In-person training for process instrumentation and control (PIC) provides valuable training on-site for engineers, but online education can save time and money for everyone involved while giving engineers a base of knowledge they can build from.
Control Engineering's most clicked articles in April 2019 included stories about rate-predictive control, Engineers' Choice Awards, feedforward control, object-oriented programming, and more. Miss something? You can catch up here.
Flexible multi-conductor sensor/actuator cable is available from AutomationDirect in 24 AWG and 22 AWG with 3, 4 or 5 unshielded conductors, and in customer specified one-foot increment lengths.
Microflex's Pixel Signs PB series process bar displays, which make it easy to monitor virtually any process data and features an electronic bar display that uses multicolor LEDs to visualize almost any process data value.
Articles about rate-predictive control, the Engineers' Choice Awards, feedforward control, temperature sensor calibration, and connecting quality and process data were Control Engineering’s five most clicked articles from April 15-21. Miss something? You can catch up here.
Feedforward controls applied to a process, with limited, measurable disturbances, can keep the process variable close to the setpoint.
MIT researchers have developed a sensor that can monitor wiring in a building or ship, and signal when repairs are needed.
AutomationDirect's ProSense DGA differential pressure gauges are used to measure and display difference in air pressure between two reference points in inches of water.
Experience is required to properly design and apply solids handling systems. Accurately measuring the quantity of solids in a tank or silo is crucial to product management, custody control, and transfer.
Measure multiple variables to deliver data-rich IIoT applications.
