The two functions are intrinsically interlinked. The greatest difference between the Internet of things and industrial automation lies in its greater emphasis on data collection and analysis, as well as the application of intelligent technology in production, which is not only a change in the traditional mode of production of industrial automation, but also in the process of production. The intelligent industrialization mode is formed by introducing the advanced Internet thinking and proceeding from the circular development of the ecological industrial chain. 

The industrial Internet of things is based on automation, and its control system is the product of the combination of computer technology, system control technology and network communication technology. It pays attention to decentralized control, centralized management, and in the process of operation, The production equipment is connected through the network and is centrally managed by the operator in the control center. It can also install sensor equipment on various real objects such as public facilities, production equipment, vehicles, data reception facilities, etc. The production system is connected with the external environment through the Internet, and then a specific program is run to achieve remote control or direct communication of equipment, reduce communication links, and improve the efficiency and quality of industrial production.
