Control Engineering’s top 5 pieces of content over the past week Automation Fair 2023, EV battery manufacturing and IT/OT integration.
1. Automation Fair 2023: Sustainability efforts require measuring and control tools, system integration
Calculating an organization’s readiness for net zero carbon emissions can help identify what needs to improve. Sensors, energy management software and system integration and analytics can help, according to experts at Automation Fair 2023 by Rockwell Automation.
The theme of “Discover what’s possible” at Automation Fair 2023 is a major building block toward better industrial manufacturing.
Many production plant designs require integration of a distributed control system with multiple PLC-based subsystems. NAMUR MTP is a standardized configuration and communication method to facilitate integration between the two, while cutting the cost, time and risk of doing so.
Electric vehicles (EVs) require more efficient manufacturing to meet increased demands and use of robotics and servo motors can help. See table on battery types, information on cell housing types.
Are operations cyber-vulnerable due to lack of resources, lack of understanding or both?
