Today’s ‘smart sensors’ are an integral part of Industry 4.0 and vital components in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), providing connectivity and interaction within machines and other network devices. Often, they are combined with other hardware such as computers, cameras and switches to provide users with greater insights and analysis. Modern sensors are equipped with IO-links where the system check if the sensor works in a healthy way and alarm any type of error.
