Can't Get There From Here? Entering the Connected World without Leveling Your Factory & Starting Again

Automation World's Director of Content/Editor-in-Chief David Greenfield joins Mike Granby, president of Red Lion Controls, to discuss how to make the vision of the connected factory a reality by using industrial solutions that thrive in environments where automation products from multiple vendors exist side by side.This webcast interview focuses on cost-effective ways to seamlessly connect, monitor and control assets without starting from scratch.

Enhance Productivity Through Visual Management: Displaying KPIs & Messages on the Plant Floor

Kaizen, lean manufacturing, six-sigma, total quality management and continuous improvement; all of these terms refer, in some form or another, to the efforts of companies as they strive to become more competitive in a global economy. While various strategies are implemented in order to improve productivity, they have two things in common: the collection and communication of key performance indicators (KPIs). This webcast serves as an introduction to the concept of visual management, and how it increases efficiency and reduces downtime. Red Lion and Chicago Electric join together to discuss the real-world benefits of collecting and displaying KPIs and Andon messages on the plant floor.

Designing Effective Wind Farm Networks: Using Best Practices to Cost-Effectively Maximize Uptime

Equipment and implementation costs aren’t the only items to consider when designing wind farm networks. Proper network planning is essential for building high-speed, industrial-grade infrastructures that improve performance and maximize uptime. This webcast discusses industry best practices and presents real-world deployment examples.

Networking the Wind Farm: A Closer Look at the Equipment that Ensures Uptime

As wind farms continue to sprout worldwide, networking technology is a key component to keeping wind farms up and running at peak efficiency. An important part of the technologically-savvy wind farm is industrial-grade Ethernet, which has evolved to combine rugged networking with reliable performance and advanced features. Join Red Lion Controls for an insider's look at how industrial Ethernet switches can be used with automation equipment to maximize wind farm uptime.

Smart Remote Connected Sites: Using Cellular Automation to Monitor & Control Assets

Today's utilities have a highly productive and efficient business environment that is very competitive and needs to comply with many stringent regulatory requirements to prevent situations that would cause a facility to be down for even a small amount of time. A slight failure of equipment translates into immediate consequences from both a financial and safety perspective. These pressures move utilities towards building high-availability smart sites that help minimize unscheduled down time and allow for shorter time to repair.

A direct result of this trend is the need for the site to have remote access to equipment. To help facilitate this access, these utilities are converting their networks to become IP-enabled – but with the many benefits that come with this, the move to IP networks also adds a level of complexity as it becomes increasingly more important to securely connect these critical industrial infrastructures. This white paper will discuss how cellular automation enables cost-effective monitoring and control of data at remote sites.
