Summary note
Whether the instrumentation control hardware consists of local mechanical, pneumatic, electronic, microprocessor, fieldbus or wireless controls, microprocessor-based controllers, programmable logic controllers, personal computer-based controls, distributed control systems, or fieldbus controls, a keen awareness of advanced regulatory control is required by engineers, technicians, educators, managers, salespersons, and marketing personnel such that an appropriate control strategy can be applied to industrial processes.
