Turck presents universal IoT wireless gateways for wireless connection to cloud solutions. This makes it easy to integrate machines and systems as well as measuring points in remote locations into automation networks. With its extensive range of interfaces, the TCG20 series is specially tailored to the requirements of industrial automation.

The ODVA has announced the release of enhancements to the Ethernet / IP Specification, which show how devices based on the Hart communication protocol can be integrated into an Ethernet / IP architecture. The addition of this capability is another step in the process of optimizing Ethernet / IP for process industries. It provides users with a mechanism to integrate existing infrastructures while taking advantage of the benefits of industrial Ethernet.
