Intelligent wiring creates transparency
A white paper from Eaton provides a description of how machine operating costs can be reduced and productivity increased with a device-level, intelligent wiring and communication system.
The suggested solution allows both complex, smart automation components and simple devices - such as instruction and reporting units, manual motor starters, circuit breakers and sensors - to be integrated into the communication system of a machine to offer data transparency down to the smallest machine component. The whitepaper offers real-life examples to demonstrate the benefits.
Along with increasing the machine’s overall capacity use, the solution is said to reduce downtime through the use of predictive maintenance and servicing and diagnostics, all of which can be carried out more simply and quickly.
According to Eaton, an intelligent wiring system can provide a reduction, of up to 30% reduction in the life cycle costs of an electrical installation, from project design to servicing and maintenance.
