Today’s industrial networks are intelligent and robust, which is a stark change from what they were even a few years ago. Some of these changes and advances are highlighted.
The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technologies (ICTs), approved LoRaWAN from the LoRa Alliance as a standard, likely to boost Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
Knowing how to support time-sensitive networking (TSN)-based industrial Ethernet protocols and how to leverage a corresponding development ecosystem is key to ensuring manufacturing success.
Time-sensitive network (TSN)-compatible automation components can create agile and future-proof manufacturing factories.
Profibus & Profinet International (PI) are added module type packages (MTPs) to their industrial networking portfolio.
PI has launched a Profinet community stack project to support the spread of time-sensitive networking (TSN).
Plug-and-play and non-proprietary open automation system designs have become the goal of users. Many interoperability efforts include the O-PAS standard for control system architecture, time-sensitive networking (TSN) for industrial Ethernet and IEC 61499 for programming.
FDT Group named Steve Biegacki as the group's managing director starting in 2022.
Mark Immordino, a field product training engineer for WAGO Corp., shares insights on best practices for industrial control system networks.
An interoperable standard for a real-time location system (RTLS) is helping industry benefit from open interfaces and ultra-wideband (UWB) wireless technologies for asset tracking indoors and outdoors, according to an Oct. 20 Virtual Training Week training session from CFE Media and Technology.
