The top 5 most read articles online, from Jan. 28 to Feb. 3 for Control Engineering covered process closure benefits, the System Integration Giants, the future of IIoT software, MQTT’s role as an IoT message transport, and primary and secondary flow measurement. Links to each article below.
A process closure is easily misunderstood, but it can provide a process manufacturer many potential benefits such as increased profits and safer workers.
Three new companies joined the 2019 System Integrator Giants list in a year when most of the world’s top 100 integration companies saw overall business growth.
A guide to understanding and using data distribution service (DDS), time-sensitive networking (TSN), and OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) for advanced manufacturing applications.
Messaging queuing telemetry transport’s (MQTT) role as an Internet of Things (IoT) message transport derives from its simple design, when it began as an industrial communicator for a pipeline supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system.
This article discusses a novel method to analyze the performance of the primary and secondary flow measurements by separating repeatability and accuracy (bias shift) without having to assume the PM is always accurate and repeatable and identifies whether the issue is with the PM or with the SM.
The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, Jan. 28 to Feb. 3, for articles published within the last two months.
