One quick example of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in action is temperature measurement. Traditionally, these measurements included piping or vessel penetrations, thermowells installed, RTD or thermocouple sensing elements and transmitters, wiring/fittings/junction boxes/conduit/cable trays/etc., marshalling panels and connections in the control system I/O. For critical temperature measurement and control this is still very important […]
