Top 5 Plant Engineering articles September 2-8
The top 5 most read articles online, from September 2-8 for Plant Engineering covered hybridization benefits, control system connectivity, arc flash hazards, VFDs in injection molding, and IIoT baby steps. Links to each article below.
The basic configuration of electrical power systems for industrial and commercial applications has altered little for decades, but hybridization could change this in a disruptive and positive way.
Digitalization, IIoT and Industry 4.0 implementations need communication hubs, a role well-suited to PLCs and HMIs.
Be cognizant about hazards, preventive measures and the dire consequences of an arc flash event.
Variable frequency drives (VFDs) improves process cooling optimization and pump efficiency.
Collect usable data as the first step toward effective analysis.
The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on plantengineering.com, Sept. 2-8, for articles published within the last two months.
