EE Times and Design News are hosting an interactive virtual conference this Thursday, April 21, 2011. The topic: The Network Becomes the Center of Industrial Control Safety and Connectivity.
The focus of this event is on the increasingly important role of the network in industrial control technology through discussions on advancing sensing, safety and connectivity capabilities and requirements for the systems designer.
Attendees will take away:
- A greater understanding of how safety is moving away from hardwired separate networks and onto the same network as the control system with equal, if not greater, levels of redundancy and fail safe capability.
- How and when to incorporate USB connectivity on devices to supplant or replace serial connector options.
- When and where wireless networks are being used to supplant Ethernet and other wired networks and where it’s being tested.
- Advances in capacitive sensing and where this technology is best applied in industrial control.
