Robotic learning factory donated to University College Dublin
Maxim has donated an automated football factory demo to University College Dublin, which is intended to give engineering students experience with Industry 4.0 technology.

The demo features several of Maxim’s adaptive manufacturing technologies, including the new Go-IO industrial internet of things (IIoT) reference design. Go-IO IIoT uses Maxim’s third-generation industrial automation chipset with 12 integrated ICs, 17 IOs supporting multiple digital IO configurations, a 4-channel IO-Link master for a universal IO interface to both analogue and digital sensors and a 25Mbps isolated RS-485 communications channel.

The football factory demo replicates an Industry 4.0 factory that is locally controlled by a PLC driving intelligent sensors, which enables real-time decision-making to optimise productivity. The small, distributed PLC network and IO-Link-enabled sensors allow assembly line changes at a local level in real time.

The assembly line is controlled wirelessly by an iPad app.
