Specifying intrinsically safe remote monitoring sensor systems for hazardous class I, division 1 environments

Tue, 23 May 2017 15:50:00 -0400

Wireless sensor networks frequently operate in hazardous areas where explosive atmospheres pose a safety risk to equipment and operators. A Class I, Division 1 hazardous area is defined as an environment where combustible gas, vapor or mist is present or is expected to be present for extended periods under normal...

Why the bus is Smurfed

Sat, 20 May 2017 18:03:00 -0400

In the early years of this century, choosing fieldbus meant limiting the field of potential suppliers to a smaller subset, since a number of the major players had incomplete or nonexistent offerings. The rest of technology wasn’t ready for fieldbus—maybe now it is.

Calibrating pressure instrumentation

Fri, 19 May 2017 12:27:00 -0400

From calibration interval, accuracy and documentation requirements through automating calibration pressures at the plant floor, today's tools offer multiple ways to streamline maintenance and ensure performance of pressure instrumentation.



The engineer’s guide to signal conditioning

Wed, 17 May 2017 11:22:00 -0400

Signal conditioning is one of the most important components of a data acquisition system because without optimizing real-world signals for the digitizer in use, you cannot rely on the accuracy of the measurement.



Take control of condition information

Wed, 17 May 2017 10:50:00 -0400

Why centralized machinery health management isn't just for the biggest companies.



Walmart's new sustainability initiative is coming after all our emissions

Mega-retailer's new Project Gigaton initiative invites 'suppliers to join in a commitment to eliminate 1 gigaton of emissions from their operations and supply chains.'



Ransomware and control system cyber security

Tue, 16 May 2017 00:42:00 -0400

DoS is typically accomplished by flooding the targeted machine to overload systems and prevent some or all legitimate requests from being fulfilled. However, it does not matter if the service/system is shutdown by the attacker or by the end-user in response to the attacker– the system is still shut down.




Process safety delayed

Mon, 15 May 2017 13:48:00 -0400

Some users and experts report process safety is largely paralyzed, but some progress and innovations keep plugging along.



Smart instruments enable improved pumping

Mon, 15 May 2017 13:26:00 -0400

Smart pumping applications are designed to adjust the speed of a pump to compensate for changing process conditions or plant requirements.



Versatility of thermal mass flow meters

Mon, 15 May 2017 13:17:00 -0400

The thermal mass flow market is one of the fastest growing flow meter segments. It will continue to rise, due in part to cost savings associated with energy management.



To hold a job today and in the future, learning doesn’t end with college, or ever

Fri, 12 May 2017 12:50:00 -0400

Political analysts will long debate over where Brexit, Trump and Le Pen came from. Many say income gaps. I’d say … not quite. I’d say income anxiety and the stress over what it now takes to secure and hold a good job.



What do process safety and the March for Science have in common?

Fri, 12 May 2017 11:51:00 -0400

'There are similar forces at work against those pushing for process safety and those marching in support of science. The real power of ignorance, inertia, entropy and short-sighted, unsafe production quotas is that they don't have to do anything to accomplish their destructive goals,' says Jim Montague.
