Overview

Industrial electric motor systems used in production consume more than 60% of industrial electricity in the United States, which results in 700 billion kWh at a cost of $50 billion per year. Many products and technologies exist to help lower the energy usage of these motors. This presentation will discuss some of these options and provide methods to determine the best choice for your application. Learn More

Overview

Tomorrow's industrial automation systems will require autonomous mobile robots able to "sense, think, and act in the complex real world around them." This capability, in turn, demands software that is not unique to a particular robot or task, is open to incorporate existing algorithms, and is powerful enough to solve problems not yet anticipated. Industrial-grade, hardened, and richly-supported software development systems are making such programs possible. Learn More

Overview

Appliance Transaction Modules provide a simplified gateway to exchange automation controller data with plant and enterprise applications running on general-purpose computers. These appliances, installed either in-chassis or standalone with their integrated hardware and software, tightly link PLCs/PACs and connect via "adapters" to databases or messaging queues, such as Microsoft SQL, Oracle, or various versions of Java Messaging Service (JMS).
