Event catch up: Controls, Sensors and Digitalisation Virtual Conference
The use of sensors to capture live plant data is becoming more common place in the foundation industries, but there is still a large amount of untapped potential.
Presentations and discussions explored what data capture is still required, how it could be captured, and how it can be used most efficiently to increase resource and energy efficiency.
This topic included all stages of a production process, covering the use of sensor technology to data storage and management, and controls and process hardware, such as drives and burners, to fully embed digitalisation within the foundation industries and move towards automated process management.
