  • Why users need one twisted-pair bus
    We have a new contributing editor, John Rezabek, taking over the On the Bus column on ControlGlobal.com. Rezabek is a well-known fieldbus expert and process control specialist at ISP Corp. in Lima, Ohio.
  • How to improve network security
    There's no such thing as a 100% secure control system, but learning and understanding the risks associated with security standards, and how to mitigate them are a start. Check out this to-do list.
  • Cordsets survive a great flood
    This case history demonstrates how cabling and connectors simplified networking for engineers at an upstate N.Y. wastewater plant, and aided the plant's recovery following a devastating deluge.
  • Practical methods for protecting industrial networks
    The Fall Issue of Industrial Networking magazine features a cover story that discusses ways process control engineers can protect against potentially destructive attacks on vulnerable networks.

  • The only evil

    There are two kinds of network security. Real and imagined, and it can be hard to tell them apart, especially if you don't know how they work and the problems they're supposed to solve.

  • Fiberoptic switch improves reliability

    In this Product Exclusive, a new line of industrial Ethernet switches that increase network reliability by providing an alternative path for message flow in the event of a network-segment failure is unveiled.

  • I/O today, I/O tomorrow

    Based on the results of a recent survey, this article takes a look at how users implement I/O today, what they like, dislike, and expect to happen with the systems they’ll use tomorrow.
