Control Engineering webcast, the Complex Simplicity of Ethernet, offers application advice

Advice for using Ethernet in industrial environments will be among knowledge shared in a Control Engineering webcast, the Complex Simplicity of Ethernet. Advice includes use of Ethernet in industrial applications, when redundancy is needed, streaming SCADA video for gauge verification; and Ethernet safety.


NOW AVAILABLE on demand using the link below: Advice for using Ethernet in industrial environments will be among knowledge shared in a Control Engineering webcast, the Complex Simplicity of Ethernet.

The Thursday, Oct. 19, 2010, at 2 p.m. ET/1 p.m. CT/11 a.m. PT also will be available for viewing in the Control Engineering webcast archive. Register for the live event or view the archived information at

Ethernet application advice includes the following:

  • Ethernet can make industrial networks better and easier to use;
  • Some applications will benefit from a redundant Ethernet architecture;
  • SCADA Ethernet applications can stream video to verify why an alarm is going off, confirming gauge readings;
  • Harsh-duty Ethernet hardware can add reliability in rugged environments; and
  • Ethernet use can benefit safety applications.

The Control Engineering webcast is sponsored by Molex and Moxa.
