Achieving the connected plant: How to better configure devices
The commissioning and configuration of new devices has long been a headache for plant managers and technicians.
The “connected plant,” with its promises of smart equipment sharing data and allowing manufacturers to make smarter business decisions, can only be a reality if equipment and its sensors are properly set up and connected successfully to the plant’s network. However, commissioning and configuring new devices has long been a hassle for industrial manufacturers. Fortunately, new technologies are allowing for bulk device commissioning and configuration. Simply put, automated and in-bulk commissioning and configuration can get your critical devices – instruments and valves – up and running sooner and with less rework.
