When faced with the rapid market changes brought about by Industry 4.0, basic product provision is not enough; instead, solutions to specific problems must be developed. Stand-alone display modules and box modules can be easily integrated into versatile touch panel computers to serve as control panels, industrial this clients, and industrial monitors and web terminals for diverse applications. Modular panel platforms benefit customers by enabling wide product offerings and supporting the flexible creation of new business models. Customers can assemble comprehensive portfolios that promptly address the needs of end users. Additionally, platforms with a modular design enable more easy, rapid, and comprehensive customization.

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) comprise a broad range of carbon-based chemicals, some of which are dangerous to human health and the environment. As a result, the growing interest in indoor air quality in the workplace is stimulating the development of measuring instruments for detecting VOC emissions in enclosed atmospheres, such as laboratories, semiconductor clean rooms and production line environments.

Rather than using temperature sensors to monitor temperature, distributed temperature sensor (DTS) monitoring systems use optical fibers as temperature sensing devices. With temperature sensing optical fiber cables installed in the monitored area and connected to a host computer, measurement software can be used to display real-time temperature changes. Benefiting from the advantages of optical fibers, which include being unaffected by electromagnetic interference, freely bendable, small and easy to install, and able to support detection in large areas without blind spots, DTS systems are especially suitable for high-risk, disaster prevention applications, such as power cables, oil, gas pipelines and storage tanks, and highway/railway tunnels

With continuing advancements in information and communication technology (ICT), the intelligence level of smart buildings is increasing. Using advanced construction, computing, communication and control technologies, building managers and construction companies can optimize the structure, system, service and management of buildings according to specific requirements to create an efficient, comfortable and convenient building environment. However, smart buildings typically comprise numerous systems (such as air conditioning, electricity, lighting, access control and fire detection systems) that are generally sourced from different manufacturers or system suppliers. If these systems are simply automated without integration and comprehensive coordination, the benefits of smart buildings will be difficult to achieve.
