The P2X Concept

Power-to-X describes the conversion of renewable energies into hydrogen and hydrogen-based, synthetic fuels and base materials. In combination with smart energy grids, this enables the use of renewable energies such as solar and wind energy even when they are not available. Furthermore, the technology also allows use in transport sectors such as aviation and long-haul shipping, where direct use of electricity is not expected to be possible in the future.

Power-to-X therefore is seen as a key technology on the path to the energy transition in the medium and long term.

Our value-added solutions for Power-to-X

Predictive maintenance for Electrolysis and Fuel Cells

Industrial Analytics

The Industrial Analytics offering from Weidmüller stands for application-oriented AI applications to help you detect and classify anomalies, thereby effectively reducing downtimes. Through predictive maintenance, you can plan service intervals in a targeted manner as and when required. What’s more, you can make reliable predictions with regard to the quality of your products (predictive quality), based on seamless recordings of sensor, condition and process data. You decide whether you want to work with our experienced data scientists and jointly design solutions or whether you want to use the Automated Machine Learning Tool to independently exploit the advantages of artificial intelligence.

Predictive maintenance for Electrolysis and Fuel Cells
Your special advantages
  • Local or in the cloud - 100% security for your data. With our cross-platform Industrial Analytics solutions, you can decide for yourself how you want to use your data. Our services work on all standard cloud solutions, such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services and IBM Cloud. They can also be used "on premises" on internal servers or directly on the machine
  • Complete solutions from a single source - We will help you to design an optimal data infrastructure and to select the perfect sensors and components. Our analytics modules are tailored to your use cases in order to adapt the computing capacity and data transmission in line with your existing IT environments.

Decentralized control & operation stations

Industrial IoT Solutions - „From data to value“

Our comprehensive and cutting-edge IIoT portfolio applies for both, greenfield and brownfield applications. We offer components and solutions from data acquisition, data pre-processing, data communication and data analysis. One thing is clear: the Industrial IoT is not an end in itself. The added value is exploited in the specific use case, whether this is increasing the energy efficiency or deploying service technicians more efficiently thanks to remote maintenance. And last but not least, we enable our customers to develop new business models by using artificial intelligence. Let's design the Industrial IoT easily and efficiently together - with using our experience and expertise from renewable plant and EX applications.

Decentralized control & operation stations
Your special advantages
  • Easy - Whether easy and fast retrofit of IoT solutions, open and web based engineering or the building of machine learning models without any data science skills – discover the easy way to the Industrial IoT.
  • End to End - From „data to value“: with our comprehensive and cutting-edge IIoT portfolio we enable our customers to go from sensor to cloud and beyond: data acquisition, data preprocessing and data communication form the infrastructure which the data analysis is based on.
