Solenoid Valve

A solenoid valve is an electromechanical device used for controlling liquid or gas flow. The solenoid valve is controlled by electrical current, which is run through a coil. When the coil is energized, a magnetic field is created, causing a… Continue reading →

HART (“Highway Addressable Remote Transducer”)

HART is one of several different communications protocols used in plant automation. Each has its strengths, but HART is the best overall solution for obtaining value-added device and diagnostic information in digital form while retaining compatibility with legacy 4-20 mA… Continue reading →
