  • Tech Trends in Machine Vision

    This White Paper will address the latest technology trends in machine vision and show how these trends are providing benefits to manufacturers worldwide. High performance hardware options are making it easier than ever to install vision systems and different networking architectures have emerged to best serve a wide variety of diverse applications. Standards are emerging to ease integration, and software is becoming easier to set up and use.
  • Industrial PCs – Making the Right Choice

    This White Paper will examine the pros and cons of various automation platform technologies to identify where an IPC offers the best fit. For many applications, this technology brings together just the right combination of characteristics to be the optimum solution for intelligent automation. Not only that, but IPCs are uniquely poised to enable the smart factory by bridging operations technology (OT) with information technology (IT) systems. We’ll start by looking at what key aspects define an industrial PC.
  • Cloud Connectivity for Industrial IoT Applications

    A hardware communication hub such as an RTU or a gateway is often the best tool to collect,
    format, and forward industrial automation system big data to the cloud.
  • Wireless Connectivity for the Internet of Things

    Learn how IoT methodologies can be used in conjunction with wireless technology to gather field data and to publish the information to those who need it most.
  • Enable Intelligent Maintenance on Cloud-based WebAccess

    The concept of “smart manufacturing” has flourished in recent years. Industry 4.0 will upgrade global industrial capabilities by increasing communication among equipment, devices, and humans via Internet connectivity. A cloud-based IIoT SCADA gateway is a system capable of supporting data storage and performing data communication from data concentrators to data consumers.
  • Making Manufacturing Smart

    Implementing the Industrial Internet of Things (IIot) makes factories smart and confers a host of operational benefits.
  • Data Acquisition with the Cloud and Mobile Devices

    IoT and the Cloud make it possible for sensors to be everywhere, for data storage to be anywhere, and, through the use of mobile devices, control and display of data to be anywhere as well. 
  • Eye and Hand Coordination - The Future of Robotics

    Robot vision and increased computer processing power are the keys to less expensive, easier to operate and easier to program robots. Without vision, a robot needs to be carefully programmed to move to carefully measured coordinates, and repeat the function. With vision as a feedback mechanism, it is now possible to do random picking with near 100% accuracy.
  • Next Generation of HMI

    Cloud-Based Remote Monitoring and Diagnosis Solutions for Production Management
  • Intelligent RTU in the IoT era

    The power of the Internet of Things (IoT) is enabled by the implementation of intelligent electronic devices and sensors on communication networks with real-time data exchange and control functionality between the field and a control center. It allows utilities to have better visibility into the system conditions anywhere and at any time utilizing advanced automated applications that improve system reliability, efficiency, and customer service.
  • Using EtherCAT for Industrial Control Communications

    EtherCAT is an ideal solution in many motion control and related industrial automation applications because of its high speed, determinism, and reliability.
  • Cloud-based SCADA as an Industrial IoT Gateway

    Consumer media is awash with articles concerning the Internet of Things (IoT) and how smarter devices, the things in the IoT, are changing the world. Another hot tech topic is the cloud in all of its forms: cloud storage, cloud-based apps, cloud-powered mobile devices, cloud-hosted virtual machines and other applications. Yet the IoT and the cloud have much more to offer than consumer-grade conveniences. A fusion of IoT and cloud technologies has specific applications in the industrial automation sector, creating the Industrial IoT (IIoT). Unquestionably, cloud-based supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) software provides an ideal gateway to deliver practical and actionable IIoT information to those who need it.
