Industrie 4.0

Creates Value Networks

 "Industrie 4.0" stands for the complete digitisation and integration of the industrial value chain. The combining of information and communication technology with automation technology to form the Internet of things and services allows increasingly higher degrees of networking in and between production facilities, from the suppliers to the customers.

This goes hand in hand with the digitisation of the product and service offering, which makes new business models possible. Ultimately, Industrie 4.0 is the realisation of the smart factory in the digital value network.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Sustainability and the circular economy, including the associated decision-making criteria, are already a relevant topic today and are likely to become even more important in the near future. In this context, the topic of sustainability is fraught with great uncertainty, as the details and possible implementations in this area are not clear and can hardly be outlined. For example, the declaration of the Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) will become one of many new regulatory requirements of the European Union under the Sustainable Products Initiative (SPI) as part of the Green Deal. Following on from this, industry in all sectors will probably be required to provide certain product information in the form of a Digital Product Passport (DPP).

ZVEI joins the Hannover Messe's leading topic and shows how the electrical and digital sector is paving the way to a climate-neutral industry.

DC-INDUSTRIE system concept shows feasibility of DC systems

CO2-neutral industry is a central basis for the transformation to a climate-neutral society. An important contribution to this is the supply of factories and plants with direct current. DC-INDUSTRIE describes an open system for the efficient integration of renewable energies with reduced energy requirements for sustainable production.

The system concept describes how companies can use the advantages of direct current technology. We would like to present this to you.

Automation and sustainability

The lever to a climate-friendly future lies in comprehensive electrification and digitization. On the road to a sustainable economy, the innovative automation industry has an important role to play. Digital transformation in automation provides the basis for greater resilience, flexibility and sustainability in production. In the past, the ZVEI Automation Division has shown impressive examples of how this path is to be taken. Major CO2 savings have been achieved, for example, with developments in the DC-INDUSTRIE direct current research project and the digital nameplate.
