Newsletter: Volume 18 – Issue 10

Happy Halloween! For the second issue of the fall season we have lined up some pretty good treats and a couple ways to help you avoid some tricks. First up for this issue is AutomationDirect’s 8 product selectors to help you determine which products fit your need, helping you to avoid over spending or being under equipped. And to help deter those long-distance tricks, the second article covers cellular remote access and how it is improving reliability and cutting costs. Our supplier profile for this issue covers Integra Enclosures and their expansive line of polycarbonate enclosures. For the people who prefer treats of data over candy, there are a pair of articles about acquiring data and improving process control. Finally, for those who prefer to automate their tricks we have a video on how to make your own Halloween box prop.

White Paper- PLCs & PACs Simplify Data Acquisition

Today’s companies need detailed and timely information about process variables and production amounts, as well as alarms in real time. In the past, PLCs did not have the capabilities to provide such information, and PACs were not yet widely available. Modern PLCs and PACs perform basic data acquisition as part of real-time control tasks. Download the white paper
