STW Announces a Whitepaper on Internet of Things for Off Highway

As IoT (Internet of Things) begins to manifest its promise in the Off Highway industry, it has become imperative for manufacturers and end users to develop a practical strategy and implementation roadmap for maximizing benefits from IoT. This whitepaper, based on STW's work with several companies in the field, highlights an implementation roadmap, strategy recommendation and an overview of the various options, architectures and technologies.

As the Internet of Things begins to manifest its potential in several industries, it has become imperative for manufacturers of Mobile Machines for Off Highway to create a strategy to maximize the benefits of IoT. The latest whitepaper from STW, a premier provider for mobile automation, connectivity and electrification solutions, addresses this need by providing a useful road map and best practices for implementing IoT for Off Highway machines.

In recent years, every manufacturer of Off Highway working vehicles has become aware of the importance of connectivity and data management, and the rapid evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT). These topics cover a broad range of functions, technologies and challenges. Titled ‘Mobile Machines and Off Highway IoT - or Ive Looked at Clouds from Both Sides Now the white paper organizes and addresses these issues to assist manufacturers in developing an IoT strategy.
Connectivity and data management technology (IoT) may be added on a vehicle as original equipment by an OEM, or it may be added as an after-market capability by distributors or fleet owners to meet their needs.
The whitepaper includes a roadmap for developing an IoT strategy, an overview of available technologies, and recommendations for optimal architecture and connectivity.
In the world of mobile machinery IoT, there are three general categories of stakeholders and they may have very different perspectives and needs. : Manufacturers or OEMs, Distributors, Dealerships, Fleet Owners, Rental Companies and End User. The white paper covers use cases for all three stake holders.

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
