Ken Austin, Lead Product Marketing Specialist for I/O and networks
Information is important in keeping critical processes and operations running smoothly. And network outages, however minor, can prove rather costly. This is a driving force behind the installation of managed Ethernet switches and the deployment of a network redundancy solution  The Device Level Ring (DLR) redundancy mechanism realizes recovery times of less than three milliseconds in the event of a network failure and is heavily promoted for EtherNet/IP applications. DLR ensures nearly bump-less switch-over times and is supported by many current two-port EtherNet/IP field devices, which can be networked in a ring topology using DLR. Additionally, in many non-EtherNet/IP  topologies, such as networking wind turbines, a redundancy mechanism is required to enable switching over as fast as possible in the event of an error. The DLR redundancy mechanism provides that needed speed. Learn more about DLR redundancy, and how it can help you and your clients.

Anthony Valasek, PREMIER System Integrators
Strategic planning is critical to the growth and development of an organization. Like the trickling source of a river, the direction of an organization starts with vision and mission statements, turns into a stream of strategic objectives, and transforms into a river of goals for departments, teams and individuals. Successfully navigating the river requires never losing your heading or risk running aground. While the current may take you slightly off course, you have to make continuous corrections. Regularly measuring your progress toward your objectives is required to reach your destination. Whether you have never considered strategic planning or have been doing it for years and would like to gather another perspective, please join this brief webinar to gain fundamentals for strategic planning and how that process can improve your organization’s operations.

Presented by Phoenix Contact
There is an increasing need for systems to become more lean and efficient to increase production, reduce costs and avoid unplanned shutdowns. Leveraging the power of smart instrumentation can be a powerful tool in providing these benefits. Most installed instrumentation in the field today are plain digital and analogue devices, however the majority of this instrumentation is also HART capable. HART diagnostic data provides the benefit of being able to maximize preventive maintenance and obtain the information needed to improve your system. With the advent of HART IP or HART over ethernet, there has never been a better time to start thinking of the plant of the future.
