Digitization is increasingly shaping workflows and infrastructure in production halls and large handling centers. The Internet of Things (IoT), which allows machines to communicate autonomously and be operated remotely, opens up new possibilities. In modern production, steadily growing amounts of data are generated for control and diagnostics. While this data is often sent via conductor lines with low transmission rates for simple transport tasks of mobile applications, this communication method is no longer possible today for more complex applications due to the necessary data rates.
To make this possible, large volumes of data must be transmitted quickly and without interference. This applies even in free-radio environments where complex planning is required to make the most of limited free-radio frequencies.
The SMGM (Slotted Microwave Guide Mini) data communication system, which was specially developed for these applications and environments, enables the integration of absolutely interference-free data transmission. It is also specially designed to meet the increasing requirements of Industry 4.0. Communication takes place in a shielded aluminum profile, the so-called slotted microwave guide, so that no interference or any influence on other communication systems in the environment need to be taken into account. The plug and play solution can be easily integrated into all common EMS profiles and systems without extensive configurations and due to its compact design.
By combining it with the modules for energy supply (vPOWER), positioning (vPOS) and drive control (vDRIVE), it is available as a system solution. Also available is the SMG Service Tool, which allows users to analyze and, if necessary, adapt the system.
