  • Your IoT Primer: Bridge the Gap between OT and IT

    PostedMonday, July 25,2016 at 4:18 PM

    You've probably heard about the Internet of Things (IoT). But what is it, and how will it affect our businesses?

    This primer helps you understand the IoT and the significant challenges we face to realize its benefits.

    The primer defines operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT), and shows how they are converging and why. It defines IoT technologies and suggests 3 steps you can take to develop an effective and profitable IoT strategy.

    This white paper explores the use of intelligent remote I/O in industrial automation systems. Employing a distributed architecture, rather than centralized control, offers three advantages: minimizing single points of failure, spreading the load, and maximizing scalability.

    The paper details applications that could be made more efficient by using built-in functions offered by intelligent remote I/O. It also gives a specific example of how distributed intelligence could be used in a PLC system.

  • SNAP PAC REST API and the Internet of Things - for OT Professionals

    PostedMonday, July 25,2016 at 2:10 PM

    We’ve all heard about the Internet of Things (IoT) and its promises: bringing useful data directly to people who make business decisions, and enabling machines to communicate with each other and make decisions for human benefit.

    But how does the IoT actually work? How does the data get from inside these physical "things" to computer networks where it can be used?

    This technical paper describes that pathway for OT (operational technology) professionals—automation professionals. It describes the kinds of data you may be asked to provide and why. It explains how data from physical "things"—especially existing sensors and actuators that have no IoT capabilities built in—can be securely communicated to company computer networks, without disturbing control networks.

    The paper also explains concepts important to any IoT strategy and introduces a new method to achieve the IoT results you need now, without requiring a complex chain of conversion hardware and software.
