“We are pleased to receive the ATEX and IECEx certifications for our XLTX and MLTX2 transmitters, as these wireless controls are now certified to control equipment used worldwide in oil and gas applications, an important market initiative for us,” said Ben Stoller, director of radio controls. “Other potentially hazardous locations where these wireless controls may be applied include petrochemical operations, above ground mining, and chemical plants.”

ATEX compliance, required by the European Union, certifies that Magnetek wireless controls are safe to use in potentially explosive areas with flammable gases or vapors. IECEx equipment certification signifies that Magnetek’s wireless controls conform to international safety standards for environments where a potential exists for explosions.

“End user acceptance of the stringent ATEX and IECEx standards is typical in North America and worldwide,” said Stoller. “So these certifications should have a positive impact on our radio control business in North America as well as globally.”

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
