Description:

"Russian Roulette" or the "New Normal"?

Automation engineers on LinkedIn heatedly debate the pros and cons of using standard COTS smartphones and tablets in industrial settings. Meanwhile, industry analysts like Gartner and ARC Advisory Group forecast tremendous growth in BYOD (bring your own device) usage.

Are there reasons to use off-the-shelf mobile devices in industrial automation? What are the advantages and disadvantages, and what do you need to think about before moving ahead? This white paper discusses environmental, safety, security, connectivity, and other factors to consider and includes specific advice for choosing device types suited to your industrial application.
