First up in our new products section is the announcement here of the P8000 Stepper Drive from Kollmorgen,

We also have an announcement on the ISA’s website here about Fuzzy Logic’s release of their Fuzzy Studio robot programming software.

First up in our new article section is an article here from Ignition about three tools that can help with rapid HMI & SCADA development.

Next we have an in-depth article here from STAHL about the emerging standard for Digital Nameplates.

Over on the ISA website we have a couple of new articles. The first here covers the Top Five Robot Trends for 2023, and the second here covers Communication Safety Challenges for Mobile Robots.

And today on the WWT website we have a new article here which covers Cyber Resilience to defend against some of the newest forms of attacks.

We also came across to upcoming events here and here from the ODVA scheduled for March 6th. The first will cover CIP Safety while the second covers CIP Security.

In our Q & A section today we share our thoughts on why a reader’s CompactLogix continues to return to a previous IP Address each time power is cycled (see the morning show video below for today’s segment.)
