David Peterson Director of Engineering Content David Peterson is the Director of Engineering Content for Control Automation. He is a Mechanical Engineer who converted to the field of Control Systems Engineering and Making. He taught industrial controls and digital/analog circuit design at Centralia College in Southwest WA for 8 years before creating his own company with his brother Jon, also a controls engineer. Together as Peterson Brothers Automation, they spent several years investigating new ways to teach industry technicians and HS college instructors about new technology that can improve efficiency, reduce costs, and create positive workplace cultures. David has also taught various control system and robotics courses at Clark College and Portland Community College. David lives with his wife and four children in southwest WA. His hobbies include climbing mountains, hiking, and 3D printing accessories for his nearly endless collection of Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and LED projects.

Engineering Tutorial: Getting Started with a Benchtop IIoT Remote Data Project

In partnership with Control Automation

Before embarking on a large-scale IIoT pilot project, it’s important to understand some of the devices, tools, and techniques that can allow you to securely access and understand process data.

Join the Control Automation engineering team to see a small-scale project that you can build using a simple PLC and motor system in a workshop or at home, giving you the ability to remotely access and control your system. This project will allow you to explore software and hardware without exposing a real-world automation system to some of the cost and security risks that can be encountered during the learning phase.
