Automation 2020: Control Systems
The foundations of the automation industry are being reshaped by a flood of new ideas, software, and products being driven by consumer electronics, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the unbundling of hardware and software. Machine builders in particular are finally starting to benefit from automation platforms that provide dramatically increased power at a significantly lower cost, coupled with faster, more flexible development options that streamline commissioning.
In this edition of AUTOMATION 2020, you’ll learn about the promise and reality of control systems that combine such new technologies with the robustness, security, and sophistication needed for industrial applications. Volume 3 also includes an in-depth look at single-pair Ethernet—the infrastructure for Industrial IoT—as well as component-level sensor technologies for servomotors and other machinery.
