Choices of controllers that include an integrated HMI in one package are growing. These promise greater simplicity if the combination of elements works in your situation.
Industrial HMI developers consider how video game technology can change the way operators work with control systems. Video: ABB demonstrates some interesting possibilities.
Electric motors have received predominant attention from energy-efficiency standards and regulations due their vast industrial usage and well-documented design, performance, and test specifications.
It’s difficult to say what convergence of competing protocols will mean for wireless instrumentation users. See video.
Thermowells, while protecting temperature sensors from a process fluid, can undergo tremendous stresses. A new standard is designed to lower risk of failures.
Avoid Trips And Maximize Steam Output By Reviewing Your Control Equipment, Strategy, And Tuning.
Bluetooth Low Energy technology is a whole new technology that can benefit industrial communications.
Understanding the data and the standards for a deadly plant danger.
If there were a state of Control Engineering, everything in that state would be top secret. Here’s why.
Correct motor sizing is critical for maximum efficiency, as is making the right rewind-versus-replace determination.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
