Control systems rely on accurate measurements coming in from the instrumentation in the process that measures pressures, temperatures, levels, flows and more. For wired instrumentation, it’s not only the accuracy of the measurement device itself, but the impact of the wiring path between it and the terminations into the control system that determines the signal’s […]

One quick example of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in action is temperature measurement. Traditionally, these measurements included piping or vessel penetrations, thermowells installed, RTD or thermocouple sensing elements and transmitters, wiring/fittings/junction boxes/conduit/cable trays/etc., marshalling panels and connections in the control system I/O. For critical temperature measurement and control this is still very important […]

Storage tanks holding volatile fluids must have reliable level measurements to avoid unsafe overfill conditions. A Control Engineering Asia article, Wireless vibrating fork technology enables Hengyang Petrochemical to implement cost-effective overfill prevention solution, describes how this petrochemical producer sought to reduce the risk of overfill conditions. The plant had existing non-contacting radar level measurement devices […]
