Temperature, pressure, and measurements from process control instrumentation are increasingly being recognized as key components for industrial asset health management specifically and for digital transformation overall. Determining why production unexpectedly stops mid-operation, or preemptively avoiding such stoppages, requires diagnostic data that can only come from the machines themselves. Gathering that data has been a mainstay of industrial operations for a long time. Viewing, analyzing, and applying the lessons of that data either to maintenance or real-time operations is the ongoing challenge.
Experienced personnel who understand measurement instrumentation—its potential as well as the limits—can help temper expectations and ensure digital transformation efforts are a success. Find out more in this edition of InTech Focus focused on temperature and pressure measurement.
