Future Electronics invites engineers to Industry 4.0 seminar to preview new technologies for motor drives, sensing, control and connectivity
‘Lösungen für Industrieelektronik im Zeitalter von Industrie 4.0’ event in Minden, North Rhine-Westphalia includes an exclusive tour of WAGO’s state-of-the-art factory

Egham, UK, December 2016 – Future Electronics, founded in 1968 by company president Robert Miller and now a world-class leader and innovator in the distribution and marketing of electronics components, today announced that it is inviting applications from OEM design engineers and engineering managers to attend an ‘Industry 4.0’ seminar on 22 February 2017 in Minden, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.

The all-day seminar is intended for engineering professionals at companies working in the field of industrial and factory automation. It is also open to final-year engineering students. After a keynote speech by an expert from Hochschule Ostwestfalen-Lippe, they may choose to attend sessions in one of four technical streams: motor control, sensing and predictive maintenance, embedded control and displays, or wired and wireless connectivity.

Future Electronics is co-hosting the seminar with interconnect manufacturer WAGO Kontakttechnik, and the seminar will include a one-hour tour of the WAGO factory in Minden to provide a real-life example of the application of the latest Industry 4.0 technology.

The sessions will be presented by engineering experts from semiconductor manufacturers including ON Semiconductor, NXP Semiconductors, STMicroelectronics, Microchip and ROHM Semiconductor and by field applications engineers and market specialists from Future Electronics and WAGO.

At the end of the day, all those attending will be entitled to claim a free development kit suitable for their current or next development project. The seminar itself is also free of charge.

Martin Schiel, Vertical Segment Manager for Industrial Automation at Future Electronics (EMEA), said: ‘There is great scope today for industrial automation equipment to reduce factory downtime, raise energy efficiency, lower operating costs and improve productivity by embedding sensing and intelligence everywhere in the factory. This means that there is more pressure than ever before on the makers of factory and industrial automation equipment to make their products fit for Industry 4.0. The learning, networking and experiences that visitors to the WAGO/Future Electronics seminar will gain will help them be ready for the next wave of innovation in the factory equipment sector.’

The venue for the event is the conference centre at WAGO’s headquarters in Minden. The centre includes a meeting space for students attending the event, where they may learn more about WAGO and about Future Electronics.

Spaces are strictly limited, and those who are interested in attending are urged to apply immediately, at http://de.futureelectronics.com/de/promotions/eands/Seiten/L%C3%B6sungenf%C3%BCrIndustrieelektronikimZeitaltervonIndustrie40.aspx.

Future Electronics’ ‘Secure Wireless Sensor Node’ seminars helps designers protect the IoT from hacking and exploitation

World IoT day sees European-wide seminar series offer designers unique insight into solutions and trends for IoT security.

Egham, UK, 8th April, 2016 – Future Electronics, founded in 1968 by company president Robert Miller and now a world-class leader and innovator in the distribution and marketing of electronics components, today announced the dates of a series of ‘Secure Wireless Sensor Node’ seminars across Europe in May and June in conjunction with World IoT day.

With the explosion in IoT edge nodes, from feeding information about the health of a patient to the health of a pot plant; the data collected and analysed can reveal valuable insights that allow for more pro-active and streamlined decisions and activities. All of which ultimately benefits both the individuals and business alike. However, what is often overlooked is the increasing value the manipulation of this data may have to enhancing criminal activity. Ensuring a design that is robust and secure from external threats and vulnerabilities is vital to the integrity of a solution as a whole.

The ‘Secure Wireless Sensor Node’ seminars are tailored to benefit anyone working on IoT designs and offer unique insight from some of the Industry’s leading experts. The course encompasses solutions and technology trends from security, to wireless connectivity, to sensors and node power.

Every engineer attending a seminar will receive an AT88CK590 evaluation kit from Atmel, and the first 10 approved customers that register and attend in each location will win an OM5569/NT321D board from NXP.

As well as providing hands-on tuition with industry experts, engineers will learn about:

•    Protecting edge nodes against post deployment hacking & exploitation
•    Commission edge nodes securely and easily
•    Navigating short range wireless technology choices
•    Increasing RF range whilst minimising power consumption
•    Antenna design for ultra-compact form-factors
•    Choosing the best sensor for your node
•    Tips on maximising the battery life of an edge node
