  • Deterministic networking on Ethernet

    Andreas Pfeiffer writes that if Ethernet has any hope of becoming an automation control standard, time-deterministic control must coexist within a single message format with non-real-time data.

  • OPC maximizes object-oriented systems

    Control devices for passing data from one OPC DA server to another have gotten smarter and have more to say, making it easier for vendors, OEMs, machine builders and end users to communicate with them.

  • Industrial network security

    This "special to the web" book, available from, provides an introduction to the field of industrial network security and a tutorial on the basics of IT cybersecurity, physical security and personnel security.

  • Selecting an automation network

    With many projects requiring more than one network application, finding the network that best fits your needs is no easy task. This perspective will help get you started on the right path.
