|This month's newsletter
contains a broad spectrum of innovations that could
benefit machine builders, system integrators and end
users. For example, there are developments in the fields
of motion control, machine vision, HMIs, light grids and
spherical roller bearings, to name just a few.
If you are interested in machine safety, take a look at
the new book from Robin Carver of Health & Safety
Compliance Engineering, read about smarter 'safe
automation' and check out Procter's risk assessment
In addition we have items relating to Ethernet, CAN-bus,
Profibus, Profinet and IO-Link, plus Industry 4.0,
customised motors, uninterruptible power supplies and
much more. Scroll down to see what else there is, and
