The top 5 most read articles online, for Dec. 7-13 for Control Engineering covered the System Integrators of the Year; Engineers' Choice finalists; PLCs, PACs, or IPCs; fixing PID; and System Integrator of the Year winner Matrix Technologies. Link to each article below. 

1. System Integrators of the Year: The future is today for 2016 winners

The System Integrators of the Year combine technology with a customer-centric approach. See roundtable video discussion.

2. 2016 Engineering Choice Awards' Finalists 

The Control Engineering Engineers' Choice Awards highlight some of the best new control, instrumentation and automation products as chosen by Control Engineering's print and online subscribers. 

3. PLC vs. PAC vs. IPCs

Know the features, limits, and compatibilities to select the right controller: programmable logic controller (PLC), programmable automation controller (PAC), or industrial PC (IPC).

4. Fixing PID, Part 3

PID: Proportional-integral-derivative controllers may be ubiquitous, but they’re not perfect. Consider how deadtime affects integral action.

5. Matrix Technologies, Maumee, Ohio

A member of the Control Engineering System Integrator Hall of Fame, Matrix Technologies continues to build on its long history of service to the integrator community. 

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, December 7-13, for articles published within the last two months.
