Reliable wireless technologies for industrial applications
Cabled communication may be the industrial standard and yet many different applications exist where cables can be a nuisance, or more of an effort, or simply not an option. In such cases, a good alternative is “on air” communication, in other words remote control. This white paper describes typical applications where the question “Cabled or wireless?” requires serious thought. And it presents some wireless systems which have been developed for just such applications.
Selecting switchgear for valve position monitoring
When it comes to suitable switchgear for valve position monitoring, valve manufacturers have many options. Different electromechanical switch and non-contact sensor designs are available. This white paper describes the conditions and criteria which impact use in individual valve application fields. It shows which switches are suited to which applications. And it presents examples of how the manufacturers of industrial valves and controls integrate switches and sensors in their surrounding constructions.
