The trend is for sensor enterprises to seize the industrial interconnection highland, and cross domain integration cooperation

the report on the evolution and investment value of China's industrial interconnection industry in 2018 released by CCID Consulting recently shows that the scale of China's industrial interconnection market reached 47.91 billion yuan in 2017, with a year-on-year increase of 13.6%, and the growth rate is ahead of the global industrial interconnection market. Sensors are the foundation and core of industrial interconnection and the key component of automatic intelligent equipment. The vigorous development of industrial interconnection will bring great opportunities to sensor enterprises

industrial interconnection brings a huge market to sensor enterprises

with reference to the stages of industry 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, artificial intelligence 1.0, 2.0 and so on, industrial interconnection can be divided into three stages, and then delete those words that have no query meaning and may appear in every document: Industrial interconnection 1.0, through the construction of a network connection system based on IP technology, realize the connection between the factory it network and ot network, and between enterprises outside the factory and upstream and downstream, intelligent products User's network connection; Industrial interconnection 2.0, through industrial data acquisition technology, realizes the upload and aggregation of detailed data of products, equipment, raw materials, industrial chain and so on, laying the foundation for industrial interconnection platform and industrial app; Industrial interconnection 3.0 realizes the intelligent seamless connection between the physical world and the digital world through artificial intelligence and edge computing technology. Shi Zhenshan, deputy Institute of comprehensive technical and Economic Research Institute of machinery industry instruments and meters, said, "Most of China's industrial enterprises are still in the process of industrial interconnection 1.0 or moving towards it. A small number of leading enterprises are exploring and practicing industrial interconnection 2.0, and individual enterprises have begun to layout the research of industrial interconnection 3.0. The requirements for sensors are different at different stages of the development of industrial interconnection, and the industrial enterprises of sensors and sensing systems also need to be accurately positioned, not only to see the blue ocean brought by the development of industrial interconnection to the development of the sensor industry It is more important to tap the effective market and realize the final output value and profit. "

Ren Hongjun, chairman of Hanwei Technology Group Co., Ltd., told China Electronics News that sensors are not only the core components of industrial automation intelligent devices, but also the basis and source of industrial interconnection data collection, analysis and utilization

The sensor market report for industrial interconnection published by


takes factory automation, building automation, smart electricity, public transportation and other important application fields of industrial interconnection. They predict that the sensor consumption in this field will exceed 20billion US dollars by 2019. "It can be seen that the rapid development of industrial interconnection has brought explosive growth to sensor enterprises. This trend is also reflected in the business of Hanwei group. Since the second half of last year, our sensors have been in short supply, and some sensor orders have been scheduled for the second half of this year." Ren Hongjun said

domestic sensor enterprises should make up for their shortcomings through cross field cooperation

Zhang Xinguo, Secretary General of Chongqing automation and instrumentation Association and director of the intelligent manufacturing technology training demonstration base of China instrumentation society, said that after the concept of IOT was put forward, the application scenarios of sensors have been expanded a lot, especially the demand for sensors in intelligent manufacturing and artificial intelligence is very large, The development of industrial interconnection brings a new opportunity to domestic sensor enterprises, including pressure, temperature, humidity, flow, liquid level and other sensor enterprises, which will usher in new opportunities

facing the opportunity, Shi Zhenshan raised his concerns. He pointed out that the basic technical indicators such as sensitivity, stability and reliability of the sensor, economic indicators such as low power and long-term training project consumption and low cost, as well as networking and informatization indicators such as digitalization, networking, integration and intelligence, will directly affect the high-quality development of the sensor industry. At present, domestic sensors can meet the requirements of the middle and low-end market of industrial interconnection, but high-end sensors are monopolized by foreign countries. For example, more than 80% of the domestic market of 1million high-precision intelligent pressure differential pressure sensors/transmitters are foreign brands. Although several five-year plans have deployed scientific and technological breakthroughs, the problem of large-scale industrialization has not been fully solved. "In the era of industrial interconnection 2.0, sensor applications cover a wider range, and there are higher requirements for the cost, quantity, reliability and industrialization of sensors. The problems of small-scale and insufficient innovation ability of China's sensor industry enterprises will become more prominent." He said anxiously

