Connectivity in real-time with the Festo AP system communication
Scalability, connectivity and simplicity are key features that modern machines are incorporating. This seminar will review the possibility of easily integrating technology which fulfills these 3 key features. In a single platform, modules such as digital I/O, analog I/O, pneumatics and IO Link can be consolidated. Key characteristics such as the creation of power zones and ease of implementation in multiple PLC platforms will be key topics as well. End users can enjoy benefits such as predictive maintenance embedded in the platform design, while OEMs can benefit from quick commissioning time.
