1. Goodbye Windows XP; Hello IsXP?

Microsoft Windows XP support ends April 8. What happens April 9? Three things to remember. 

2. Integrating HART data from smart devices

HART calling! Your field devices and actuators want to tell you more of what is happening in the plant, all you have to do is listen. 

3. Machine safety standard merger: One global machine safety standard

An ongoing discussion of machine guarding topics, including solutions assessments, regulatory compliance, gap analysis, operating efficiencies and cost savings, as well as all relevant safety standards, such as those from NFPA, ANSI, RIA, IEC, ISO and OSHA. 

4. 6 reasons why system integration is not a commodity

Integrator Update: Reduce risk and improve results by not treating automation and control system integration as a commodity; six reasons follow explaining why system integration shouldn't be treated as a commodity. 

5. Ultrasonic flowmeter for pipeline monitoring

Honeywell's USM GT400 Ultrasonic Flowmeter is designed to reduce the amount of effort needed to maintain pipeline metering and also features cloud-based technology to provide stability during flow perturbations. 

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, April 6-12, for articles published within the last two months.
