Electricity and Control November 2017What’s in it for YOU!

We have some wonderful insights in our November 2017 issue of Electricity+Control. New author in our magazine, Goran Novkovic, who promotes cybersecurity for critical infrastructure and manufacturing through public-speaking, blogs and articles, discusses the ‘Converging IT/OT environment’ and ways of protecting critical infrastructure within this environment.

Kevin Pillay of Siemens Africa, gives an interesting perspective on Africa’s ‘Mobility Revolution’ and how great the need is for Intelligent Mobility on the Continent.

Editors from Crown Publications visited Shaw Controls, manufacturer of E-houses and Motor Control Centres (MCCs) and found the experience fascinating.

There is an assessment of the performance achieved by a Northern Cape PV plant after the first year of operation.

Cargill discusses the recent trend that has emerged that shows how utility companies are increasingly turning to natural ester fluids to help them capture the operating efficiencies they need to remain competitive.

Heat Tracing is an interesting topic in our Temperature measurement feature showing that electrical heat tracing and steam heat tracing play an important role in maintaining temperatures.

A new generation of temperature controllers from Omron are designed to achieve optimal and automatic temperature control without human intervention and Mecosa describes how precise temperature control assures high quality steel.

All this … and so much more …

Please share your news … articles … case studies! We want it all!
