February 2016 Issue
Control Design is the only industrial automation magazine dedicated to the automation information needs of industrial machine builders, and OEMs that build the machines that make industry work. SUBSCRIBE to the print edition here.
In the February 2016 edition of Control Design, we explore new levels of energy efficiency. Monitoring can improve power use, but can it really help to measure total cost of ownership? Plus, a new panel of experts joins us to discuss how machine-to-machine communications and the Internet of Things are the same, and yet different. Other features include a case study on how gestures and motions can be used on mobile devices to operate machines, a piece on how to choose between purge/pressure, dust-ignition-proof and intrinsic safety designs for equipment in hazardous locations, a product showcase of sensors and much more.
