Dec. 28, 2022
Discrete outputs are the principle means for SIS to interact with the world.

In this article from Control Design's sibling publication Control, John Rezabek explains that although today's output modules offer more capability to detect more subtle changes, they only bear fruit if they're routinely monitored.
