Course Introduction

SICK (one of the leading producers of sensors and sensor solution) combines our 75 years of sensor and industrial automation expertise in Factory, Logistics and Process segments with our digital expertise, creating data applications and solutions that enable optimising of our customer’s business processes.

Course Objectives

The course provides participants with an understanding of technology that enables connectivity and industrial integration in such varied use-cases today.  Some examples includes condition monitoring, manufacturing process monitoring and predictive monitoring. All of these relies on the ability to integrate data from the Shop-floor to a higher level – the Top-floor. 

Participants will get hands-on experience in using edge gateways such as the SIG200 IO-Link Master and TDC-E with the use of practical exercises to learn about Vertical Integration. They will focus on a practical use-case of Overall Equipment Effectiveness in their learning of the Vertical Integration technologies so as to enable a practical and realistic value to their knowledge. 

Participants will be equipped with skills to navigate these technologies in that and other use-cases and application when they come across them in their industries.

Course Outline

By the end of the course, participants will be able to: 
• Explain the different protocols involved in Industry 4.0 Vertical Integration like IO-Link, HTTP REST, and MQTT 
• Integrate sensor data (include measurement and condition data) in various IIoT edge gateways (on the Shop-floor) and Cloud (the Top-floor)
