The article discusses the need for system designers to consider the slew rate of an operational amplifier not just its bandwidth when designing signal-conditioning circuitry for industrial applications. It says that operational amplifiers are important part of signal-conditioning circuitry that are often found in automation and industrial control system. It mentions that slew rate is the amplifier's maximum rate of change for its output voltage.
