Cyber-Physical Technology for Pharma 4.0

Cyber-Physical Technology for Pharma 4.0 - BinMaster - BulkInside - level measurement
3 Jan 2024  |
Cyber-physical technology--like BinMaster inventory sensors and IoT software--drives Pharma 4.0 philosophies to proactively protect processing and monitoring systems from cyber-attacks.

Pharma 4.0 embraces automation, autonomous, and decentralized ecosystems. It calls for the Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber-Physical Technology (CPT), and Artificial Intelligence (AI). CPT­—like BinMaster inventory sensors and software—to integrate smart devices with cloud software. Bulk inventory systems monitor, control, and secure physical processes.

Radar sensors, for example, continuously measure level data from storage silos and processing tanks with great accuracy. The sensors transmit data to the BinCloud® inventory management platform in the cloud. An administrator controls access to the system and defines user privileges including what data they can view, change, or report to protect the integrity of cloud inventory.

Meeting sanitary requirements

Pharmaceutical require adherence to ingredient quality standards and precise control over expensive ingredients. BinMaster offers level sensors to comply with FDA requirements, and meet hygienic, CIP, or clean-in-place requirements to reduce the risk of contamination and prevent out-of-spec batches.

Miniature capacitance probes measure levels in smaller, tight spaces like pipelines, hoppers, and containers. Compact non-contact radars measure vessel heights up to 98 feet for ingredient and process tanks or mixers. BinMaster’s NCR-80 radar excels in storage and processing silos with challenging dust, noise, and environmental conditions.

Improved workplace efficiency

Features of BinCloud include real-time monitoring, automated alerts via text or email, and historical reports. Software is used to manage a single site or across multiple locations and hundreds of vessels. Data is updated continuously and automatically in a seamless, secure environment.

Introducing technology is risky. According to Forbes, 70 percent of organizational transformations fail due to poor communication or lack of team buy-in. BinMaster tackled these challenges years ago with BinCloud® software which unleashes people from cubicles and prompts collaboration on an IoT platform. The process is safe and secure. Machines labor, while people analyze data.
