Industrial Control System


Industrial control system includes the various types of controls and related instrumentation used in the industrial environment. It includes the devices, systems, networks and controls used to operate or automate industrial processes and are specifically tailored to the customized needs of a certain industry process. There are several types of industrial control system, the most common of which are Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems and Distributed Control Systems. All systems receive data from remote sensors, compare these with desired set points and derive command functions which are used to control a process through control devices.


Controllers – PLCs

Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) are an integral part of factory automation and industrial process control. All of the PLC's components and functions are centered on the controller, which is programmed for a specific task. They perform many functions, providing a variety of analog and digital input and output interfaces, signal processing, data conversion and various communication protocols.


The basic PLC module must be sufficiently flexible and configurable to meet the diverse needs of different factories and applications. Inputs (either analog or digital) are received from machines, sensors, or process events in the form of voltage or current. The PLC must accurately interpret and convert the stimulus for the CPU which, in turn, defines a set of instructions to the output systems that control actuators on the factory floor or in another industrial environment. PLCs are expected to work flawlessly for years in industrial environments that are hazardous to the very microelectronic components that give modern PLCs their excellent flexibility and precision. PLCs have from four to hundreds of input/output (I/O) channels in a wide variety of form factors, so size and power can be as important as system accuracy and reliability.


Panel Instruments/HMI

Human Machine Interface (HMI), also referred to as User Interface, Operator Panel or Terminal, provides a means of controlling, monitoring, managing and / or visualizing device processes. An example is an operator panel which allows an industrial machine operator to interact with a machine in a graphical, visual way. With controls and read-outs graphically displayed on the screen, the operator can use either external buttons or the touch screen to control the machinery. Ranging from simple segmented displays to high-resolution LCD panels, HMIs can be located on the machine, in battery-operated, portable handheld devices and also in centralized control rooms.


Industrial HMI systems require dynamically changing graphics which, in turn, require a high performance solution that can achieve the 60 frame-per-second refresh rate that is required at the right resolution. They also have to support multiple connectivity and communications protocols to communicate between the operator and various machines and control systems.
