Backup and Restore: A Guide for Creating Industrial Backup Procedures

Backup and Restore: A Guide for Creating Industrial Backup Procedures

It's 10pm and you just got a call from the plant that a critical PLC has failed and can't be revived. 

A replacement PLC is on hand so all the technician needs now is the backup file to get everything back up and running. You know where that is, right? It's up to date and has all the latest set point values included, doesn't it? There aren't any supporting files that you need and don't have, are there?

Knowing where the backup files are located is just half the battle. Ideally you should have a comprehensive Backup and Restore Procedure available to guide you, or any other qualified personnel, through the steps needed to recover from this type of situation in a timely fashion.

This Guide walks through the who, what, when, where and how questions that must be addressed in industrial Backup and Restore Procedures.

Dangers of Elevated Nitrates and How to Reduce Them

Dangers of Elevated Nitrates and How to Reduce Them

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set the maximum contaminant level of nitrates in drinking water at 10 mg/L. In some areas – especially near farms – contaminant levels may be higher than the EPA regulation, prompting the local water treatment plant to take action and send a notice to all residents using their water.

In this white paper, you will learn: 

  • What causes nitrates
  • Some of the public health risks associated with elevated levels
  • How to protect yourself
  • Ways to reduce nitrate concentration in existing wells
  • Ways to treat nitrates in drinking water
  • Blue-baby syndrome
  • Best practices for boil order notices & public health warnings
