[ 1 ] Barton, D.; Gönnheimer, P.; Qu, C. & Fleischer, J. (2018), "Self-describing connected components for live information access within production systems". 4th International Conference on System-Integrated Intelligence: Intelligent, Flexible and Connected Systems in Products and Production, eds. Denkena, B.; Thoben, K. & Trächtler, A., pp. 250-257.
Access to data from components in production systems is potentially an enabler for various data-based approaches. This paper presents a practical approach to transform mechanical components into self-describing cyber-physical systems connected within a local network. The requirements for typical use cases are analysed and a modular cyber-physical connector is proposed. The data is collected by a central OPC UA client and fed into a web-based visualisation, so that it is easily accessible for operators, maintenance staff, and other stakeholders. The approach is illustrated for components with two different levels of complexity.
