Plant Engineering top 5 most read articles from Oct. 3-9, covered IIoT success, Ethernet and the IIoT, Engineering Leaders Under 40, wireless remote monitoring advances, and motor efficiency standards. Link to each article below. 

1. IIoT success requires a change of mindset

Speakers at the 2016 Global Automation and Manufacturing Summit (GAMS) event at IMTS 2016 discussed the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) from a variety of perspectives, which are highlighted.

2. Is Ethernet the key to IIoT?

IIoT applications demand a sensible migration path and a robust network.

3. 2016 Engineering Leaders Under 40

The 2016 honorees share a common profession, but they have uncommon skills and interests. Read about the 30 Leaders.

4. Advances in wireless remote monitoring 

Wireless monitoring is helping users solve problems by integrating new and existing technologies across a common infrastructure to get data into the hands of those who need it—securely.

5. New regulations will improve energy efficiency beyond existing motor efficiency standards 

While motor efficiency regulations may make the news, many other energy conservation standards are involved in similar rulemaking processes. These new and updated regulations will have a strong affect on the automation industry, particularly for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and end users.

This list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on www.plantengineering.com, October 3-9, for articles published within the last two months.
