In today's rapidly evolving world, technological advancements have permeated nearly every aspect of our lives, including the manufacturing industry. Industrial automation, with its sophisticated systems and cutting-edge technologies, has emerged as a game-changer, revolutionizing the way products are manufactured. In this blog post, we will delve into the concept of industrial automation, its key components, and how it is reshaping the future of manufacturing.
The components involved in circuit protection vary across industries, especially when considering how much circuit magnitude differs among devices. Circuit protection devices prevent power loss by pinpointing the location of the issue and isolating it. In this blog, we will discuss some of the most common types of circuit protection devices on the market and why you should have them installed.
Electricity is used in a wide range of sectors, including residential, commercial, and industrial applications. Today, a majority of manufacturing plants depend on electric power as a utility for fabrication and production purposes. As a result of the complexity and interconnectivity of the systems used in such settings, even a few seconds of time offline can lead to monetary and material loss.
The term pneumatic refers to systems containing or operating with pressurized gasses, often air. Many aircraft systems operate on pneumatic systems, such as those that control the ailerons, the rudders, and the elevators. Whether the application relies on pneumatic cylinders, pneumatic solenoid valves, or other devices, all pneumatic systems make use of an exhaust port for releasing pneumatic air after use. Depending on the flow and the pressure of the released air, pneumatic exhaust can generate harmful noise that interferes with the system. To prevent disruption to workers, contaminants, and more, one should employ a pneumatic silencer, which is a small device that connects to the exhaust port of a pneumatic system for the main purpose of noise reduction. With various models available for procurement, pneumatic silencers may perform additional functions and attach to various housings. As such, this blog will offer a brief overview of these useful devices and the benefits of including them in pneumatic systems.
Vibration sensors are fairly straightforward in their use, serving as sensors that can detect vibration within a system. Vibration monitoring is important for a number of applications, as the force of vibration may lead to undesirable noise, losses in performance, lower service lives, and more. As a result, it can be very beneficial to have a quality vibration sensor if your system or application calls for such management for the means of health and efficiency. In this blog, we will discuss some of the main industrial applications that vibration sensors serve, allowing you to see how such technology benefits a wide variety of needs.
From aircraft control systems to video game consoles and mobile phones, embedded systems have become inseparable from modern technology. In definition, embedded systems are a combination of computer software and hardware which are either fixed to work in a certain way or programmable. As embedded systems are generally located at the heart of machinery, engineers have needed to create a variety of thermal management systems along with them. This is to regulate the amount of heat they create and keep internal machinery safe from damage. For example, if a laptop has been running for a while, you may notice it start to radiate heat and in some cases, hear the whirring of an internal fan cooling it down. This and other thermal management instruments are an expected part of embedded systems. In this blog, we will take a look at the different forms of thermal management systems and their applications.
Users today have an incredibly diverse range of options when it comes to computing devices. With hardware options ranging from custom-built, high-performance towers down to computing boards that can fit in a pocket, there is no limit to technology customization. While most companies continue on advancing PC tower and laptop technology, a select few have created and been successful in selling single-board computers (SBCs). Single-board computers are low-cost, basic computing modules that are popular in education, computer control, and systems development. Today, only two products account for the vast majority of SBC sales, Raspberry Pi and Arduino parts, and while these SBCs share many design features, they also have differentiating characteristics that set them apart. In this blog, we will further discuss these two devices and highlight some of their key differences.
Pneumatic systems are used in a variety of industries, serving several mechanical purposes. They are similar to hydraulic systems, except instead of using hydraulic fluid, they use compressed air. Compressed air is simply atmospheric air which has a compressed volume, and as a result, has increased pressure. This compressed air is used as a mechanical force to move around machine equipment and other tools in various assemblies and applications. Pneumatic systems are extremely useful in trucks, factory automation systems, medical applications, and other industries. Since pneumatic systems can effectively perform several tasks such as clamping, gripping, positioning, stacking, pressing, tensioning, and closed-loop control, learning more about their functioning and applications becomes paramount.
Process automation and advanced system design is highly beneficial for a variety of applications, and they rely on HMIs, PLCs, and SCADA. While each device or system has its own unique role in overall process automation, all work together to perform various overlapping functions. To help you better understand such complex apparatuses and how they work together, we will provide a brief overview of each.
Circuit breakers are electrical safety devices that are designed to protect an electrical circuit from damages caused by an overcurrent or short circuit. Its main function is to interrupt the flow of current to protect equipment and prevent the likelihood of a fire ensuing. As there are many types of circuit breakers, this blog will focus its attention on industrial miniature circuit breakers (MCBs).
Electric motors are an important element of countless industrial applications, serving to transform electrical energy into mechanical energy that drives various systems. With their standard operations, electric motors often account for a large percentage of an operation’s energy costs. Thus, any effort to increase efficiency and conserve power will net higher savings. To make the conservation of power as efficient and easy as possible, most operations utilize industrial motor controls. With such devices, motors can be operated while ensuring that power is only used when necessary to carry out a task.
