Abstract

The departure from the current automation landscape to next generation automation concepts for the process industry has already begun. Smart functions of sensors simplify their use and enable plug-and-play integration, even though they may appear to be more complex at first sight. Smart sensors enable concepts like self-diagnostics, self-calibration, and self-configuration/parameterization whenever our current automation landscape allows it. Here we summarize the currently discussed general requirements for process sensors 4.0 and introduce a smart online NMR sensor module as example, which was developed for an intensified industrial process funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (www.consens-spire.eu).
Keywords: smart sensors; intensified processes; sustainable production; reaction monitoring; NMR spectroscopy; Industry 4.0; Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT); continuous manufacturing smart sensors; intensified processes; sustainable production; reaction monitoring; NMR spectroscopy; Industry 4.0; Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT); continuous manufacturing
