Dec. 31, 2017 - The EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG) says it has supplemented EtherCAT with Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) technologies, expanding the field of possible EtherCAT applications to include heterogeneous network environments.
Nov. 21, 2017 - In building management systems (BMS) and human machine interface (HMI), manufacturers need to seek the right architecture for supervisory systems. Costs are being further driven down from legacy systems while historically, reliability is improving and efficiency is increasing. Due to the enhanced connectivity of these systems today, improving cybersecurity has become an equally important goal.
Sep. 19, 2017 - As awareness surrounding IoT standardization continues to grow, more eyes are being drawn to the necessity of enabling interoperability for distributed measurement and control solutions.
Jun. 27, 2017 - Robotics, variable frequency drives (VFDs) and programmable logic controllers (PLCs) are prevalent in many manufacturing environments. These microprocessor-based control systems have enabled plants to automate many functions and processes, increasing repeatability and precision in a wide array of industries.
May 5, 2017 - Remote monitoring networks provide industries with the capability to automatically track and control various assets to improve operations while reducing costs.
May 4, 2017 - Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed a holographic imaging process that depicts the radiation of a Wi-Fi transmitter to generate three-dimensional images of the surrounding environment. Industrial facility operators could use this to track objects as they move through the production hall.
Mar. 26, 2017 - When first introduced to the industry, remote instrumentation was based on wired systems. Today, wireless remote monitoring and control systems can simulate the architecture of wired systems using links to transmit data.
Nov. 29, 2016 - Almost 60 years ago, the Unimate robot kicked off an automation revolution that transformed the productivity and cost-effectiveness of manufacturing. Today, automation is expanding once again with a new model. With Industry 4.0, machines talk to machines and operations run as much on information and communications as they do on equipment and people.
Nov. 15, 2016 - The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), an independent provider of broad-based testing and standards conformance services for the networking industry, has launched three industry-specific time sensitive networking (TSN) consortiums — automotive, industrial, and professional audiovisual (proAV) — designed to provide deterministic performance within standard Ethernet for real-time, mission critical applications. 
Aug. 12, 2016 - Industrial wireless technology provides a competitive edge to operators and plant managers around the world as they seek innovative ways to improve the quality of communication in their production and distribution units. An effective communication infrastructure can make it possible for industrial equipment to deliver high levels of reliability, availability, and maintainability, thereby reducing operational and support costs, and minimizing capital investments.
May 13, 2016 - Toyota Motor Corp. has selected EtherCAT as its industrial Ethernet technology of choice and will base its new factories around the world on EtherCAT. The global announcement was made by Morihiko Ohkura, general manager of the Production Engineering Innovation Division at Toyota Motor Corporation during an EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG) press briefing at Hannover Messe 2016.
Mar. 31, 2016 - ByteGrid Holdings, a provider of hosting solutions, has selected power management company Eaton to provide power management and monitoring solutions for its Cleveland Technology Center (CTC) in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, which it says is the city’s largest multi-tenant data centre.
Mar. 21, 2016 - Huawei signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Kuka, a global provider of robot technology, to develop smart manufacturing solutions for industrial markets in Europe and China at CeBIT 2016 (Global Event for Digital Business) on March 14.
Mar. 11, 2016 - National Instruments (NI) has announced a collaboration with the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and industry players Bosch Rexroth, Cisco, Intel, Kuka, Schneider Electric and TTTech to develop what they say is the world’s first Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) testbed.
Feb. 4, 2016 - Rockwell Automation and Kollmorgen have joined the industrial segment of AVnu Alliance, a community driving open, standard, deterministic networking through certification. According to AVnu Alliance, the two new members bring “valuable expertise to bolster the Alliance’s efforts with Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) for industrial applications.”
