The article discusses the criteria in selecting proper sensor used for process monitoring and control including accuracy, repeatability and cost. It is stated that one must measure the accuracy of the sensor. Repeatability is essential to a plant's success since it helps to assure greater quality control and reduced cost due of fewer errors. Cost is the leading criteria for instrumentation purchases. It is suggested that one must not buy the most expensive sensor, but to understand its value.
