Why Combining Your HMI & PLC Is the Smarter Move
While PLCs control mechanisms, electronics, and other low-level devices, HMIs empower operators with visualization and touch controls. Together, HMIs and PLCs pave the way for efficient and flexible industrial workflows.
Linux-based Software for Automation
Linux has a lot to offer the automation industry. It is a stable and scalable alternative to Windows operating systems that allows for arguably greater connectivity between devices and systems.
Understanding the Common Vulnerability Scoring System
The common vulnerability scoring system (CVSS) provides manufacturers a way to assess the principal characteristics of a vulnerability and produce a numerical score reflecting its severity.
Control & Automation with Vision™ V700 for Packaging & Bagging Systems
When a major producer and packager of balanced feed for livestock such as poultry, swine, and horses, house pets, and fish farming needs turned to them for a an efficient, fast, and reliable packaging solution, IGCP Engineering turned to Unitronics.
What is the definition of "PLC"?
A Programmable Logic Controller, or PLC, is a ruggedized computer used for industrial automation. These controllers can automate a specific process, machine function, or even an entire production line.
Effect of PCI Devices on Automation Systems
Industry 4.0 is changing systems architecture across all domains in industrial automation. Upcoming edge computing architectures use virtualization for scaling dedicated applications with deterministic key performance indicators (KPIs) on a heterogeneous operating systems.
Understanding the Basics of PLCs
PLCs are special computers designed to control industrial processes and machines. Software PLCs offer great communications functionality through communicating with other computer equipment or controllers.

Zaber LC40 Non Motorized Linear Stage Gantry Systems
A Zaber gantry kit comes with everything you need to build a customized XY gantry system or XYZ gantry system. These gantry systems feature coordinated multi-axis motion, plug-and-play operation, easy integration with end-effector options, and built-in IO and E-Stop capabilities. An intuitive ASCII interface allows the user to easily communicate with the gantry systems using our free software, either Zaber Motion Library with APIs for several popular languages or Zaber Console. Third party terminal programs that can communicate over a serial port can also be used.