Ren Hongjun told China Electronics News that industrial interconnection brings opportunities to sensor enterprises on the one hand, and on the other hand, it also puts forward new requirements for sensors, mainly reflected in higher requirements for sensitivity, stability, robustness and so on. At the same time, the popularity of industrial interconnection makes sensors everywhere. The extensive use of sensors requires lightweight, low power consumption and low cost. At the same time, it also requires networking, integration and intelligence. From the perspective of sensor applications and varieties, domestic sensors can meet the requirements of most scenarios of industrial interconnection. Most of the pressure, temperature, position and other sensors in industrial sites are produced by a large number of domestic manufacturers, and some sensors with special applications and high reliability requirements are also inclined to be imported. However, in general, networking, integration and intelligence are still relatively primary, and technological progress needs to be accelerated. High end sensors used in aviation, aerospace and other fields are also independently supplied in China, but most of these technologies are controlled by scientific research institutes. Small batch production is no problem, and they have not yet entered the stage of large-scale industrialization. In addition, the application of industrial interconnection sensors involves a wider range, and there is a greater demand for the number and industrialization of sensors. At present, the domestic sensor industry still has the problems of small enterprise scale and insufficient innovation ability, and there is still a lot of gap to fully meet the needs of industrial interconnection. The embargo on core chips in the recent Sino US trade friction has also sounded an alarm for our sensor and application industry. Sensors, like integrated circuit chips, are key components with high-tech content. If domestic enterprises do not strengthen independent innovation, they will face a similar situation in the future

"only by accelerating independent innovation, forming industry leaders, and promoting technology integration in related fields, can we quickly promote the development of the sensor industry and meet the needs of industrial interconnection for sensors." Ren Hongjun said that cross domain integrated cooperation will be the future development trend. A few days ago, Hanwei technology and Shenzhou Taiyue signed the strategic cooperation framework agreement to jointly establish the "industrial Interconnection Joint Laboratory". Hanwei technology's sensors are independent intellectual property rights in terms of design, materials and process technology. The industrial scale and technical level of gas sensors in many categories have entered the international leading ranks, with a domestic market share of more than 75%, forming a leading position one by one. 1. Changing the experimental machine or heavy parts and components should be convenient for lifting and installation, which can provide strong support for the large-scale application of gas sensors in industrial interconnection. Taking the underground comprehensive pipe gallery as the starting point of cooperation, the two sides combine the positioning and communication technology of Shenzhou Taiyue intelligent line with the leading sensing and detection technology of Hanwei technology, and realize the integration of physical infrastructure and information infrastructure through the built-in leading IOT platform that integrates sensing, acquisition, transmission and convergence, so as to provide customers with more accurate, reliable, perceptual and controllable intelligent services

Shi Zhenshan believes that technological innovation and business model innovation are the most basic and fundamental propositions of industrial technological innovation. The traditional innovation mode of single field, single soldier breakthrough and single handedness is becoming a thing of the past. Cross field and integrated manufacturing collaborative innovation begins to appear, and accelerates its continuous evolution in depth, which is bound to become the mainstream mode of manufacturing innovation in the future. The cooperation between Shenzhou Taiyue and Hanwei technology, the cooperation between Weian tester and Chongqing Telecom nb-iot, and the establishment of the sensing industry working committee led by Huawei are all beneficial explorations to promote the development of smart sensors and the deep integration of China's industrial interconnection. This cooperation is very helpful to open up the whole industrial chain of data collection, data transmission and data application, accelerate the growth of new production factors such as data, information and knowledge, and bring great and new benefits to customers. In the development of integration, sensor and communication technology will also be redefined

"in the future, there will be more innovative cooperation modes of multi industry integration such as Hanwei technology and Shenzhou Taiyue in the field of industrial interconnection, which will change the concept of sensors. Sensors are not only hardware, but also the creator of data, but also the creator of services." Ren Hongjun stressed

Zhang Guoxin believes that there are many ways for enterprises to cooperate, and there are many kinds of sensors. The foundation that can apply a lot of knowledge to sensors is laid down at that time, and using them in various fields is the most desired result of sensor enterprises
