Control Engineering Top 5 most read articles online, for Aug. 31-Sep. 6, covered industrial control panel builders changing, industrial control system protection, Internet of Things risk management, hybrid machines and CNC, and control system threat levels. Link to each article below. 

1. Standard for industrial control panel builders changing

UL 508 is being phased out and replaced by UL 60947-4, which is designed to harmonize international standards by UL, the Canadian Standards Association, and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in Europe. 

2. Protecting industrial control systems

Operational technology relies on outdated security models based on invalid assumptions.

3. Managing the risk of the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly, and more devices are going online. Are industry, consumers, and the companies creating products and services and integrating the technologies ready to deal with the security that goes with protecting the devices and users? 

4. Hybrid machines, standard CNC

As the era of additive and subtractive machine tools emerges, today’s controls are well suited to handle the challenges, according to a provider of computer numerical controls (CNCs) and training. 

5. High to severe control system threat levels

One in four respondents to the Control Engineering 2015 Cyber Security Study identified a high cyber security threat to their control system. Four additional findings from the study related to threats to control systems are below.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, August 31 to September 6, for articles published within the last two months.
