Control Engineering Top 5 most read articles online, for Feb. 23-Mar. 1 covered artificial intelligence for control engineering, the 2015 Engineers’ Choice winners, selecting and applying VFDs, remote access to a DCS system, and a secure automation system. Link to each article below.
Robotics, cars, and wheelchairs are among artificial intelligence beneficiaries, making control loops smarter, adaptive, and able to change behavior, hopefully for the better.
A total of 26 winners and 27 honorable mentions were named for the 2015 Engineers’ Choice Awards, which were voted on by Control Engineering’s print and digital audience.
Clear understanding of the application, noise sources, and configuration parameters ensures peak variable speed drive (VFD) performance, efficiency, and reliability.
Benefits of adding remote access to your DCS system include lower cost service, higher service speed, and changes can be made to similar processes with less effort.
Video: Bedrock Automation has designed a control system that features a programmable logic controller (PLC), backplane, power supply, and I/O modules, all with cyber security in mind from inception.
The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, February 23 to March 1, for articles published within the last two months.
