The power-to-weight ratio (also mass-to-power ratio) is a common parameter in the specification of vehicles and engines. This specification is not known for industrial computers, but nevertheless the weight plays an important role as soon as they are used in „moving“ applications. Not only the dead weight, but also the resulting inertial forces lead to enormous additional expenses.

Seamless production sits at the core of every company‘s operations. If production stops, due to an error for example, a quick response is required. But what if the specialist for the plant is not on site? Thanks to digitalisation, the magic words in this case are often remote maintenance. Estimates assume that up to 60 percent of errors can be resolved or at least supported via remote access. Weidmüller‘s u-link remote access service offers a system that is easy to install, easy to configure...
