Industrial Ethernet and wireless growing steadily – first year of decline for fieldbuses in terms of new nodes -  Industrial network market shares 2019 according to HMS

More and more industrial equipment is being connected to industrial networks. In 2019, the number of new connected nodes is expected to grow by 10%. Industrial Ethernet and Wireless continue to grow fast, but 2019 also marks the first year of fieldbus decline. These are the main findings in the annual study of the industrial network market by HMS Networks. Industrial Ethernet now accounts for 59% of new installed nodes (52% last year), while fieldbuses are on 35% (42). EtherNet/IP is still the most widely installed network at 15%, but PROFINET is closing in at 14%. Wireless technologies continue to develop strongly and are steady at 6% of the market (6).

Leuze

Efficient and process-controlled access guarding without muting sensors

Innovative strength, a down-to-earth culture and strong commitment are the values that have made WITRON – based in the Upper Palatinate region of Germany – the company that it is today: worldwide one of the market leaders in the planning and realization of highly dynamic warehouse and order picking systems in the field of intralogistics. WITRON is constantly working on developing even better, even more cost-efficient logistics solutions for its customers, to make them even more successful. In the area of automation and further optimization of warehouse logistics, the selection of suitable, competent and innovative partners also plays a decisive role for WITRON. WITRON relies on creative solutions from Leuze electronic not only in its own production and warehouse logistics. The company also realizes efficient safety solutions for its customers together with optical sensor manufacturer Leuze electronic. This includes the use of "Smart Process Gating" (SPG), a process developed by Leuze electronic that enables access guarding with material transport to be designed more compactly, simpler and safer.

Leuze

An innovation from Leuze electronic: the dual channel principle – but what does that actually mean?

The rise of digitization also means that known processes and procedures are subject to change. Standards that have been valid and established thus far are now under examination, done away with entirely, or may need to be adapted. In many regards, there is a sense that the world is becoming increasingly complex, thus requiring a new level of expertise and strategies to successfully master the challenges of the future. For this reason, Leuze electronic is developing smart sensors to optimize the production processes of its customers and increase the productivity of their systems and machines.
