The top 5 most read articles online, from Feb. 25 to Mar. 3 for Control Engineering covered the Engineers’ Choice Awards, control systems with style, selecting a VFD scope, the future of the IIoT in manufacturing, and robotics as a service. Links to each article below.

1. 2019 Engineers’ Choice Awards

Spotlight on innovation: Best automation, control, and instrumentation products in 26 categories.

2. Does your control system have style?

Defining system language, look as important as operating parameters.

3. Selecting a scope for a variable frequency drive

Select the right oscilloscope to fit a variable frequency drive (VFD) application. Consider scope types, probes, and options. See eight factors to consider when choosing an oscilloscope.

4. The future of IIoT software in manufacturing

A guide to understanding and using data distribution service (DDS), time-sensitive networking (TSN), and OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) for advanced manufacturing applications.

5. Robotics as a service gaining traction in manufacturing

Robotics as a Service (RaaS), which allows manufacturers to leverage the benefits of industrial and collaborative robots in their facility without having to buy them, is becoming popular.

The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, Feb. 25 to Mar. 3, for articles published within the last two months.
