Realizing Interoperability in Factory Automation without Blowing Your Budget

Posted by Kari Grosser on Oct 27, 2017 10:15:00 AM


In the age of the Internet of Things (IoT), the trend in industrial automation for all devices, equipment and controllers with different protocols to be able to connect with each other and speak the same "language" has become essential. Advantech recently introduced two new Protocol Gateways for protocol conversion to further complement our comprehensive product range. Our Protocol Conversion Solution gives you an unparalleled advantage of realizing interoperability in factory automation to avoid replacing incompatible network devices and extend their useful life without a heavy price tag of major upgrade.
