Industrial automation is a set of technologies that uses control systems and devices, such as computer software and robotics, to enable automatic operation of industrial processes and machinery without the need for human operators. Industrial automation eliminates the possibility of human error, reduces costs, saves time, and achieves higher performance.
By taking advantage of automation technologies, industrial processes automatically adjusts process variables to set or desired values using closed loop control techniques. Industrial automation increases the level of safety to personnel by substituting them with automated machines in hazardous working conditions.
Automation in the industrial workplace provides the advantages of improving productivity and quality, while reducing errors and waste, increasing safety, and adding flexibility to the manufacturing process.
Industrial Automation Tools
A wide range of tools are required for industrial automation. They include various control systems that incorporate different devices and systems impacting aspects of the manufacturing process. The key tools are explained here:
- Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)
- Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)
- Human Machine Interface (HMI)
- Artificial Neural Network (ANN)
- Distributed Control System (DCS)
BIS has been working as a partner of ICONICS for the provision and implementation of world class HMI/SCADA system. ICONICS provides HMI/SCADA automation software solutions that visualize, historize, analyze, and mobilize real-time information for any application on any device.
SCADA systems control and monitor industrial processes. The system acquires and processes real-time data through direct interaction with devices, such as sensors and PLCs, and records events into a log file. SCADA is important for data analysis, and enables effective decision-making for optimization in industrial processes.
For Any Industry
BIS has vast experience in providing state-of-the-art automation software solutions for a wide array of applications in multiple industries. Your organization’s many different data sources can be linked with the display screens, trends, alarms and data loggers.
The SCADA software solutions offered by BIS include advanced visualization and control; rapid archiving and retrieval; in-depth data analysis; data mobility; IoT/cloud integration and more. These innovative, integrated tools that visualize, historize, analyze, mobilize and cloud-enable our customers’ data and processes sets BIS apart from the competition.
