White Paper: Implementing Communication Protocols

Connecting Motion Control in the Factory:
Implementing Communication Protocols 
The need for Ethernet-based communication within the factory has grown. Detailed information about the tasks and performance of machines at every stage is critical to productivity. As capabilities have expanded from performance reporting to predictive maintenance warnings and beyond, the need to connect multiple controllers within the same machine and elsewhere in the factory has also grown.
Carroll Wontrop, Kollmorgen Senior Systems Engineer, presents considerations that should be taken into account to choose the right solution for your factory.
