  • USB: Adaptable for Industrial Applications
    The Universal Serial Bus (USB) provides a high data rate and Hot Swap connection for PCs, providing an easy connection to a wide variety of multimedia and network USB devices. Generally considered to be for home or office use, USB is finding its way into Industrial applications.
  • A Case Study in Industrial WiFi
    WiFi has become a popular choice for connecting industrial devices. It is a well-established, mature technology that offers close integration with existing Ethernet networks. However, the issues that face an industrial system integrator are quite different from the issues encountered in a typical
  • Ethernet Is Moving Out of the Office Into Harsh Industrial Environments
    Ethernet is an ideal medium to transport large volumes of data, at speed, across great distances. Previously, multiple networks carrying specific protocols were installed side by side to carry out unique tasks. This inevitably led to project costs increasing as additional fiber optic or copper
  • New ideas in Industrial Automation
    communication among individuals, devices, and equipment across the factory floor and throughout the company. The EtherNet/IP protocol uses standard, unmodified Ethernet and the same Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) used in DeviceNet. CIP delivers real-time I/O and drive control, information
  • Industrial Ethernet made practical
    Divide and conquer is the strategy for devising factory Ethernets that work reliably. One example of a device now available for use on industrial Ethernets is the Compumotor 6K Controller. The multiaxis motion controller has a programmable IP address to allow use of several on the same Ethernet
  • Adding Ethernet and Value to Industrial Devices
    For serial device manufacturers, adopting Ethernet support is no longer an option. The future of work is networked, and this is true whether you are working in an office or on a factory floor. Serial device manufacturers have a golden opportunity to put their existing portfolios of valuable devices
  • An Introduction to Industrial Ethernet Connection Systems
    Unlike traditional office settings, Ethernet has spread into environments where protection from noise, solids, liquids and even gases is of concern. Manufacturing equipment and automated test environments are just some of the more common areas where standard RJ45 based connectors do not offer
  • The Embedded PC: Solution for Industrial Control
    Computers are everywhere as they have migrated from the office and become embedded into industrial control applications. This transition has been driven by PC technology. This technology makes it possible to leverage widely available industrial-grade hardware and the vast software infrastructure
