Systems Automation – optimizes process and plant performance with integrated electronic monitoring and control systems.
Industrial Process Control – IPC
Process control is extensively used in industry and enables mass production of continuous processes such as oil refining, paper manufacturing, chemicals, power plants and many other industries. Process control enables automation, with which a small staff of operating personnel can operate a complex process from a central control room.
Computer systems that monitor and control industrial, infrastructure, or facility-based processes : industrial process include those of manufacturing, production, power generation, fabrication, and refining, and may run in continuous, batch, repetitive, or discrete modes; Infrastructure processes may be public or private, and include water treatment and distribution, wastewater collection and treatment, oil and gas pipelines, electrical power transmission and distribution, wind farms, civil defense siren systems, and large communication systems; Facility processes occur both in public facilities and private ones, including buildings, airports and ships. They monitor and control HVAC, access, and energy consumption.
PLC’s- Programmable Logic Controllers
or programmable controller is a digital computer used for automation of electromechanical processes, such as control of machinery on factory assembly lines, amusement rides, or light fixtures. PLCs are used in many industries and machines. Unlike general-purpose computers, the PLC is designed for multiple inputs and output arrangements, extended temperature ranges, immunity to electrical noise, and resistance to vibration and impact. A PLC is an example of a hard real time system since output results must be produced in response to input conditions within a limited time, otherwise unintended operation will result.
Motor Drive Controllers (VSD’s)
A variable speed drive is a piece of equipment that regulates the speed and rotational force, or torque output, of an electric motor.
Water and Wastewater Control Systems
Automatic Water and Wastewater Management control pump systems.
Pump systems can be found everywhere. Pumps are used for freshwater and wastewater in order to provide communities with those services as most of us take for granted. Pumping systems are also used in the industry such as, in chemical processes. Circulating water is used in warm countries for cooling and in colder countries for heating. These systems differ in many ways, but there are two main types of pumping systems; pressurized systems and non-pressurized systems. new and efficient PSE softstarter, completing the ABB softstarter portfolio for the water and wastewater business.
