Why MQTT Is an Ideal Connectivity Protocol for the Industrial Internet of Things
MQTT appears to be a protocol with a good track record, good adoption, and unique suitability for industrial control systems and IIoT applications.
Watch: What is an MQTT Broker?
Summary Take a deeper look at MQTT to see what the central server, called the "broker", is capable of. The communication model of MQTT offers several benefits over the traditional poll and response model. In this tutorial, we'll take a look at an MQTT broker and what advantages it can provide for IoT and IIoT applications In this video you'll learn: How the MQTT model works What an MQTT broker is and where it can run Useful features and functionality that the broker…
Video: How to Get Started with MQTT
In this tutorial you will learn how to get started using MQTT with Node-RED. The IoT is all about interconnecting devices. MQTT is a lightweight publish-subscribe based protocol that relays data through a central broker. This video covers: How the MQTT model works What is a MQTT broker The advantages and disadvantages of MQTT How to use MQTT to turn on a digital output MQTT Node-RED Node

Wire a Level Sensor: Automation 101 Video
Automation 101: Wire a Level Sensor Monitoring tank and liquid levels is a fundamental task in automation. This video explains how a level sensor using a 4-20 mA signal can give you the data you need. It also explains how you can get additional data from a sensor that communicates using the HART® (highway addressable remote transducer) protocol, even though the sensor has only two wires.
Why automation isn't process control
What's the difference and why should we care? What distinguishes process control? Process Control Specialist John Rezabek answers these questions and more.
