Advanced modular remote I/O adapters with built-in serial ports
For the past 30+ years, we have developed an extensive portfolio of products designed for the harsh operating requirements of OT networks. However, as network security threats continue to rise, we have combined our OT expertise with IT level security features within our leading product lines. This has resulted in a comprehensive OT security connectivity portfolio. See below to understand how we have incorporated expansive security features across our products to keep your networks not only connected, but secure .
Making Smart Manufacturing a Reality
Every network application is unique depending on environment, scale and budget. However,
there can be similarities in design across all of these. Check out the following example that illustrates how our eco-system of connectivity solutions can transform a factory/plant into something that's Smart, Efficient and Secure.
