Availability of appropriate sensor solutions is a well-known success criterion for Industry 4.0. Some ways how it can be accomplished are discussed in this talk, for temperature, the most frequently measured process variable. New developments of non-invasive T-measurements trigger Industry 4.0 use cases with remarkable customer benefit. Embedded intelligence creates clamp-on device performances which are competitive to standard installations in many, possibly the majority, of cases. Sensing points are available at lower cost. Installation time is often reduced from months to hours. Time seems to be ready for a big technology shift, considering synergies with wireless communication and energy harvesting. Optimization and fault analysis use cases are discussed, and system proposals, resulting in various degrees of plant autonomy. Scalability of the concepts is a way to lower the entry threshold of Industry 4.0, for large corporations as well as for small and medium-sized enterprises.
