Find Out How More Powerful CPUs Have Improved Process Controllers
Critical infrastructure sites and facilities are becoming increasingly dependent on interconnected physical and cyber-based real-time distributed control systems (RTDCSs). A mounting cybersecurity threat results from the nature of these ubiquitous and sometimes unrestrained communications ...
A Brief History of the Stuxnet Worm Including Its Targets, the Initial Findings, Possible Creators of the Worm and Its Effects
Readers Wonder What is the Best Hardware to Use When Remotly Handling Nuclear Waste. Do You Know of Any Multivariable Predictive Control Books?
Process Automation: Editor in Chief Walt Boyes takes a look at how existing standards for wireless products in industrial process plant applications compare with the real needs of process automation.
The committee plans to produce a standard by 2008 and currently appears to be on schedule. Although end-user demand for wireless is rapidly increasing, participation in the work of SP100 remains sparse.

2014's Inductees Took Very Different Paths to Our Process Automation Hall of Fame
This month marks Control's 30th anniversary, so I dusted off one of the three known remaining copies of our first issue. Dated October 1988, it debuted just in time for that year’s ISA show and at 284 pages, was the largest we ever printed. We got everybody who was anybody to write and/or ...
Paul Murrill, a member of the Process Automation Hall of Fame’s Class of 2014, receives his award from Control editor-in-chief, Paul Studebaker at his home in Baton Rouge, Louisana
Addressing the field device level requires engineering expertise and is what makes control system cyber security different than IT/OT cyber security. Automation/process/relay engineers, field instrument/relay technicians, etc. are not OT but Engineering whereas OT is the network engineers and ...
Juan Lopez from ORNL and I gave a presentation June 27th at the 2018 ISA Power Industry Division (POWID) Conference in Knoxville on cyber security of process sensors. As ISA POWID is an Instrumentation & Control conference, the lack of sensor discussions demonstrates the continuing gap between ...
Recently formed standards committee addresses vertical integration of wireless manufacturing and control systems for monitoring, control, alarm, and shutdown.
IN A RARE face-to-face open meeting at ISAs headquarters in Research Triangle Park, N.C., the members of ISAs SP100 committee heard 23 presentations from the automation vendors and significant consortia.
