Join HMS Networks and Elektor for an exclusive webinar on Tuesday May 21, 2024 (16:00pm CEST) - Register Now!

Industrial automation devices typically need to communicate using 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.

Join our live webinar where we will demonstrate how quickly such communications can be up and running using proven techniques, such as Raspberry Pi as a demonstrator.

Save your seat today and learn more about:

  • Rapid Implementation: See a live, step-by-step demonstration of how to quickly configure industrial automation communication protocols using a Raspberry Pi as an example host platform.
  • Futureproofing: Gain insights into emerging communication expectations like OPC UA and MQTT for seamless data exchange with IT software solutions.
  • Prioritizing Cybersecurity:  Learn about the evolving cybersecurity regulations and threats to OT, and the cyber security building blocks needed to protect your devices.
  • Best Practices Knowledge: Gain valuable understanding of best practices for industrial automation communication, ensuring reliable and efficient system operations.
