Your Future Automation—Pepperl+Fuchs Invites You to Its First Online Summit

June 29, 2020

Pepperl+Fuchs’ first online summit will take place from July 20 – 24. This free, fully digital event will offer customers and other interested parties a way to connect with industrial sensor and electrical explosion protection experts and learn about the latest solutions and trends in the fields of factory and process automation. For five exciting and informative days, they will address topics related to user-centered digitalization.

These topics include:

  •   –  Digital Kanban Management
  •   –  Mobile Devices and Services Drive Digital Transformation
  •   –  Smart Intralogistics Solutions with RFID and LiDAR Technology
  •   –  Ethernet Advanced Physical Layer (Ethernet APL)
  •   –  The Power of 3-D Measurement Technology

Participants will be able to access related keynotes, live shows, and panel discussions via a browser-based online platform. A digital networking lounge will give participants the opportunity to connect with attendees and experts from Pepperl+Fuchs and its partner companies. Other digital content, such as technical white papers, videos, and presentations, will be available for download. All content will be offered in English and will be presented twice a day so interested parties from around the world can participate.

Main Topics

Digital Kanban Management

It is hard to imagine manufacturing without Kanban systems. However error-prone, manual processes and low digitalization still leave plenty of room for improvement. Bosch Connected Industry (BCI), Pepperl+Fuchs, and Neoception have joined forces to develop a scalable system that prepares Kanban racks for Industry 4.0 and is equally suitable for greenfield projects and retrofits.

Mobile Devices and Services Drive Digital Transformation

Smartphones, tablets, and digital workflows have become integral to the modern workplace. As the global market leader for intrinsically safe mobile devices, the Pepperl+Fuchs brand ecom supports its customers from device configuration and management to the analysis and evaluation of (real-time) data. The result? A sophisticated mobile worker concept that streamlines processes, improves data quality, and increases productivity and employee safety.

Smart Intralogistics Solutions with RFID and LiDAR Technology

Precisely coordinated materials and goods flows require well-designed and innovative solutions, from custom sensor technology, infrastructure components, and cabling to system integration and software development. Pepperl+Fuchs, along with several of its customers, will showcase projects that demonstrate how RFID and LiDAR technology can be used to create these custom solutions.

Ethernet Advanced Physical Layer (Ethernet APL)

With the new Ethernet advanced physical layer (Ethernet APL), Pepperl+Fuchs and other companies are laying the foundation for future IoT applications in the process industry. The new physical layer enables field devices to be directly connected to higher-level systems, allowing consistent, transparent, and uniform communication across all hierarchical levels. In doing so, Ethernet APL builds on the experience and requirements of the process industry: long cable runs, twisted-pair cables, interoperability, and use in hazardous areas up to Zone 0/Class 1, Div. 1.

The Power of 3-D

Efforts to achieve high quality while reducing conversion times are creating complex engineering challenges in a range of industries. To accomplish the necessary measurement, quality, and positioning tasks, Pepperl+Fuchs and its subsidiaries VMT, 3D.aero, and Espace 6D are offering unique end-to-end solutions in the field of 3-D measurement technology. These transfer traditional tasks to a digital environment, furthering the development of the “digital twin.”
