What is Industrial Automation?
In simple words it can be termed as whatever used to replace humans can be considered as Automation. Where Industrial Automation can be explained as use of Computers, Control Systems & Information Technologies to replace the Human Resource in an Industry for handling different processes & machineries. In the current scenario of the World; we all know that all corporate companies are trying hard to replace manpower with automated systems as there are various advantages to doing the same. In early times the purpose of Automation was to Increase Productivity alone; But now the whole concept has moved forward to increasing quality & to create flexibility in the processes.
Pros of Industrial Automation
There are various advantages that Industrial Automation have over traditional Processes, as listed below:
Even though Industries recruit thousands of labourers to do the physical jobs; the industry will be on halt during breaks, maintenance activities, holidays etc. Industrial Automation equips the Industry to work 24 x 365. Thus creating a huge boost in the productivity of the Industry.
Biggest issue that Industries face is the Human error factor; humans are bound to make mistakes. Industrial Automation helps to make sure that such errors are not popping up anywhere. Error rate of an Industrial Automated process can be reduced to 0.0001% where as in the case of humans it will be around 1-1.5%.
Assigning a new task to an operator or labour can be a hideous task; as it requires a good amount of training as well as the output depends on the capability of the trainee. Automation systems can be programmed to perform any tasks & no training or support is required on the same.
Industrial Automation processes can make the work environment safer for employees as all the hazardous & risky operations can be handled by the systems.
Cons of Industrial Automation
There is only one disadvantage of the Industrial Automation Systems as the Initial Cost involved in the same is pretty high. But as the Industries are trying to move into the next phase even with monitor supports; it paves the path for the growth of Industrial Automation.
Note: The future of Industrial Automation is extremely bright & it’s visible across the globe. The future will be bright for people who are actually able to control these Automation systems.
Role in Industries:
The automation engineers have roles in various industries such as interacting with various stakeholders to get a detailed insight into solution requirements. They have to Design, simulate, program and test the different machines or an automated process solution or a manufacturing plant, etc.
They have to work like entire solution building to the automation system and procurement of different equipment like Sensors, PLC, HMI, Valves etc., design includes SCADA, PLC, HMI, Control panel communication Mechanism Etc.
They have to handle the issues/Queries arising at the client site and providing necessary solutions /support
Required to Identify issues in existing processes of clients (automated/Non automated) and recommend innovative solutions to increase efficiency.
They are responsible for project implementation (Erection, commissioning, testing & troubleshooting) at the client’s site.
Automation engineers are Backbone for all the machinery’s ,Process industries as well as all manufacturing industries, without the automation the machines or process cannot run (due to safety ,risk in process etc.) therefore, demands for skilled domain specialist is always high in all over the world
The different job titles for Automation engineers listed below, on successful completion of course they can apply as PLC programmer, Project engineer, Snr project Engineer, project manager, SCADA Engineer, Plant operator, etc.
Q1: What are all programming languages used for Programming?
Answer: We are doing all the five IEC1131, such as Instruction List, Structured Text, Ladder Diagram, Function Block and Sequential Function Chart.
Q2: IS PID control included in the course
Answer: Yes it’s included in PLC and FI lab
Q3: Does the Programming of all PLC is similar
Answer: Logic is similar but software and instructions application is different from each
Q4: What are all included in Industrial Automation?
Answer: For Industrial automation will give training from Field instruments, PLC, HMI, SCADA, DCS, Control Panel, VFD etc. Selection to Commissioning level
Q5: IS PLC and DCS same?
Answer: As a Controller both are same, but there is a major difference in both. Programmable logic controller is a Controller used for automating processes, especially in machine automation, DCS contains multiple controllers/Distributed Systems that are distributed throughout a system, also used for automating processes. Mainly used in Process Controls
Q6. Which all are the leading Automation providers?
Answer: Rockwell Automation Allen Bradley, Siemens, Schneider Modicon, Delta, Mitsubishi, Keyence, Omron, ABB and GE Fanuc. Etc.
Q7: What are Field Instruments?
It’s the study of different types of sensors, Transmitters, Valves etc. used in field for measuring and controlling E.g.: Temperature, Pressure, Flow, Level, Conductivity, Density, Ph. type sensors.
Q8: Is Panel Wiring Included in the Course
Answer: Yes it’s included, as an automation engineer you have to do panel wiring also.
Q9: Is there any Industrial communication included
Answers:-Yes Especially, PLC to PC, PLC to HMI, PLC to SCADA, PLC to VFD etc. included as the Industrial Networking
Q10: Is it Practical or theoretical?
Answer: its 80% Practical and 20% theory
