Video: Key issues and drivers in automation

Automation trends, issues, and advice are covered in a short Molex video with Control Engineering.

12/12/2011


Molex turned the camera around on Control Engineering and asked for a quick perspective of current trends and issues in automation and controls.

Mark T. Hoske, Control Engineering content manager, takes a few minutes with Larry Wegner from Molex to review issues and market drivers and offer a bit of advice for those using and integrating automation technologies.
