Next-generation industrial PCs (IPCs) — features, benefits and trends

Supplied by Advantech Australia on 15 June, 2015

How can the next generation of IPCs be enhanced to better meet industry’s needs? What technology will propel IPCs to the next level of effectiveness?

Bioenergy production and monitoring - an eBook

Supplied by SICK on 29 May, 2015

Bioenergy, produced by biomass and biogas combustion, is the world’s most common form of renewable energy production. It is a carbon-fuel energy source, but the difference when compared to coal and natural gas is that the fuel is captured from the earth’s biosphere, making it a carbon-neutral process if the fuel is supplied from a renewable source.

Precise measurement key to biogas meeting its green promise

Supplied by AMS Instrumentation & Calibration on 27 May, 2015

Biogas produces clean, green electricity capable of helping reduce global CO2 and methane emissions. But producing biogas itself is a dirty process, prone to wide variations in operating conditions and product throughput.

Troubleshoot and analyse your industrial processes efficiently by using data historians

Supplied by Schneider Electric Industry Business on 23 January, 2015

Historian software is used to record trends and historical information about industrial processes for troubleshooting and analytical purposes.

Designing a safer future - local and international safety standards

Supplied by Rockwell Automation on 25 September, 2014

Safety standards give designers tools to quantify risk and provide a structured framework to implement integrated safety lifecycle design.

Emission monitoring – the first step to making your plant safe and sustainable - an eBook

Supplied by Westwick-Farrow Pty Ltd on 04 September, 2014

Monitoring of emissions is important for many industries: from the ‘dirtiest’ polluters (coal-fired thermal power stations) through to medium ones (paper mills, cement plants, chemical producers, iron and steel mills) and the ‘cleanest’ polluters (food and beverage producers, water and wastewater plants).

How to test oil quality without the delay of lab tests

Supplied by ifm efector on 28 August, 2014

Laboratory tests have been the only way to test the quality of oil running critical machinery such as heavy gearboxes and hydraulic power packs.

The new best-in-class flow monitoring technology

Supplied by AMS Instrumentation & Calibration Pty Ltd on 13 August, 2014

Following the industry best practices, your plant probably uses some kind of analyser technology that needs sample flow monitoring (mass spectrometers, optical spectrometers, photometers, etc).

Energy target setting and performance review

Supplied by Emerson on 05 August, 2014

This white paper provides best practice methodology that will help process industry users improve their energy efficiency.

The human element of the Safety Advisor's job - things that can (and do) go wrong

04 August, 2014

Health and Safety Advisors are the heart of the organisation in terms of knowledge about health and safety issues and preventing incidents. However, they are still humans, which means that they, too, can make mistakes.

5 reasons to upgrade your old DCS to a new automation system

Supplied by NHP Electrical Engineering Products Pty Ltd on 03 July, 2014

 An older DCS is typically not capable of running a modern process plant at optimum levels, creating increased costs and possibly causing excessive downtime.  


A design guide: deploying Resilient Ethernet Protocol in a converged plantwide Ethernet system

Supplied by Rockwell Automation Australia on 27 June, 2014

This CPwE-REP design guide explores deploying the Resilient Ethernet Protocol (REP) within the Converged Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) reference architectures. REP delivers better convergence characteristics and functions as an alternative to the resiliency protocols described in the CPwE Design and Implementation Guide (DIG).

The fourth industrial revolution: a case study

Supplied by Siemens Ltd on 16 June, 2014

This white paper takes a look at Siemens’ electronics plant in Amberg, Germany. There, products already communicate with production machines, and IT systems control and optimise all processes to ensure the lowest possible defect rate.
