Industrial Automation

Industrial automation is the use of control systems, such as computers or robots, and information technologies. They are used for handling different processes and machineries in an industry to replace a human being. Industrial automation is the second step beyond mechanization in the scope of industrialization.

Drives Invertors
Drives inverters are a type of adjustable-speed drive that are used in electro-mechanical drive system to control AC motor speed and torque by varying motor input frequency and voltage. They are used in applications ranging from small appliances to the largest mine mill drives and compressors.

PLC's
A PLC (programmable logic controller) is a digital computer that is used for automation of typically industrial electromechanical processes, such as control of machinery on factory assembly lines, amusement rides, or light fixtures. They are used in many machines in many different industries.

HMI's and Industrial PC's
The HMI is a controller-operating panel. The panel comprises a numeric keypad and a LCD screen that displays text. The keypad is used to input data into the application, such as Timer values. An industrial PC is a customizable, high-performance embedded computer. It also includes industrial motherboards, rackmount computers, touchscreen displays and panel PCs that are engineered for the most demanding environments.

Inverters & VFD's
An inverter is a device that converts either of the two binary digits or signals into the other. Inverters are electronic devices that change direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC). A VFD is a type of motor controller that drives an electric motor by varying the frequency and voltage supplied to the electric motor.

Motion
A sub-field of automation, in which the position or velocity of machines are controlled by using some type of device that could be a hydraulic pump, linear actuator, or electric motor which is generally a servo. Motion controllers control the motion of some object.

Cables, Connectors & Software
Cables are an insulated wire or wires having a protective casing and used for transmitting electricity or telecommunications signals. Connectors are devices that are used to keep two parts of an electric circuit in contact. Software is the programs or other operating information that is used by a computer.
