Factory Automation Market 2018 Global Size, Share, Growth Factors, Emerging Trends, Key Players Analysis, Development Strategy and Opportunity Assessment by 2022


Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/12/2018 -- Market Scenario:

Factory Automation can be defined as the use of computer aided control devices to operate different industrial processes by replacing human involvement. Factory Automation helps to operate multiple processes in controlled manner. It helps for mass production by reducing time and increasing production quality.

Industrial Automation consists of different levels such as sensor level, automation control level automation, supervision level and enterprise level. The sensor level can also be called as the process level that uses sensors and actuators for getting values of the process variables on periodic or continuous basis. Control devices which include PC's, PLC's and DCS are used by the automation companies at control level. PLC is majorly a machine control whereas DCS leads the process control. The automation control level operates using different embedded processors, PID algorithms to control all processes. Factory Automation includes various technologies as supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), human machine interface (HMI). Supervisory control and data acquisition is a controlled system architecture which uses computers, graphical user interfaces and network data communications for high-level processes. Human Machine Interface includes the electronics required to signal and control the state of industrial automation equipment. The major benefits of Factory Automation can be considered as replacing human involvement from risky areas of work, greater quality of production and economy improvement.
