Okay, maybe that last example isn’t quite as familiar as the first two, but the merging of OT and IT has been an ongoing transformation since the Industrial Internet of Things took off, and together, they make a great pair with a host of benefits.
SICK products are a prime example of this perfect pairing, sporting an integration of networked sensors and software with complex physical machinery. Check it out:
- Fluid Sensors: these measure level, pressure, temperature and flow.
- Photoelectric Sensors: designed to detect nearly any object in any environment and optimize setup and performance.
- Encoder and Inclination Sensors: used for path, position and angle measurements and precise position detection in industrial automation
That’s just the tip of the iceberg, too! SICK offers a whole lineup of products featuring technology that uses data generated from equipment to optimize the manufacturing process. These devices can monitor conditions remotely, predict problems, measure process variables, and more, thus ensuring your machines and lines remain up and running. As a result, efficiency, productivity and performance increase while costs and downtime decrease.
When you consider all that, it’s easy to see why the combination of OT and IT is right up there with the popularity of PB & J!

You and Kundinger – another great pair!
