Next Generation Automation for the Smart Factory…Moving PLC Control to the Edge

When:  Oct 6, 2021 from 10:00 to 11:00 (CT)

Have you thought about what the automation on your factory floor will look like in 5-10 years? Does the technology look the same as today? Are you prepared for the next generation of controls where everything is connected, and everything is “smart”? Can you easily get the data you need from factory floor to dashboard in real time with little effort? Is your current control system capable of handling the future and ready to be the key component in a “Smart Factory”? The truth is, the control systems currently on the market do not have the capabilities to handle edge computing and are not ready for Industry 4.0 or all the connectivity we will ask of it.

In this session, you will:

  • Discover some new standards that are about to hit the factory floor
  • Learn how those standards will impact the automation landscape
  • Get introduced to the next generation of automation control systems, EcoStruxure Automation Expert
