How to simulate product quality checks using IIoT light barrier sensors
Product quality checks are an essential part of industrial manufacturing. To look at each item manually does not scale well, therefore factories outputting large quantities of products use IIoT sensors. We show how to combine Phoenix Contact’s light barrier sensor data with product barcode data to detect anomalies in the manufacturing process.
