Automation World recently wrote an article regarding the adoption of POE within the automation sector. Though POE within automation makes technological sense the adoption has been less than stellar. Price, management and lack of education are just some of the reasons why the technology  has not found a home in automation.

Rick Rice, applications engineer at Crest Foods in Rockford, Ill., says that one of the hurdles PoE faces, like any other advance in technology, is its cost of implementation. [pullquote_right]“Upper management is always interested in the bottom line and, frankly, spending money on the ‘new-fangled stuff’, to use a description I heard while passing a board room recently, just doesn’t seem appealing to most decision makers.”[/pullquote_right]

Some believe that wireless may surpass the need for POE.  The push toward wireless may cut off any potential surge for PoE, Johnson Lukose, business manager at Scadatech Engineering in Selangor, Malaysia, says, “PoE was [once] tagged as a game changer, but [now] it is languishing to capture the factory floor. By all accounts it looks like it’ll be overtaken by wireless technology. However, I find it doing well in the access control, CCTV and physical security markets.”

Have you used POE for other installations besides security? Let us know how you have implemented POE.

The open industry forum for the development of a global standard for the interface of IP-based physical security products is set to introduce a series of profiles to aid systems designers in determining which devices are compatible with one another.

The ONVIF forum said as IP-based interoperability grows and the number of conformant products available on the market rises, the new profiles eliminate the need for extensive technical knowledge of the specific versions of the ONVIF specification released since 2008.

COLUMBUS, Miss. — Stark Aerospace soon will begin test flying unmanned aerial systems from Golden Triangle Regional Airport. Stark’s parent company is Israel Aerospace Industries, a leader in military and commercial aerospace. Locally, the company is best known for its remote-control aerial systems, which offer air and land surveillance without being heard or seen. Stark’s Heron, a UAV with a 54-foot wingspan, is utilized in stealth drug enforcement operations. The Commercial Dispatch reports Stark Aerospace plans to hire 15 people at the local plant by the end of the year. The company, which produces unmanned aerial vehicles and plug-in electo-optic surveillance systems, currently employs 135 people at its 106,000-square-foot plant in the industrial park, near the GTRA.”

Photo COLORADO SPRINGS, CO — From security systems and surveillance cameras to mandatory tracking of all sales, tough regulations will hit the Colorado medical marijuana industry hard beginning July 1.“Some of the major changes that are coming into effect are really going to affect how we deal with our patients,” Jesse Vriese, manager of Green Love Wellness in Colorado Springs, said. “We have to be very careful with who we serve. It is no longer friendly retial, it is more paperwork and business.”Among the new rules, dispensaries must keep track of all their patients and sales. Vriese welcomes such regulation.“Seed-to-sale, in my opinion, is very important,” he said. “I think it is a pain, and I think it is definitely going to be more work for us, but I think it is very important. I think it is something that needs to happen so the industry is regulated.”
