ANSI/ISA-18.2, Management of Alarm Systems for the Process Industries, changed the world of alarm management when first published in 2009 with the introduction of activities grouped into the alarm management life cycle. That life cycle has since become globally recognized, as the standard has been adopted by the International Electrotechnical Commission and found wide use across the process industry sectors.
PLC-Based Control Systems Upgrades Many sites today have old, outdated control systems, ranging from older electro-mechanical and relay-based control systems to PLC-based systems that are now obsolete.

Many process industries operating in high corrosive environments take precautions to protect electrical and electronic equipment, but did you know your critical electronics may be more susceptible today than they were just five years ago?
The topic of our June Section Meeting will be an introduction into Augmented Reality (AR) technologies available for industrial manufacturing applications.
With the arrival of 5G technology, the manufacturing and production industries face their biggest transformation yet. Safer, flexible and more efficient systems will be possible thanks to the ultra-low-latency and reliability of 5G connectivity. This presentation will describe the benefits of 5G for Industrial IoT and the impact on smart manufacturing and smart production.
Evolution of LED Lighting for Smart Facilities https://youtu.be/0hFHgZQy2MI?t=453 About our topic The Internet of Things (IoT) is exploding across all markets and industries. Companies have an almost unlimited amount of possibilities with these new capabilities. Connected lighting is one solution…
Our September 2019 Section Meeting will look at digital transformation of process control systems.
This presentation will discuss sample-handling systems primarily for continuous analyzers; however Gas Chromatographs also use this system. These continuous analyzers are used in applications such as, stack monitors to measure Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, Carbon Monoxide and NOx. They are also used in other industrial applications as process control, ambient air monitors and environmental monitors.
