Did you just see something extraordinary in the recorded data or was it a data anomaly in measurement, communications, or data aggregation? Data collection should help us learn, not confuse. Heed these five strategies for better industrial data.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) equipment should be integrated even into older manufacturing systems to optimize facility and system operations. Think you’re using IIoT technologies? Are you adding sensors in 12 steps or 6 steps?
With processing power increasing, controllers tucked in input/output (I/O) communication blocks make distributed controls easier than ever. With the increased controller capabilities, higher speed/more open communication protocols and more powerful, lower cost microprocessors, more distributed and autonomous systems seems likely.
Watlow's D4T with Intuition is a data logger that features field removable input/output (I/O) modules for design flexibility.
AutomationDirect’s Productivity2000 programmable controller line includes discrete and analog input and output modules.
The official ballot is open for voting for Control Engineering North American print and digital edition subscribers, until Dec. 21.
