ON DEMAND: Empowering Power for the Digital Age
Shawn Hatton, Senior Field Automation Specialist, Bedrock Automation

 

The benefits of smarter, interconnected devices are becoming more apparent every day and with that, their need for continuous, reliable power. Control systems, flow meters, transmitters, actuators, VFDs and other field devices are increasingly gathering strategic data that can be analyzed for cost savings and other process improvements.

 

But if random power transients, inclement weather, cyberattack, or other forces breach the power signals on which they depend, all data is lost. Additionally, disrupting process continuity can put expensive connected equipment in jeopardy. This webinar explores the need to distribute power to the edge, the rewards of doing so, and how power supply digital architectures are evolving to reduce costs and to empower the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Expanded Power Checklists

 

As part of the May 7, 2020, Automation.com / Bedrock Automation webinar titled “Empowering Power for the Digital Age,” Bedrock Automation’s Shawn Hatton presented a 12-point New Power Checklist. The checklist was intended to provide webinar participants with a high-level overview of key features of modern industrial power to consider as they seek to save money with power systems that are smart, powerful, rugged, secure, and able to leverage the potential of the IIoT.

 

Due to many requests for more details, Bedrock has published an expanded 12-point checklist that includes details that Shawn discussed during the webinar. Also, Bedrock has published an exhaustive 62-point checklist for those interested in a deeper dive.
