  • Automation's Double-Edged Sword
    of programmable logic controllers like Schneiders' is that they are easy to program--or re-program, " notes Stelex-TVG's Matlis. "That strength becomes a weakness when a reprogramming requires the appropriate level of authority, and when it could necessitate a revalidation of the control system. " Adds Mark
  • Automation comes to wet-processing stations
    ) on Amerimade's automated wet-processing stations lets operators download various recipes and perform other monitoring and control functions. CTC Model 2700 controllers let the machines adapt to fit into many different manufacturing applications. The 5100 Series Blue Fusion controller incorporates
  • Integrate and simplify
    . It also offers the flexibility to expand as needed and can be applied in different areas of control. Kinetix, an integrated motion control package from Rockwell Automation, consists of Allen-Bradley's ControlLogix controller, servodrives, motors, and motion-application expertise, along with a Sercos
  • The good stuff may cost less
    vendor can outweigh modestly higher costs. And minimizing maintenance training brings additional savings with automation components that use software, such as HMIs, PLCs, and drives. However, there are cases when using best-of-class components make sense. For example, motion controllers are one
