Remote Monitoring Solutions

As many of today’s industrial control networks are becoming more distributed, the cost of sending technicians out to remote sites can be prohibitive. Remote monitoring technologies can give you more granular visibility to the conditions at remote sites, allowing you to troubleshoot problems from a centralized location. In this session, we will discuss the various technologies commonly used to provide remote access and monitoring and help you determine which solution is best for your situation.

Easy EtherNet/IP Solutions

EtherNet/IP is the #1 industrial networking protocol deployed by machine OEMs in the US. OEMs are faced with three big challenge these days: increasing control network complexity, tremendous pressure to reduce cost, and lack of networking skills. In this session, we will discuss these challenges and present several solutions that will help machine builders overcome these obstacles and remain more competitive.

Making the Most of Legacy Devices in the Age of IIoT

One of the first challenges with Smart Factory initiatives is connecting the wide range of legacy technologies present on the factory floor. There are a wide variety of industrial protocols, serial communications, and discreet analog and digital I/O that all need to be connected to the plant network in order to leverage their data to improve operations. We will discuss the wide range of connectivity solutions that Moxa offers to bring all of your legacy devices on to a common Ethernet network.

Deploying Industrial Wireless Solutions

Industrial wireless networks are gaining in popularity. They can be a big cost savings versus running new cable or fiber, but WiFi presents a different set of challenges for the typical controls engineer. Designing and deploying a secure and reliable wireless network in the harsh, interference-ridden industrial environment can be a challenge. In this session, we will address these and other common challenges and share some best practices and technologies that simplify deployment and increase reliability.

Industrial Cybersecurity Basics: Secure Zones & Conduits Using Industrial Secure Routers

As more industrial control systems become connected to enterprise networks and even the internet, security is a rising concern. Industrial cybersecurity can be a daunting topic for many controls engineers. In this session, Moxa will discuss some simple and practical best practices for critical device protection using industrial secure routers to set up firewalls and encrypted VPN connections.
