In industrial production, automation and intelligent popularization of more and more high, to see what an automatic chemical plant standard is what.
1. Controller -- The brain of an automated factory
Controller is a device that controls the transfer of data from a computer to a peripheral device and vice versa. For example, disk drives, display screens, keyboards, and printers all require controllers.
Automation factory commonly used in the controller has PLC, industrial control machine and so on.
Programmable logic controller (programmable Logic CONTROLLER,PLC), which uses a class of programmable memory for its internal storage program, performs logic operation, sequential control, timing, counting and arithmetic operation, and so on user-oriented instructions, and through digital or analog input/ Output controls various types of mechanical or production processes.
2. Robot -- The executor of the automation plant
The mission of robot is that replacing manual work such as production, construction work or some other dangerous. The robots consist of actuator, drive, complex mechanical testing device and control system.
3. servomotor -- Automated plants provide power to the muscles
A servomotor is a rotary actuator or linear actuator that allows for precise control of angular or linear position, velocity and acceleration.
It consists of a suitable motor coupled to a sensor for position It also requires a relatively sophisticated controller, often a dedicated module designed specifically for use with servomotors.
4. transducer/sensor -- Automated Factory tactile
A transducer/sensor is a device that converts one form of energy to another. Usually a transducer converts a signal in one form of energy to a signal in another.
Using sensor to monitor and controll parameter of production process to make sure device operating with best condition and producing high quality products.
5. Variable-frequency Drive，VFD -- Switches for automated factories
A variable-frequency drive (VFD) is a type of adjustable-speed drive used in electro-mechanical drive systems to control AC motor speed and torque by varying motor input frequency and voltage.
6. Electromagnetic valve -- Switch of automation factory
This allows fuel to be shut off from the sprayer by electrical control. It helps avoid drips when the valve is closed. It also eases the purging of the burner (and any boiler) of fuel mist during start up, or while restarting after a misfire.
7. Industrial cameras -- The eyes of the automation factory
The term "industrial cameras" is a little bit misleading since these cameras are not only used for machine vision but also for medical, scientific and security purposes.
The following sections outline the typical features of industrial cameras.
8. instrumentation -- Control system for Automation plant
Instrumentation is the development or use of measuring instruments for observation, monitoring or control.
Instruments may be as simple as direct reading hand-held thermometers or as complex as multi-variable process analyzers.
9. Automation Software --The heart of the Automation factory
SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) is a system for remote monitoring and control that operates with coded signals over communication channels (using typically one communication channel per remote station).
The control system may be combined with a data acquisition system by adding the use of coded signals over communication channels to acquire information about the status of the remote equipment for display or for recording functions.
10. Control Panel -- The central system of the automation plant
The control cabinet also includes many kinds, such as electric control cabinet, inverter control cabinet, low-voltage control cabinet, high pressure control cabinet, water pump control cabinet, power control cabinet, explosion-proof control cabinet, elevator control cabinet, PLC control Cabinet, fire control cabinet, brick control cabinet and so on.
Automation plant involves electrical, frequency conversion, power supply, water pumps and so on control cabinets, according to different needs to choose different control cabinets to achieve different control functions.
