THE MACHINE CONTROL ARCHITECTURE THAT ADAPTS TO EVER CHANGING MARKET REQUIREMENTS IN THE IOT ERA

These success stories seek to highlight the industry-level challenges faced, the resulting automation and motion control requirements that need to be addressed, the results that can be achieved and the key platform strategy that allows customers to distinguish themselves in the worldwide market.

IO-LINK TECHNOLOGY: CAPABILITIES, LIMITATIONS AND BENEFITS FOR AUTOMATED SYSTEMS

From parameter storage to detailed diagnostics, IO-Link’s advanced features and functionality have generated plenty of excitement. However, this intensive focus has created the common misconception that advanced capabilities are the only reasons to implement this technology.

FIELD LOGIC CONTROLLERS: THE NEXT GENERATION OF CONTROL

Since the 1960s, programmable logic controllers (PLCs) have been the device of choice for automating and controlling machine operation, making them the head of automated processes. In recent years, engineers have started asking why they need to invest in a PLC. The devices can be expensive, require dedicated software and often mean additional panel and wiring expenses. Is a PLC and its cost really the best option for an application that may only need to control dozens rather than hundreds of I/O points?

ELEVATING ETHERNET INTELLIGENCE: IMPLEMENTING ETHERNET TECHNOLOGY IN INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS

Manufacturers are faced with the constant demand to increase productivity and reduce operating costs. A powerful industrial tool being implemented today to streamline production is reliable, enterprise-wide connectivity, providing the highest level of visibility, control and flexibility. To accommodate evolving networking requirements, such as decentralization of control, integrated diagnostics and simplified maintenance, network protocols integrate with industrial equipment and control systems to communicate crucial status updates and production data.

SMART FACTORIES, DUMB POLICY? MANAGING CYBERSECURITY AND DATA PRIVACY RISKS IN THE INDUSTRIAL INTERNET OF THINGS

In a new paper, Shackelford examines the cyber risk in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), including security implications in the smart factory revolution and associated policy implications. Although there has been progress in some areas (e.g., making attacks on civilian critical infrastructure, like smart factories, off limits), there is still much to be done. There are several options to consider for IIoT: self-regulation/cyber due diligence, insurance and/or proposed federal policies, like the IoT Cybersecurity Act of 2017, Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights and the Active Cyber Defense Certainty Act.
