Truly Open and Secure Machine Control

7 Steps to a Modern, Flexible and Secure Machine Control Design


Staffing shortages, supply chain issues and ever-increasing cybersecurity incidents have changed the face of production across nearly every industry. Whether they are machine builders creating the newest technologies or end users upgrading existing process equipment, companies are finding traditional design principles and products no longer meet the flexibility, efficiency and security needs of today’s global marketplace. As OEMs and project teams look for new control solutions to address these needs, they must wade through a variety of options.

In this webcast, Darrell Halterman, director of PACSystems Controllers at Emerson, will share strategies for pursuing flexibility, open communication and defense-in-depth in automation design to help harness best-in-breed control technologies to gain a competitive advantage in the future of production.
