Smart Factory Adopts IIoT Platform

Artificial intelligence (AI) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) have provided opportunities for newer “smart plants” to replace stodgy, old manufacturing systems that aren’t worth rebuilding. Not so in Kentucky. Not so at Schneider Electric. The company welcomed more than 200 customers to the brownfield facility in Lexington, which produces electrical load centers, commonly known as breaker boxes, for residences. Thousands of units come off the lines every day, but the tour focused on EcoStruxure Solutions™, a Schneider Electric IIoT platform. The company not only sells it to customers, it uses it in its own 62-year-old plant, blending old technology with new technology.
