As an integral part of the Industrial Internet of Things and an increasingly prevalent technology in factory automation, Industrial Ethernet continues to outgrow fieldbus as the dominant communications platform of the factory floor. The benefits of Industrial Ethernet over other types of control architecture are numerous. One excellent example is the use of analog signals to control motor position. Although a popular option for many decades, analog control signals are prone to noise and can be difficult to troubleshoot and maintain.
This webinar, first presented live on October 13, 2016 in collaboration with Design World magazine, explains how Ethernet-enabled integrated motors are being used to overcome the inherent limitations of analog control signals by providing a more robust, error-proof solution that delivers better performance and generates a better return on investment.
