Is wireless for you?
From telephones to remote TV controls to alarm systems, wireless is everywhere! It is the hottest and latest technological breakthrough. Or is it? This White Paper compares wired and wireless applications, and the benefits and limitations of this 100-year-old communications technology.
The four-fold method of noise and vibration control
This White Paper on noise and vibration control will help control engineers get a better understanding of how passive acoustical systems can best be used to improve instrument designs at the lowest cost.
Distributed firewall for SCADA and industrial networks
The sensitive nature of PLC and DCS devices requires a higher level of network segmentation and advanced defense solutions. This "special to the web" White Paper defines the problem and introduces a new approach to distributing a firewall throughout your SCADA and industrial networking environment.
The pros and cons of alarm management projects
Although a lot of alarm management projects start and fail due to poor understanding of the scope of the probelm, lack of resources or money, loss of momentum, and no identifiable return on investment, the real key to success is to establish responsibility.

Process, instrument and plant engineers are challenged continuously by productivity and plant operating efficiency objectives as well as ensuring plant compliance with an ever expanding list of regulations.
Purge and pressurization is an alternative hazardous location protection concept that allows lesser rated equipment to be used in hazardous areas by segregating the equipment from the hazardous material.
Today's utilities operate in highly productive business environments that are very competitive. As such, they need to comply with stringent regulatory requirements to prevent downtime that may negatively impact customers. A slight failure of equipment can translate to immediate consequences from both a financial and safety perspective.
This next in Control's Essentials series, "Essentials of the Connected Enterprise" provides industrial automation professionals with up-to-date information on the advances in communications and computing technology.
Find out how a full featured embedded HMI for machines can improve operational agility and increase manufacturing performance with less effort. Machines delivered without a full featured HMI can cause operational issues such as lower operational agility, inability to continuously improve, decreased predictability, higher risk and increased total cost of ownership. A full featured embedded HMI can alleviate these issues by providing better information on the plant floor, along with greater connectivity and fast integration into your production system. Download the white paper to get more details on the new Wonderware solution to these problems.
