During POC projects in the last few years, many organizations have confirmed the benefits that IIoT can bring to a wide variety of industries - and IoT spending is expected to reach $1.1 trillion by 2025, according to IDC.
Edge computing serves two main purposes: extracting signal from noise by locally processing large volumes of data that are not feasible to send across the internet and providing the ability to process specific things locally where and when latency is a concern.
Edge computing uses dedicated, on-premise resources at the shop-floor level, rather than the remote servers that cloud computing relies on. This provides a significant increase in the rate and amount of data that manufacturers can process in real-time.
Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series of linear stages have high stiffness, load, and lifetime capabilities in a compact size. The integrated linear encoder combined with stage calibration provides high accuracy positioning over the full travel of the device. At 36 mm high, these stages are excellent for applications where a low profile is required. The X-LRQ-DE's innovative design allows speeds up to 205 mm/s and loads up to 100 kg. Like all Zaber products, the X-LRQ-DE Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
