Out with the old sensors (puh-lease!) and in with the new

Sensors are making their way deeper into process manufacturing where they monitor PH levels in vinegar, ensure towering bins of sugar aren’t overfilled and measure humidity in bakeries. Sensors are even helping power better mousetraps. But some plant managers are skeptical about sensors because the sensors installed in the 1990s or early 2000s don’t have
