Industrial automation systems integration

Industrial automation systems integration is an integral process in any production that allows you to gain competitive advantages and successfully solve the problems facing the company.

Industrial automation of production processes increases labor efficiency and makes it possible to reduce costs and improve the quality of products. In addition, it increases the service life of equipment, saves materials and raw materials, and increases the level of production safety in general.

Benefits of automation systems integration

  • introduction of new technologies;
  • speeding up production processes and improving the accuracy of execution;
  • reduction of emergency situations that can be created in production;
  • obtaining a competitive advantage in the market in a certain direction, etc.

An automated process is more stable than a manual process. From this it follows that the quality of execution of all stages of the process is significantly increased. The benefits of automation systems also include: the ability to reduce the time to complete tasks, reduce the cost of many steps in business processes, improve business productivity levels, and solve the problem of accuracy of the system of operations performed.

The introduction of an automation system for technological processes involves a large number of works. The cycle of modernization activities should include familiarization with the enterprise and the facility, development of the project (including software). Then the manufacture, supply and installation of specialized equipment. It should be foreseen the need to train personnel for high-quality and efficient maintenance of systems.

What is industrial control system integration

A modern industrial enterprise cannot be imagined without computer resource management systems, just as it is impossible to imagine it without process control systems. But how to “make friends” of these classes of systems, what questions may arise before integrators? Automation systems allow you to control the technological process from the operator’s automated workplace. The software that is installed on a computer for this purpose is a SCADA system. The efficiency of the entire technological process directly depends on the quality of programming the logic of the controller (PLC) and the operator interface (SCADA). System integration includes the use of electrical control panels. These panels consist of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs)

Types of automation systems integration

  • SCADA integration. The SCADA system is a reliable multi-user distributed software solution that provides control of technological processes, production, equipment of engineering structures.SCADA is software for centralized control over the operation of automated systems. SCADA also conducts an automatic process of receiving, storing, processing and analyzing data on the states of automation systems and controlled devices during their operation.
  • PLC. Programmable Logic Controller are designed to create automatic control systems for the production process. Modern PLCs, in addition to simple logic operations, are capable of performing digital signal processing, drive control, regulation, operator control functions, to control actuators – electric motors, valves, light bulbs, etc., which are an integral part of automation systems in all industries. On the basis of controllers, reliable and efficient control systems of relatively low cost can be created.
  • VFD. Variable Frequency Drive  is a system for controlling the rotor speed of an asynchronous (synchronous) electric motor. It consists of the actual electric motor and frequency converter. The benefits of VFDs include:- high frequency control accuracy

    – energy savings in case of variable load

    – increased equipment resource

    – smooth start of the engine, which significantly reduces its wear

Industrial automation systems integration with Automatic Group USA

Building custom automation solutions for manufacturing is one of the main activities of our company. Industrial automation systems integration involves a large number of works. The cycle of modernization activities should include familiarization with the enterprise and the facility, development of the project (including software). Then the manufacture, supply and installation of specialized equipment. It should be foreseen the need to train personnel for high-quality and efficient maintenance of systems. There are many reasons why integration is important:
  • limiting the influence of the human factor on the technological process;
  • increasing the reliability of production;
  • increasing the speed and quality of production;
  • prevention and prevention of emergency situations at work;
  • increasing the level of production control.
