Learn the ideal control structure for continuous process environments from our featured process suppliers. You'll hear how to simplify an array of siloed machines into a single Distributed Control System (DCS) in our Unifying System Control with a DCS Seminar. The Wiring Methodologies in a Process Environment Seminar speaks on the benefits of replacing conduit and wire with molded cordsets in panels and instrumentation, including options for hazardous areas.  Historically, machines have been silos of automation. However, with the emergence of “Smart Manufacturing” and the “Industry 4.0” initiative, they are now being connected inside the modern processing facility to create a Cyber-Physical processing system.

The IIoT will take what has been traditionally connected inside of a control network and connect these devices over the internet instead, known also as a Cyber-Physical system.

If you are a developer in need of help designing an IIoT solution, this show is the best first step for you. Learn how to design a secure system with encryption, user rights controls, access controls, etc. In addition, you'll learn several methods to reduce bandwidth and data concerns such as push protocols, bulk store and forward and others.

If you are a decision maker, our experts will guide you and help define your ROI while showing you how the IIoT is changing the rules on how we reduce cost, increase revenue and leapfrog the competition with a competitive advantage.
