Control Engineering Top 5 most read articles online, for Sept. 29 to Oct. 5, open- vs. closed-loop control, Wi-Fi terms and definitions, four advantages of state-based controls, nano sensors, and wireless propagation fundamentals. Link to each article below.
Automatic control operations can be described as either open-loop or closed-loop. The difference is feedback.
Industrial wireless tutorials: WLANs (wireless local area networks) have a language, an "alphabet soup" of acronyms and buzzwords designed to facilitate deeper discussions of the technology used.
State-based control may increase your workload at first, but the benefits start to kick in and earn their worth quickly.
Think Again: Micromachining techniques are shrinking sensors, making devices less expensive with more capabilities. Microelectrical mechanical systems (MEMS) will evolve into nanoelectrical mechanical systems (NEMS).
Industrial wireless tutorials: Understanding wireless propagation fundamentals will help you understand what can happen to a wireless signal and how that can influence wireless signal reliability. Learn the 4 results of multipath.
