Project management, in contrast, involves many more people. There are those who will discover and understand the business requirements, who will make strategic decisions about technology choice, who will set the project’s goals and establish metrics. In short, good project management is holistic, not limited.
In Part 2 of this two-part article we apply our method to a real-world application and show how, by combining estimation methods with thermistor characterization data, we can achieve high accuracy measurements over a wide temperature range using the simple voltage divider circuit we described in Part 1.
This two-part article describes how to use a simple voltage divider circuit with a thermistor to achieve high-accuracy temperature readings over broad measurement ranges. Part one discusses the circuit and various temperature estimation methods.
A variety of linear position sensing technologies is currently available. When choosing the right one for a specific application it is important to understand the differences in performance among them.
This article discusses the use of guided-wave radar (GWR), also known as time-domain reflectometry (TDR), in your steam loop, including the way that this technology functions and how it differs from more traditional forms of level indication.
In this article, we review some of the latest trends and system considerations involved when designing sensors and transmitters for industrial automation applications.
When it comes to industrial wireless, many developers prefer IEEE 802.15.4 —especially when they’re looking for a reliable, low-cost, and low-power-consumption wireless technology option.
If you want to either specify a sensor or acquire meaningful data from a sensor, you first need to understand terms such as total error band, accuracy, and precision.
Sensor signal conditioners with built-in correction algorithms can greatly aid sensor system designers as long as they understand which algorithm to use and when.
Understand how best to use laser displacement sensors to measure the thickness of products at high speeds and from long standoff distances.
