Smart Sensors Selection

This Smart Sensor Selection guide contains a comprehensive set of criteria to help you select the best Smart Sensor solution available in the market for your specific needs.

Smart Sensors Selection Overview

Currently the market is dominated by field instrumentation and the process industries.  While there is no single standard that could be applied to support the claim that a sensor is “smart,” smart sensors are typically characterized by on-board intelligence and the ability to communicate via a digital network.  With the emergence of both Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial IoT, new sensors and associated applications are emerging every day.  Increasingly, these sensors are “smart”, a requirement for IoT sensors as well as for many industrial applications.   Smart sensors are also gaining momentum in the discrete industries.

Selecting the Correct Smart Sensors for Optimal Business ValueThe complex nature of process operations coupled with the large investments in assets by operating companies make the need for timely and accurate sensor information and automated control greater than ever.  Selecting the correct smart sensor can be crucial to the operation of your plant.  Failure to measure a full range of operating conditions correctly can influence product quality, plant efficiencies, and safe operation.
