Controls engineers need a variety of information on industrial networking infrastructure topics such as wire, cable, fiberoptics, connection options, wireless technology, signal transmission and conversion, network configuration and monitoring and device power options.
Industrial Ethernet components to be evaluated include managed and unmanaged switches, routers, gateways, segment repeaters, and monitoring and configuration software.
Industrial Networking includes integrating factory floor industrial networks and process plant floor networks with company enterprise networks.
Wireless networks are attractive in applications where the cost of running signal cable and wiring, power cabling, or both is unattractive.
Timely news, back-to-basics primers, feature articles, technical white papers and descriptions of the latest products provide valuable insights that can be used in designing and building machine controls.
White Papers: In Depth Research
- Pre-wiring system can reduce wiring time up to 98% by eliminating the need to wire each point from the input of the PLC to field wires individually, and cable strands can be readily identified inside the control cabinet.
- The NI PCIe-8237R features NI LabView FPGA-enabled I/O, including isolated digital inputs and outputs, as well as bidirectional TTL lines for implementing custom counters, PWM signals and quadrature encoder inputs.
- Mitsubishi Electric, CC-Link IE Field Network Upgrades, remote i/o, input, output, input/output, digital, analog, gateways, cables, connectivity, plc, programmable logic controller
- iPOS3604 VX intelligent drives, and provides connectors (motor, encoder feedback and I/O signal) for each drive through a CANbus link.
