Webinar details

Data communication is at the essence of our daily lives. In industrial environments, data communication also plays a central role. It allows computers, controllers, sensors, actuators, and other devices to communicate together in order to control processes. Data communication is an enabler for data acquisition, remote control, and automation.

Industrial data communication requirements include short delays, determinism, and real-time operations. Industrial environments are also known to be noisy in terms of Electromagnetic interference (EMI).

During this webinar, we will discuss the basics of industrial data communication and networking, including fieldbus systems, the use of Ethernet and wireless communication.
