In this podcast, David Clayton at ARC Advisory Group, talks with Jim Montague, Control's executive editor, about the companies on this year's Top 50 list and the economic and technical trends affecting them, including the resurgent natural gas sector, process control in developing economies, and possible mega projects.
The Frame Application is a software application that enables a graphical interface or 'view' used to configure, maintain and diagnose intelligent measurement devices from different leading suppliers. A Frame functions as a "window" or "view" that displays device parameters and information by way of an installed DTM provided by the device supplier. This combination provides a simple, clear and easy-to-understand device management environment that can change your view of the device by indicating diagnostic warnings of potential problems which may help you reduce maintenance and operation costs.
Natural gas and oil production involves the use of monitoring and control instrumentation with continuous gas needs. This is challenging for sites in remote locations with limited power resources. In this video, Moore Industries looks at one real world example solved by our HCS HART Concentrator System. Watch this video for a real-world examples.
