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.
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.
The theme of “Discover what’s possible” at Automation Fair 2023 is a major building block toward better industrial manufacturing.
Upgrades for SCADA software should be implemented sooner for better results, admitted Control Engineering SCADA software buyers, specifiers and integrators, according to recent research.
