With a production line requiring tens to hundreds of workers for daily operations, manufacturers see automated production and man-machine collaboration as innovative ways to increase production efficiency while cutting labor costs.
By Manny Arceo, ASCO Numatics
Whitepaper examines and explains the differences among the world’s major temperature ratings for solenoid valves — and serves as a concise guide to understanding and applying these ratings in order to correctly specify these components.
By Geoffrey Bowers, Vega
Radiation-based continuous level gauges provide highly reliable measurements because no part of the instrument system is exposed to the process fluid and requires no penetration into the process vessel. This paper presents a discussion on the effects of a dynamic vapor space, where the atmosphere above the process fluid changes due to reaction of process fluids and/or changes in temperature and pressure.

When deploying wireless communications in applications like monorail systems and bottle filling machines, traditional antennas’ design requirements are difficult. Using a radiating cable can simplify your installation and give you reliable communications. This white paper takes a look at ways a radiating cable can be used and factors to consider for successful installation.

Typical device commissioning processes are time-consuming and potentially error-prone. This whitepaper describes a new way to perform device configuration, commissioning, and validation – while reducing time by up to 80%. Use device templates and bulk configuration in AMS Device Manager to significantly reduce the number required steps and improve configuration accuracy.

White paper shows how to select the best sensor for a particular application and ways to improve the accuracy of the sensor you choose. In particular, it details the reasons why 4-wire RTD sensors are almost always the best choice for high-accuracy temperature applications.
By The OPC Foundation
The OPC Foundation has further developed its standard into the OPC Unified Architecture (UA) which provides solutions to the identified drawbacks of OPC Classic while meeting the requirements for use in a modern device architecture.
Many equipment manufacturers have switched from point-to-point (hard) wiring to connector-based cable assemblies in factory and process automation and control systems. Adopting progressive connectivity solutions has improved their unit costs and productivity.
Inaccurate measurements and process oversights can result in imperfect product, decreased output, non-compliance with industry regulations and requirements, and unscheduled downtime. This trend report explores how Smart Meter Verification can help you not only minimize downtime and confirm the accuracy of your measurements, but also cut costs and maintain compliance.
Glass-reinforced polymer (GRP) composite material for protective enclosures is electromagnetically transparent, making it easier to deploy wireless instrumentation.
By Copper Development Association
The third installment of The Copper Development Association's (CDA) Motor Management Program, Repair Specifications, and Preventive and Predictive Maintenance, provides an outline for creating motor repair specifications and an effective maintenance plan.
By Tempered Networks
White paper describes the Tempered Networks solution, a network segmentation product based on the International Society of Automation (ISA) TR100.15.01 architecture. The solution is used to create private overlay networks on top of shared network infrastructure. The Tempered Networks solution provides the enterprise with “Private Networks as a Service.”
By Brian Roth, Antaira Technologies
White paper describes Antaira Technologies’ redundancy serial-to-Ethernet device servers and how they can eliminate single points of failure for networked devices while also assuring data redundancy to support data transmission with dual independent host connections simultaneously.

With the sluggish rate of recovery hovering around 1.8 to 2.2 percent since 2009, many US manufacturers are desperate to gain some traction toward double digit growth. But how and where will they find the turbo boost required to fully escape the impact of the Great Recession?
Labeling is frequently considered a background process that doesn’t get any attention until it causes a problem. As a result, bar code and RFID labeling practices and software have become dated at many enterprises failing to keep pace with changing business needs. Migrating from decentralized labeling to a modern, centralized solution generally helps
By JMA Wireless
Since its introduction in 2008, LTE technology has been transforming and many different versions have been and continue to be introduced into the marketplace. Currently, LTE is deployed in approximately 20 different frequency bands, including 5 of the 6 channel bandwidth options.
By Todd Landry, JMA Wireless
When it comes to determining the best fit for in-building or outdoor wireless needs it is best to discount the hype and really think about what you are trying to accomplish.
By Emerson Process Management
Most capital projects don’t come within 25% of their approved budget or schedule. With so much riding on your project, you must reduce the risks to your project’s success and ongoing performance. It’s time to look at projects differently - see strategies to deliver your project on time and within budget.
By Robert Gee, Maxim Integrated
Designs of digital input and output modules for automated industrial controllers have, historically, been discrete in nature. Industry 4.0, the next revolution in the way factories run, will demand not only cloud control, but also faster throughput to maximize efficiency and profits. This white paper has practical information on building the PLCs customers want.
