From Greg and Stan's 'deal breakers,' to Yokogawa's IIoT architecture, these were this month's most-read stories on ControlGlobal.com

Top 10 MN1

1. 26 things to not do in temperature, flow, valve, differential pressure and pH applications Books and courses in academia tend to address control issues on a more theoretical level, and even when partnering with industry, some practical information may be lacking. Greg McMillan and Stan Weiner offer their list of 'deal breakers' with regard to these vital applications. Read it here. 2. Criteria and procedure for controller tuning Characteristically, applications are nonlinear and relatively slow. Here, Russ Rhinehart discusses a heuristic approach, which he says is fast, has small impact on the processes, and includes human supervision. Read it here. 3. Resource…

Cybersecurity of nuclear reactors

The potential for remotely turning reactors into weapons is independent of their country of origin.

Q: Thanks for your answer concerning nuclear reactor hacking through the Internet. I would also like to learn if total cyber safety can be guaranteed by eliminating all connections to the Internet or any other network? Can they still be attacked? Also, what is your view of the safety (regular and…
