The future of the industry is characterized by a marked individualization of products in the context of highly flexible large-volume production. This trend is being spurred on by intelligent monitoring and decision-making processes that companies and entire value-added-chain networks can control and optimize virtually in real time. Encoders with Ethernet-based fieldbus interfaces are already easy to configure and come complete with a range of diagnostic functions. Continue reading
