Daily Industrial Automation News Roundup:

Today we’re covering news about AI Identification, SoftPLCs, IPCs, ZeroTrust, Industrial Wireless and more in our Automation This Morning blog for March 8, 2023.

First up we have a press release from Siemens here about their new Passenger Train manufacturing facility in North Carolina. Score one for manufacturing local!

In product announcements, today we have a new product from Cognex here which is an AI driven product identification camera touting quick and easy setup.

We also have a new IPC here from Neousys with the latest rugged 12th Gen cpus from intel, and an nVidia RTX graphics card capable of 9 Teraflops which is the equivalent of a PS5.

Our first new article of the day is from Schneider Electric here and it covers Digitization through phased migrations.

Over on the Straton website here we have a new article about their collaboration with Welotec to bring their SoftPLC engine to IPCs supporting IEC61850-3.

And I also came across an interesting article here on the DNP website which summarizes Zero Trust and how DNP SAv6 implements that model.

Today in our product spotlight we’re featuring our Logix Book Of Knowledge™, a compilation of all of my ControlLogix articles from the last ten years into a single ebook which is on sale now for just $9.99 here.

In our “pub crawl” today we found a great new manual from Siemens here which covers the technology of Industrial Wireless Ethernet. We also found a new manual here for Siemens Soft Start products.

On the Rockwell website we found one new publication of interest here which is an updated user manual for the 6300B and 6300T line of IPCs.

And on the Emerson site we found a newly updated manual here on their Topworx PD100 Smart Valve Positioner.

New to Audio and Video today is an Automation Tech Tip here covering TIA Portal v18 and how to create and simulate a PLC program using it.

As far as coming content releases, this afternoon at 3:30pm ET here we will be releasing our latest episode of The Automation Podcast with featured guest Red Lion to discuss their brand new Gigabit line of Industrial Ethernet Switches, the NT5000 series.
