Sensors Insights by Tom Moser

Pervasive Sensing
The sensors market in the process industries is undergoing a fundamental shift, primarily driven by the reduction of the cost of installed sensing points. Taking cost out of the equation has cleared the way for process industries to greatly expand their use of sensors, extending their focus beyond traditional process control and safety systems and entering an age of "pervasive sensing." Working with more information than ever before, refineries, chemical plants, and other industrial facilities will be able to achieve greater visibility into all aspects of their operations, allowing them to operate more safely, reliably, and profitably. continued
