August 2003 North American print edition articles of interest may include:

  • Cover Story: 'See' the Results '' — Vision and code readers feed data acquisition systems, analyzing more applications with greater consistency and easier setup than ever before. Here's how it's done.

  • '' Once Written, Often Used '' — Multi-platform programming software is not a new idea, but a transition is underway to stretch beyond IEC 61131-3 languages and into system-wide architectures that could change how control engineers interact with both hardware and software.

  • '' Product Focus: AC Drives Trend to Efficient, Modular Designs '' — Whether you call them ac adjustable-speed drives (ASDs)—the name preferred by most—or use other labels, such as variable-speed drives or variable-frequency drives, or frequency converters as the international community prefers, ASDs excel at one key point: increasingly capable control of ac motors.
