How mobile digital solutions benefit industry
September 2018, IT in Manufacturing


The networking of people, processes, machines, and systems will not just shape the markets of the future, it is the biggest challenge and opportunity of today’s world. Companies that make use of the possibilities of digitalisation will benefit from more effective production, work and maintenance processes, as well as streamlined decision-making that leads to higher margins. However, to exploit the productivity and profitability made possible by Industrie 4.0, no single component is crucial; rather, an integrated, compatible portfolio of solutions based around the networked ‘mobile worker’ is required. At last year’s Hannover Messe, ecom, part of the Pepperl+Fuchs Group and a manufacturer of explosion-protected mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, handhelds, and peripherals, presented its comprehensive Mobile Worker Concept alongside a large selection of hardware and partner-software products for industrial companies.

The newest devices for use in Zone 1/21, an explosion protected 4G/LTE Android tablet Tab-Ex 01, a 4G/LTE Android smartphone Smart Ex 01, plus the Windows Tablet PC and Desktop expansion Pad-Ex 01, connect mobile users with the control centre and back-end systems. These devices mean that a variety of powerful applications can be used anywhere onsite, including hazardous areas. Professional software solutions for data acquisition such as the ecom CamScan Keyboard app allow users to increase the quality of data acquisition. Designed especially for frequent scans, and for scans from a distance, ecom offers various hardware-based solutions from the barcode/RFID reader Ident-Ex 01 to the intrinsically safe PDA i.roc Ci70 -Ex. The company has also taken advantage of new fields of innovation through beacon technology. The Loc-Ex 01 BLE Beacons, which were developed especially for hazardous areas, are used together with mobile devices, resulting in an innovative business intelligence and localisation solution.
