How to Eliminate IT Support For Your OT Networks

Control engineers and those in the manufacturing and the process industries worry about three things taking down their processes: the machines going down, the programmable logic controllers (PLC) or devices going down, and the network going down. This is where Phoenix Digital switches come in. Part of the Rockwell Automation Technology Partner program, these purpose-built Ethernet networking devices were designed specifically for control engineers to network PLCs and Ethernet devices in manufacturing and process environments.

All About PROFIBUS: The Communication Backbone of Production Plants

Available for over 20 years, the PROFIBUS standard is a mature digital fieldbus technology used in many factory and process automation applications, as well as in hybrid industries like food and beverages and pharmaceuticals. According to the PROFIBUS and PROFINET International (PI) association, over 50 million PROFIBUS devices were sold in 2015 — and this number continues to grow. Our blog post takes a deeper dive into PROFIBUS, including what it is and how it works.

Explore Secure Integration Server: A Secure, Flexible OPC UA-Based IT/OT Integration Solution

Owing to the explosion of the Internet of Things, the number of OT/IT applications increases, and so too does network complexity. Having an abstraction interface can go a long way toward reducing this complexity. Our Secure Integration Server (SIS) is one such example that provides a layer that simplifies management between the OT and IT domains based on the OPC UA standard.

Realizing Modern IoT Applications Through Central and Secure Data Integration
