"The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a wave of innovation that turns machinery into intelligent equipment through cloud-networked sensors and software. IIoT has the potential to become one of the biggest drivers of global productivity in the next decade as machines, technology and humans further integrate and unleash an unprecedented level of efficiency. The pump sector is well-positioned to reap the rewards of what many are calling the Fourth Industrial Revolution."

"The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a business buzzword. But asking 10 people for a definition of IIoT will likely result in 10 different answers. Additionally, many may think IIoT refers to connecting people with machines, instead of a connected process. This concept goes beyond basic process management to informing and educating people on what is happening in a process. Further, some people who mention machines often think of industrial applications, such as packaging or conveying equipment. Pumping systems and pumping applications are often left out of the discussion."

IIoT and the Smart Grid Connection

"The concepts and technologies encompassed by the term “Internet of Things” are rapidly changing the world. Sometimes called “Industry 4.0” or the “Industrial Internet,” it is the idea that manufacturers will be able to connect everything in their operations, allowing information to be easily exchanged and enabling more autonomous plants."

Air Compressor Control for Industry 4.0

Compressed Air Best Practices, Nov. 2015, by Clinton Shaffer.

"We are in the midst of the fourth industrial revolution, or, as it is known in Germany, Industry 4.0. In broad terms, the concept describes manufacturing facilities where all of the machines — including the air compressors, along with their corresponding sensors and air treatment equipment — communicate with each other autonomously, recording performance metrics to a local controller, a wireless network, and an external database. These communicative abilities are enabled by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), in which intelligent, networked devices link everything back to a main data hub."

Controlling Networks of Microgrids Over the Industrial Internet

Solar Industry, Oct. 2015, by Lynne Canavan.

"The application of existing technologies to energy distribution will enable real-time control of renewable energy sources. With the introduction of smart power grids, all sectors of the energy industry are on the verge of a seismic shift. The enabling technologies of big data, data analytics and predictive maintenance are creating the industrial Internet that will make renewable energy assets responsive to demands in near real time."
