Join Control Engineering for a Webcast to discover best practices for industrial Ethernet implementations based on experiences of two automation system integrators. Apply these lessons learned to help your current or next application design, start-up, and implementation of industrial Ethernet provide maximum benefits and quickly as possible. An exam and certificate are available for one professional development hour (PDHs), according the Registered Continuing Education Program (from the American Council of Engineering Companies).
