Securing industrial control systems against threat of cyber infection

We are all aware of the need to protect desktop computers from viruses and other malware, but what about industrial systems? Alistair Rae explains that these are generally less well protected, yet a malicious attack or an infection with malware can have devastating results. Fortunately there are ways to reduce the risks

Torque sensor helps to reduce engine friction

Measures radio frequency waves generated by surface acoustic wave devices fixed to a rotating shaft and converts them to a torque measurement
