Accelerating the Adoption of Industrial Internet of Things.


Factory Automation in general and Motion Control as its most demanding sector are vital and indispensable elements in almost all industrial branches such as automotive, mechanical and semiconductor production, filling and packaging, printing and many more.

Motion control is a sub-field of automation, where position or velocity of machines and robots is controlled using motors or linear actuators. High performance factory and motion control depends strongly on a powerful communication technology. Here, EtherCAT as Ethernet-based fieldbus is in a leading position and Advantech, a leading provider of automation control equipment and solutions, is on the way to support EtherCAT intensively.
