Among the wealth of use cases for AI & ML in manufacturing, one rises above the rest in terms of feasibility and impact - predictive maintenance. Predictive maintenance addresses the age-old challenge of ensuring maximum availability of critical manufacturing systems.
Rittal Blue e+ cooling units are currently the most efficient of their kind on the market. Besides being 75 percent more energy-efficient than previous cooling solutions on average, the units also excel in terms of connectivity, safety and handling. What's more, their IoT interface enables Blue e+ units to link to customer-owned monitoring, energy management and/or superordinate systems via OPC-UA, Profinet, SNMP, Modbus TCP and CANopen, enabling predictive maintenance, data analytics and more.
