Private Wireless to Industrial Devices

April 27, 2023
Nokia’s connected industrial system analyzes data and drives real-time insights.

At Hannover Messe, Nokia demonstrated its four-step approach to digitizing industrial machinery. The system gets real-time data from the machine, provides workers with information, transforms the data into smart insights and enables remote control and full machine automation using augmented reality.

The example at the show was a pumping system. The tanks were equipped with several digital sensorsincluding temperature, level and pressureand a PLC controlled all of them. Nokia also used its private 4G wireless technology to connect the system.

“We were able to add the other sensors that would typically not be able to be done over a PLC,” said Stephane Daeuble, head of marketing, Enterprise Solutions at Nokia. “For example, this IR camera that monitors the tank A temperature, or even the situational awareness camera.”

Daeuble also demonstrated a tablet that scanned a QR code on the machine. Then, the tablet used augmented reality (AR) to show was changes needed to be made to mitigate a given issue.
