Standards to Solutions

Designing for the manufacturing environment requires an intimate knowledge of industry standards to ensure the infrastructure supports the different environments found on the plant floor. Considerations such as shock and vibration, handling of water or dust, temperature, washdown areas, exposure to acids or oil mixtures and electromagnetic noise must be taken into account when selecting solutions to support these harsh environments.

Industrial Network Infrastructure

There is a rapid influx of smart equipment and connected devices that communicate on an industrial Ethernet network, which enables manufacturers to understand the performance of machines and processes like never before.  Yet equally important to what is connected, is how devices are connected.  New technologies enable manufacturers to manage infrastructure, deploy devices and share information in new ways.
