PROFINET (Process Field Net) is the standard for industrial networking in automation. It brings Ethernet to the factory floor where it collects data from, and controls industrial systems, equipment, devices and systems to improve the quality and efficiency of manufacturing.
How to Implement a PROFINET Controller on a PC
In a challenging economy, industrial manufacturers look for ways to reduce costs. For example, many now harness standard PCs or internally developed embedded systems. They develop control applications and host them on PCs. As well as lower cost, this can provide advantages such as performance and flexibility.
SIDOOR Automatic Door Controls
Most people are familiar with door control technology in supermarkets and other public places. As you approach the entrance, a sensor is triggered. The door then opens – or at least, it is supposed to. Sometimes the door moves too slowly. Sometimes the sensor is triggered when people are passing as opposing to entering/leaving the building. At other times, the door sticks or continues to close when someone or something is present.
