Industrial Cybersecurity
Whether it’s a kid hacking a military super computer that is trying to blow up the world like in "Wargames” or an attack from a diabolical genius trying to teach the government a lesson in "Live Free or Die Hard”, we have grown up seeing the importance of cybersecurity. Cybersecurity is defined as the protection of computer systems from theft or damage to the hardware, software or the information on them. While it is not always life and death as in the movies, the information processed and saved on our computers is vital to our world.

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)
In case you were not aware, SCADA stands for "Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition". These systems provide centralized monitoring and control of all instruments and processes within a facility. Just as each facility is unique, so is the type, size, and scope of SCADA systems. Things to consider when putting together a SCADA solution include the size of the facility, types of controls, information required, security concerns, user interface requirements, number of points, and the level of security.

Honeywell recently obsoleted the STT350 series. There are other STT series that Honeywell had previously obsoleted. If you get a call for one of these series, you will need to cross that series over to the STT750 or STT850 series. A major difference between these two temperature transmitters is that the STT750 uses HART communication.

In most Industries, youth dominates the field. New blood, new ideas, and a bright future with educated young adults who are pushing to succeed and prove themselves. But on the Industrial Process floor, that is not the case. Anyone who is familiar with Heat Treating/forging, Aerospace, Bio-pharmaceutical, or Power Generation knows that the presence of young faces eager to learn is few and far between.

Control Valves and Actuators
Valves and valve actuators are critical components in any industrial process facility. Industrial control valves are devices that regulate, direct, or control flow and distribute fluids or gases across a facility. With the addition of an actuator you can automatically control theses valves. While manually operated valves require someone to monitor and operate the device, a power-operated actuator allows a valve to be adjusted remotely and enables rapid operation of large valves...

Chart Recorders for the Digital World
In a world of smart phones, portable tablets, remote access, and living our lives completely connected to social media, why is it that we are still using antiquated paper recorders for our data acquisition within high tech manufacturing facilities across the country? With technology literally at our finger tips every moment of the day, it should be an easy transition to move from an old paper chart recorder and upgrade to a paperless recorder with a high resolution touch screen display and secure remote access.
