Why would you need distributed control in the first place? It’s because of the environment you’re trying to control. A wind farm, the desert, a power plant. It’s a wild world we live in and sometimes the equipment we’re looking at spans miles and miles, it’s not limited to a lab.
You’re not going to be running instrument cables over all these miles because that’s expensive and hard to maintain. So how about a single digital transmission cable?
We’re taking a look at what’s driving your hardware. Is this an application requiring microseconds, milliseconds, seconds — bits, bytes, kilobytes — inches, feet, miles?
That’s just the first of many questions addressed in this webcast.
