Industrial facilities should approach safety and security holistically by addressing critical requirements from the process control network to the perimeter of ... read more
A quick video tour of the exhibit floor getting a look at products and technologies on display.
The 100 largest system integrators in the industrial automation business—who they are and what they do.
In 2009, Control Engineering released a survey to determine how industrial users perceive threats to their networks, and what steps they’ve taken to defend against cyber attackers. The results then...
Air date: Wednesday, April 10, 2013. Ideas were presented from a leading editor, an HMI platform provider, and an end user so that you can get a clear picture of what the new face of industrial HMI...
To mitigate a machine hazard, might it work to install one small safety PLC, then slave the other distributed standard PLCs to the safety PLC? Would that avoid the need for a risk assessment for the...
Siemens suggests that efforts to improve efficiency need to examine complete drive systems from one end to the other. Improving just the motor may not yield the largest improvements. Video: Siemens’...
Why is knowing the difference between a machine actuator versus an actuator control important? The hazard on a machine is what’s really important to reducing risk! Understanding two standards-based...
When you finish a project, begin working to catalog what was built, the standards used (and improved), and where and how that work could be applied in future. Not-invented-here syndrome is a common...
