Advancing and Securing PACs in the Industrial Ethernet World

Advancing and Securing PACs in the Industrial Ethernet World
In this webinar, Schneider Electric and Automation.com introduce the ePAC (Ethernet PAC) the next evolution of PACs.



The needs of today's industrial users have fast-tracked an evolution of programmable automation controllers (PACs) to address the growing challenges for productivity, flexibility, efficiency, and profitability. The backbone of this evolution entails Ethernet, and a growing adoption of open standards like Modbus™ TCP/IP and EtherNet/IP™.

Consider that in the past five years the number of Ethernet nodes has doubled and will amount to 45% of total industrial communications networks by 2016, according to IMS Research. This growing adaptation of Ethernet and open communication protocols has also come with an increased concern over cyber-security.

Furthermore, managers in process plants must consider total cost of ownership when selecting a PAC technology, especially when it is expected that such assets operate for decades. The selected PAC technology is also required to help achieve corporate strategic initiatives, such as operational efficiency and energy management.

In this webinar, Schneider Electric and Automation.com introduce the ePAC (Ethernet PAC), the next evolution of PACs by exploring:

• Why ePACs are required in order to make the most of Ethernet in industrial control communications
• How to use ePACs to implement secure industrial networks
• How ePACs reduce total cost of ownership by achieving strategic objectives, such as energy efficiency
