Höntzsch GmbH & Co. KG and wobe-systems GmbH are entering into a strategic partnership to jointly develop an industrial “Internet of Things” (IoT) solution for Industry 4.0. This solution combines a manufacturer-independent networking of sensors as well as the possibility of retrofitting them to existing systems.
Höntzsch flow sensors can be easily and quickly integrated into the digital network of the industry with the Open Source Integrationsplattform titan from wobe-systems. With universal adapters, the integration of any analog sensors is possible.
“The in-depth partnership with wobe-systems drives our digital transformation and is just a small step from the existing system to Industry 4.0,” says Dr. Michael Blaschke, Head of Development at Höntzsch.
wobe-systems founder and managing director Maik Wojcieszak explains: “Our No-Code Plattform titan connects machines, actuators and sensors with the industrial Internet of Things. This is the basis for an optimal value chain in the production of the smart factory.”
Höntzsch, based in Waiblingen, Germany, is the specialist for the development, manufacturing and distribution of innovative products for flow measurement technology. Since 1976 and with representatives in 25 countries, the focus here is on high quality standards and metrological precision. Höntzsch sensors are used in applications with extreme requirements, e.g. in explosive areas, in aggressive media, in gases with temperatures up to 550 °C, at high flow velocities up to 200 m/s or in pipe flows with changing gas composition or flow direction. Höntzsch is a member of the DKD and has an ISO 17025 accredited calibration laboratory at the highest level. www.hoentzsch.com
