Due in large part to their integration of onboard electronics, smart electromechanical actuators are increasingly finding their way into applications that were once dominated by pneumatic and hydraulic systems. This has been evident in factories across the world, where automation applications have been taking advantage of enhanced control functions such as switching, position feedback and system diagnostics, as well as PCBs that enable communication between remote networks.
In this webinar, the fifth in a series of six focusing on smart actuators, we will look closely at the smart actuator technologies helping factories become interconnected and specific factory applications that employ these advanced components.
In this 30-minute webinar you will:
- Learn how to reduce overall system cost and complexity.
- Discover how to enhance controllability and preventative maintenance capabilities.
- Be able to determine which communication bus is best for your linear motion designs.
