Ethernet switching for the OT world
Full featured managed switches from the IT world feature an impressive array of options and functionality—perhaps too many for operational technologists. Unmanaged switches, on the other hand, are relatively unsophisticated devices that cost less, but lack security and redundancy features. In this episode of Control Amplified: The Process Automation Podcast, Keith Larson talks to Charlie Norz, product manager for I/O systems, WAGO USA, about a network switch option designed specifically for the needs of OT applications—and the priorities and skillsets of the engineers and technicians that work with them.

FDT for the Industry 4.0 era
The FDT integration standard first came into being as a means to deal with all aspects of multivendor device configuration and diagnostic data generated by smart process instruments. Over the years, it has evolved in both scope and functionality, and in its current iteration as FDT UE, it provides a platform-independent, web-enabled environment for managing and monitoring instrumentation and all manner of Industrial IoT devices across process, hybrid and discrete manufacturing domains. In this episode of Control Amplified: The Process Automation Podcast, Control magazine editor in chief Keith Larson discusses the ongoing evolution of FDT and its increased relevance in the age of Industry 4.0 with Steve Biegacki, FDT Group managing director.
