Touchscreen Solutions for the Smart Manufacturing IioT Industry 4.0 Factory Floor

Small Monitors and Small Touchscreen Solutions for the Smart Manufacturing IioT Industry 4.0 Factory Floor

Xenarc Technologies is the leading manufacturer and supplier of human machine interface systems and small form factor ruggedized all-weather LCD touchscreen monitors, built tough to last and work anywhere, including in smart factories.    Save time and money with a solid investment that is sure to outperform any regular touchscreen monitor.  Xenarc Technologies manufactures the most crisp, colorful & high bright small touchscreen monitor solutions that are also called "control panels" or "human machine interfaces." 

Industry 4.0 is the subset of the fourth industrial revolution. The fourth industrial revolution encompasses areas which are not normally classified as an industry, such as smart cities, for instance.

Although the terms "industry 4.0" and "fourth industrial revolution" are often used interchangeably, "industry 4.0" factories have machines which are augmented with wireless connectivity, displays (HMI's), and sensors, connected to a system that can visualise the entire production line and make decisions independently.

In essence, Industry 4.0 is the trend towards automation and data exchange in manufacturing on the factory floor, including ruggedized technologies and processes such as cyber-physical systems (CPS), the internet of things (IoT), industrial internet of things (IIoT), cloud computingcognitive computing and artificial intelligence.

The concept includes:

  • Smart manufacturing
  • Smart factory
  • Lights out (manufacturing) also known as dark factories
  • Industrial internet of things, also called internet of things for manufacturing

Industry 4.0 fosters what has been called a "smart factory."  Within modular structured smart factories, cyber-physical systems monitor physical processes, create a virtual copy of the physical world and make decentralized decisions. Over the Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems communicate and cooperate with each other and with humans (through the use of Human Machine Interfaces such as LCD Touchscreens Manufactured by Xenarc Technologies) in real-time both internally and across organizational services offered and used by participants of the value chain.

Xenarc Technologies has been manufacturing ruggedized small form factor LCD touchscreen monitors in 7", 8", 9", 10", 12", 15", 18", 24" sizes with HDMI, VGA, DVI, SDI and Displayport video inputs and outputs, with ruggedized technologies, that allow our display touchscreens to work anywhere and in the harshest of environments. and work perfecty for smart factories and all of its systems and applications.

Most home or office LCD monitors would not last a day operating in extreme heat or cold temperatures, or in smart factory floors where industrial liquid might spill and hit the HMI touchscreen monitors. Variance such as changes in electricity output, vibration from other machines, dust, constant use and abuse, and many other factors are what Xenarc Technologies' LCD Monitors are built to withstand.


Components of Industry 4.0

“Industry 4.0” is an abstract and complex term consisting of many components when looking closely at current digital trends. To understand how extensive these components are, here are some contributing digital technologies as examples:

  • Mobile devices (Rugged Tablets)
  • Internet of Things (IoT) platforms
  • Location detection technologies
  • Advanced human-machine interfaces (Xenarc Technologies Ruggedized All-Weather Touchscreen Solutions)
  • Authentication and fraud detection
  • 3D printing
  • Smart sensors
  • Big data analytics and advanced algorithms
  • Multilevel customer interaction and customer profiling
  • Augmented reality/ Wearables
  • Fog, Edge and Cloud computing (Requires Rugged HMIs Manufactured By Xenarc Technologies)
  • Data visualization and triggered "real-time" training

Mainly these technologies can be summarized into four major components, defining the term “Industry 4.0” or “smart factory”:

  • Cyber-physical systems
  • IoT
  • Cloud computing
  • Cognitive computing

Xenarc Technologies can design, test and manufacture custom human machine interfaces, also known as ruggedized LCD small touchscreen and small monitor ruggedized solutions, that fit your system integration projects and applications.  Please contact a Display Engineer at Xenarc Technologies today!
