Connecting Legacy Controls in a Smart Factory Environment

8:00am - 12:00pm

Classroom #5

Speaker: David Garcia, Moxa

Capturing data from the plant floor and using it to form actionable information at the operational level is the cornerstone of the Digital Enterprise experience.  While it is not feasible to upgrade the entire plant floor architecture at once, there are new solutions that allow you to connect your existing devices to data networks with ease. In this workshop you will learn about these solutions and gain valuable hands-on expertise.

Integrating Smarter Solutions for Ethernet IP Systems

8:00am - 12:00pm

Classroom #6

Speaker: Jason Halderman & Mike Sutton, Phoenix Contact

Get a basic understanding of Ethernet and the specific requirements for EtherNet/IP.  The focus will be hands-on with scenarios for the configuration of different I/O and Ethernet switches.  Starts with basic linear networks and works toward advanced ring redundancies such as RSTP-Rapid Spanning Tree and DLR-Device Level Ring.  We review AOI and Faceplates for our 7000 series Stratix replacement switch.

Later use our E/IP capable WLAN 1101 dual antenna Wi-Fi point to display both an HTML5 HMI and our PDR 1000 data recorder on your mobile device or computer.

Integration of Sinamics Drives into Rockwell Control Systems

1:00pm - 5:00pm

Classroom #3

Speaker: Chad White, Siemens

Participants will gain a better understanding of how to integrate Sinamics General Purpose Drives into Rockwell Automation control platforms through Studio 5000 and FT View ME software and using new efficient integration techniques such as Faceplates, AOI's, UDT's, and EDS files.  Participants will also explore how to commission and recover general purpose drives via standard and Wi-Fi enabled interface modules, SD cards, and software.

Siemens Maintenance/Troubleshooting: Automation and Drives

1:00pm - 5:00pm

Classroom #4

Speaker: Jerome Wood, AWC

This workshop will provide attendees with an introduction to the Siemens STEP 7 and WinCC components that comprise the TIA Portal software platform.  Each attendee will gain confidence in navigating all the components of a S7-1500/ET200SP hardware configuration, PROFIBUS/PROFINET network topology, and troubleshooting errors on the PLC and HMI using a variety of integrated tools (upload/download, online diagnostics, cross referencing/navigational tools, etc.) within an example program.   

Implementing Smart Motor Management: Improved Productivity and Pathway to Digitalization

1:00pm - 3:00pm
