Tune into this recent Manufacturing Hub podcast where Opto 22's Benson Hougland discusses how control systems have changed over time and what the future looks like.

In today's world of industrial automation, podcasts, webinars, online forums and communities are playing a vital role in educating engineers and keeping them informed of the latest technologies. The Manufacturing Hub podcast is growing in popularity and has become a great resource for all levels of automation professionals.

Hosted by Dave Griffith and Vlad Romanov, this podcast hosts a variety of guests and speakers from different industries and offers valuable perspectives. You might recall Opto 22 participated in one of the 2021 webcasts, so we were delighted when Dave and Vlad asked Benson to return to kick off their 2022 series.

Their latest episode covers the Evolution of Control Systems, and Opto 22's company history and product timeline is the perfect illustration of how the industry has changed over the last 50 years.

You'll hear Benson's insight on the factors driving technology evolution, advice on product and skill development, and how product support becomes a critical issue when updating systems.
