Mastering Industrial Device Connectivity: PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT and cybersecurity

HMS Networks and Elektor are holding an exclusive live webinar on Tuesday May 21, 2024 (16:00pm CEST) on industrial device connectivity

Industrial automation devices typically need to communicate using connectivity protocols such as PROFINET, PROFIBUS, EtherNet/IP or EtherCAT. These are well-defined but usually require special hardware and dedicated interfacing which makes implementation a complex and lengthy process.

In addition, security by design is rarely considered when designing and deploying industrial networks. IIoT introduces new threats beyond those of traditional industrial networks. Addressing this complexity requires multiple layers of defense adding to a project’s length and cost.

The live webinar will demonstrate how quickly such communications can be up and running using proven techniques suing a Raspberry Pi as a demonstrator for a step-by-step demonstration of how to quickly configure industrial automation communication protocols.

The webinar will also cover emerging communication expectations like OPC UA and MQTT for seamless data exchange with IT software solutions and evolving cybersecurity regulations and threats to OT, and the cyber security building blocks needed to protect devices.
