  • Wireless Security for Water/Wastewater Networks

    Wireless technologies have been used for decades in the water/waste water industry in a multitude of applications including tank level indication, pump and motor control, flow and pressure monitoring, etc. However, recent concerns regarding the potential for hacking and cyber-attacks into these wireless systems have raised the importance of wireless security to a new high. This paper will discuss security issues within an Industrial Wireless Network, and address the ways in which these networks can be designed to be more reliable while being more secure.

  • Know Your TCO: A Look at Medium-Voltage VFDs

    In this white paper, we analyze what factors contribute to TCO (total cost of ownership) of a drive, how to calculate the NPV (net present value), explain the inverse relationship between reliability and TCO and how longevity of product and customer service and support affect TCO.

  • Logic Solver for Tank Overfill Protection

    When a storage facility's tank level rises above safe limits, a logic solver that is part of a Safety Instrumented System (SIS) initiates final elements to restore the process to a safe state. This can include shutting off input feeds to the tank by isolating the pump and closing the input valve. This white paper explores the possibilities available to SIS designers of tank overfill protection systems when using a logic solver. It includes examples of system topographies and their associated Safety Integrity Level (SIL) calculations.
