Understanding All About Automation Systems And Their Types
The automation system is one of the projects handled and delivered by Elite Robotics. It is particularly interesting because they are designed and delivered specifically to the production needs of the customer. They are also tailored to customer application and process. The Automation systems are unique systems designed to perform a string of tasks to reduce the labour cost of such tasks. Aside from the labour-cost reducing benefits, they also help increase the speed of production while simultaneously helping these systems promote the quality of the products, smoothen the process and make it efficient.
Types of Automation System
What the automation system does is to restore the relay system that is hard-wired. This occurs simply by robotising the entire process majorly using different tools (both hardware and software), all with little or no human assistance. There are some major types of automation systems, and they can be utilised in various applications. However, these systems are quite distinct from one another, as it depends on the area of its application as well as the nature of its control. Before we delve into the types and examples of automation, let's talk about industrial automation.
This is the means and act of ensuring that the processes of industrial production are less rigid and wired in such a way as to improve efficiency. Once automation is incorporated into the production processes, it results in extremely brilliant solutions for its manufacturing. All these occur to produce a far more improved and qualitative product with less waste. Industrial automation mostly entails the use of diverse devices for its control. They include; sensors, communication buses, actuators, communication modules, Human-machine interface etc. The industrial automation is widely known and used in machines and electronics such as cars; it is also apparent in the telecommunications and medical industry. Some of the automation systems can double as a rigid, flexible or integrated machine. The types of automation system include;
This is a mathematically based model that is in line with biological neurons. Their networks are modelled on adaptation; that is, they are largely flexible and can be altered due to communication within and outside the network. This particular network can be used for pattern identification and relationship classification, especially in a large data pool. Examples of these systems include spam filter in electronic mail, automobile control system, speech and text recognition via patterns etc.
This is the system in which there are distinct controls in the system. This is because the location of the controls is not placed in the centre of the system. However, they are more likely to span out, depending on the region being monitored by the system. The distributed control systems are majorly responsible for the control of traffic lights; they are used in the application of oil refining and generating power.
It is also known as human-machine interface, and it is largely dependent on interaction from humans to function as a system properly. For this system, the user provides enough data to be imputed onto the system for processing; the system will, in turn, produce an output that is in line with the user's input. An example of this is the automated teller machine. Other types of automated systems include; supervisory control and data acquisition and programmable logic controllers.
