Control Engineering article highlights 3 IIoT case studies

See how system integrators in water/wastewater, natural gas production, and manufacturing leveraged MQTT and industrial edge devices to securely access and use key data.

If your goal is to get useful data from field devices and legacy systems, you’ve probably found that putting together an IIoT system is complicated, requiring many OT and IT devices, software, and protocols.

But these 3 real-world case studies show how two tools—the MQTT communications protocol and industrial edge devices—can simplify your IIoT project. 


Read the Leveraging MQTT article featured in the December 2022 issue of Control Engineering magazine to see how these two tools helped engineers to:
  • Fix reporting gaps, reduce latency, and reduce travel time
  • Track safety and production data from mobile trailer-mounted units and remote pits and tanks
  • Integrate machine vision software directly into process controls
