How automation components have turned into thinking components
As we search for intelligence, we need look no further than the industrial components. From sensing devices and soft starters to I/O modules and variable frequency drives (VFDs), many automation components now come with control intelligence inside.
This has become especially true with VFDs and soft starters—products whose primary purpose is to spin the motor. But, besides the core function, these products now come with intelligence built into them to do even more than just control the speed.
This white paper investigates how automation components have turned into thinking components.
