IIoT in the chemical industry drives performance

Unlock the full potential of field instrumentation to increase productivity and reduce shutdowns

IoT in the chemical industry remains an untapped source of competitive edge, despite relentless competitive pressures and stringent safety and compliance regulations. With the right know-how this Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), an ecosystem of connected devices, can deliver significant efficiency improvements to production processes. From precise data to actionable insights, Endress+Hauser technologies and expertise can unlock this potential for any chemical plant.

How we can help

The chemical industry is characterized by intense competition, nevertheless many plant operators are yet to fully explore the benefits hidden in the vast quantities of data produced by their field instrumentation. Comprising various IoT applications and algorithms, the Endress+Hauser Netilion ecosystem allows customers to turn field data into actionable insights for efficiency improvements, bypassing the automation pyramid.

  • Gain in-depth insights into your installed base and make better data-driven decisions to optimize maintenance, production, operations and supply chain

  • Create digital twins automatically via edge devices with a simple plug-and-play system, no need to touch your DCS

  • Solve unexpected instrumentation errors remotely with your tablet or smartphone


Connect field instrumentation data to the cloud

Connectivity is the medium through which all information is exchanged and is thus vital for digitalization. It opens up unparalleled new possibilities for driving performance and safety, and yet can be complex to implement across the installed base.

Edge devices enable connectivity and digitalization by connecting instruments to the cloud
