Modernization - The New Migration

Modernization, or as we use to say, migration (and I’m not talking about crossing the western frontier in a covered wagon; although that topic might come up a little later), used to be a straight forward concept because controls were simple. We would come across an obsolete piece of equipment and simply replace it with the updated version. Today, automation equipment is more complex, the luxury of just getting the updated version isn’t available.

Integrated Safety

Over the past decade safety has become a high priority on the plant floor, and this is great to hear. Why? It means that employers want you to go home at night healthy and safe. These days it seems like you can't move without tripping a safety circuit on a machine and this has been changing the way we think about safety. With the advent of safety over Ethernet, we can monitor the safety system, make decisions, and notify people of problems faster than ever before. There is even an effort to include Collaborative Safety (where a person and a machine meet) as a focus moving forward to increase up-time.

Rockwell Automation's New PanelView 5000 Will Not Disappoint

Every customer has a unique perspective on the PanelView 5000 family. Some think it’s old news. Others are not familiar with it at all. Rockwell Automation continually offers new products with new features and benefits – but the tech savvy person (me included) is always wary of the latest and greatest product offering. Does it do everything it is supposed to? Are there any bugs or as I like to call them “Undocumented Software Features”? These things are inevitable with new products, but I have decided that now is the time to seriously start thinking about the PanelView 5000 and here’s why.

Look Around, Gear is Everywhere!

Hi there. Angie Rypel, your friendly neighborhood Motor Control Center Specialist here. I’ve been looking around lately, and do you know what I’m coming to realize? Gear. Is. Everywhere.
