Industrial Automation for smooth operations

by horner auto on May 28, 2010

The use of complex machinery and equally difficult processes has called for efficient Control systems that can monitor multiple tasks employed in various industries in order to maintain their productivity level and ensure smooth flow of operations. The technological advancements has made it possible and given the solution in terms of Automation. Automation combines the use of Control systems and information technology applications to provide Automation solutions to different industrial needs. Industrial Automation has become a key to save costs as it allows simultaneous functioning of several tasks reducing dependency on workers and is highly beneficial in manufacturing processes. Process Automation is another type which factory & plant owners utilize to operate efficiently. It not only allows monitoring several production factors but is also capable of suggesting suitable strategy using measurements stored in computer programs. Process Automation ensures less wastage and forecasts maintenance requirement which accounts for their high efficiency. Automation Control has benefited organizations and humans to a great extent in the way it has made complicated tasks easy to carry out. Automation systems can be used to fulfill varied requirements in manufacturing process and deliver the best results in terms of monitoring. Automation employs different types of Tools like. Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) ”“ These are specialized computers which are highly useful in Factory automation and can easily control machines or assembly lines along with performing a number of functions like basic relay control, motion control, process control, and complex networking. Distributed Control Systems (DCSs) ”“ They are control systems in which Controller elements are distributed throughout the system to monitor different equipments in which communication is maintained by a control network. DCSs are primarily used to control manufacturing process in pharmaceutical industry, oil refining, petrochemicals, cement production, etc. Human-Machine Interface (HMI) ”“ HMI is an interface that facilitates the communication between humans and the machines with the help of Input and Output components. Input devices are used by humans to give the instructions to perform whereas outputs tell about the execution of commands or related updates to humans. HMIs are generally used to interact with PLCs. SCADA System- An industrial Control system, SCADA stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition and involves a number of sub- components including HMI, PLCs, Remote Terminal Units and a supervisory system. It is used Data Collection, control and management. A SCADA system allows easy and fast retrieval of data as and when required. These are only some of the Automation Tools which are utilized by industries for their benefits. However, Automation has quite a lot of things to offer to aid the varied and intricate industrial tasks.
