There is an emerging need for highly flexible and adaptable 'smart' devices in control system architectures — devices that can execute simple control functions by making decisions independent of a central processor. You can achieve this local decision-making ability at the component level with DeviceLogix™ component technology.
Power quality is related to fluctuations in the electrical supply in the form of momentary interruptions, voltage sags or swells, transients, harmonic distortion, electrical noise, and flickering lights, among others.
A common question when deciding between a soft starter or a drive is, which one to select? The purpose of this publication is to show similarities and differences between the soft starter and the drive. When comparing the two devices, you should be able to pick the best device for the application.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is poised to change the capability of businesses to monitor and measure an almost unlimited number of different objects. Deploying this capability will be crucial for the Oil & Gas Industry over the coming decades, particularly as it relates to flaring and cold flaring (venting).

When it comes to wireless communications, most industrial environments are three to five years behind the carpeted space. After years of focusing heavily on corporate office and branch WLANs, many organizations are surprised at what they’re finding when they look to leverage today’s advanced mobility tools beyond the carpeted space.
As a little boy watching Star Trek: The Next Generation with my dad, I dreamt that one day I’d have a PADD (a tablet for those who’ve never watched Star Trek) and my entire desk would be a giant touchscreen display. Now, with touchscreen tablets having become mainstream devices and larger, more expansive, touch panels being produced, we are beginning to see them not only in consumer devices but also in high performance applications, such as aircraft avionics and industrial control systems. These commercial markets demand 100% accuracy, reliability and consistent sensitivity.
Leveraging Predictive Analytics with Industrial Internet of Things to Deliver Operational Excellence
By David Loshin, Knowledge Integrity
Statistical Process Control, or SPC, is used to look at things that have already happened and see if the outcome (often products in a manufacturing environment) are in conformance. This white paper describes how to take SPC to the next level and incorporate IIoT measures to improve productivity and quality.
A motor branch circuit, including a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) and one or more Motor Protection Circuit Breakers (MPCBs), is a complex system and its performance depends on all components, devices, configuration and their interconnection. This publication explains some considerations for the selection of MPCBs. The information in this paper has been developed through known engineering principles and validated by thorough testing and simulation.
