The top 5 most read articles online, from Mar. 28 to Apr. 3 for Control Engineering covered cyber security protection, the 2016 Engineers' Choice Awards winners, Industrie 4.0 and ICS cyber security, heat exchanger control strategies, and data acquisition and analysis. Link to each article below. 

1. Cyber security protection enters a new era

Watch for a backdoor cyber security assault. End users, integrators, and device manufacturers need to adapt and prepare for this new reality. Follow these cyber security steps.

2. 2016 Engineers' Choice Awards winners

Best automation, control, and instrumentation products in 27 categories chosen by Control Engineering's print and digital audience.

3. Pay attention: Industrie 4.0 and ICS cyber security

Industrie 4.0 is propelling organizations and their production and service delivery capabilities far beyond steam power and factory electrification, and industrial control systems (ICSs) can provide a vital layer of protection to keep networks safe.

4. 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.

5. Ladder logic 401: Data acquisition and analysis

A programmable logic controller (PLC) is designed to not only provide information on signal levels, but it can also capture data and it can be analyzed, but there are a number of challenges the user faces from a software and logistical standpoint.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, March 28 to April 3, for articles published within the last two months.
