A 5-step approach to IIoT success
Successful network implementation starts with assessment of system and operations. by: Nils Buecker, Belden Reducing downtime, cutting costs and maintaining competitive advantages in production have always been primary goals for engineers. The onset of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will not change these objectives, but rather, it will alter how they are met. Interconnectivity […]Read MoreDave Blaida, PE / Automation / Big Data / Downtime / IIoT / Maintenance / Technology
What comes after digitization?
What comes after digitization? by: Bob Vavra, CFE Media As the oil and gas industry embraces the idea of the “digital oilfield” discussed in October, it’s important to note that there already is a lot of digital information floating around out there. We’ve had sensors and data screens for years; all of this is generated […]Read MoreDave Blaida, PE / Digital Oilfield / IIoT / Industrial Internet of Things / Oil and Gas Engineering
SCADA is not a middleware
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) can improve operations. Learn how. by: Arlen Nipper The term “supervisory control and data acquisition” (SCADA) refers to a set of industrial-software applications that can be configured to support management of almost any kind of discrete or process production. SCADA is found […]Read MoreDave Blaida, PE / Control Engineering / IIoT / Industrial Internet of Things / Internet for Engineers / Message-Oriented Middleware / MQTT / Plant Engineering / PLC Programming / Supervisory Control / Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition / SCADA
