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.
A recent example of a major CAE revamp is MSC Apex, released last month by MSC Software Corp. In a discussion with Design News, MSC executives noted that its next-generation platform is designed to substantially reduce CAE modeling and process time, “in some cases from weeks down to hours.”
The Thames Deckway would run for eight miles close to the river’s edge, rising and falling slightly with the tidal cycle. It will generate its own energy from a series of devices that will line the pathway and use a combination of sources to make the path self-sustaining.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
