Cooperating drives

Turning drives into Industry 4.0 components

Electric drives are the core components in industrial production. In order to implement the digital twin of electric drives as Industry 4.0 components, a uniform, manufacturer-independent data provision based on international standards plays a special role in the management shell.

The Drive 4.0 demonstrator shows the interaction of drives from eight different manufacturers and their management shells and drives the further development of submodels. Furthermore, the installation shows how Industry 4.0 drives provide additional functions in a standardised and thus uniform manner, for example an oscilloscope for power and efficiency analysis.

Function of the Asset Administration Shell

Optimal tuning of functionality through the AAS

Uniform data structures

The AAS enables the integration of standardised sub-models and thus realises interoperability between different manufacturers.

Plug & Produce

The AAS eliminates the need for complex adaptations and enables machines to be designed modularly according to the specific requirements of the end user.

Standardised functions

Standardised functions reduce the need to create and maintain additional functionalities, enabling products to be put into operation without any training time.
