The top 5 most read articles online, for Jan. 11-17 for Control Engineering covered intelligent and efficient PLC programming, Microsoft Windows XP Embedded, the 2015 SI Giants, flow measurement challenges, and heat exchanger control strategies. Link to each article below. 

1. The long goodbye to Microsoft Windows XP Embedded

Microsoft’s extended support for Windows XP Embedded ends on January 12, 2016, and those using the system after the expiration date need to take stock of their situation with a complete system inventory to assess the systems’ support availability and where upgrades are really needed.

3. 2015 System Integrator Giants

The System Integrator Giants program (SI Giants) lists the top 100 system integrators among companies listed in the CFE Media Global System Integrator Database, ranked solely on total system integration revenue. 

4. Overcoming flow measurement challenges

Matching the flowmeter to the application can help engineers overcome flow measurement issues. Magnetic, vortex, and differential pressure (dP) flowmeters are the leading technologies used to measure volumetric flow or flow velocity. Know when to use each.

5. Applying heat exchanger control strategies

Integrating control schemes, such as feedback, cascade, and feedforward techniques, can satisfy the control requirements of even highly challenging heat exchanger temperature control applications.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, January 11-17, for articles published within the last two months.
