System integrators are there to solve automation problems by providing the time, talent, and technology required to turn a plan into a completed project
Emerson announced it has agreed to acquire Intelligent Platforms, a division of General Electric, to expand opportunities in machine control and discrete applications across process industries and target hybrid markets.
Five industrial controller findings
Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) have developed a simulator to help operators of chemical processing plants better understand the security issues of industrial control systems (ICSs). Future versions are being planned to simulate electric power grids, treatment facilities, and other manufacturing facilities.
Choosing the most effective controller requires careful evaluation of multiple requirements.
A coordinate frame is a point of reference that defines the six degrees of freedom (DoF) in a PLCopen controller. A programmer needs to know how the different coordinate frames interact and which ones are important to understand.
As technology advances, hardware needs to be updated for optimal efficiency.
Measuring success: Understand which type of discrete sensors to use for what applications, terminology, and tips.
The meaning of an embedded system varies depending on the application; system integrators, end users, and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) may have different views.
