Industrial automation is the use of control systems of traditional factories, such as Automated computers or robots, and information technologies for handling different processes and machineries in an industry to replace a human being. It is the second step beyond mechanization of traditional factories in the scope of industrialization.
Advantages of Industrial Automation
Lower operating cost:
Industrial automation eliminates healthcare costs and paid leave and holidays associated with a human operator. The maintenance cost associated with machinery used for industrial automation is less because it does not often fail. If it fails, only computer and maintenance engineers are required to repair it.
Industrial automation can make the production line safe for the employees by deploying robots to handle hazardous conditions.
Industrial automation fulfills the aim of the company by allowing the company to run a manufacturing plant for 24 hours in a day 7 days in a week and 365 days a year. This leads to a significant improvement in the productivity of the company.
Automation alleviates the error associated with a human being. Further, unlike human beings, robots do not involve any fatigue, which results in products with uniform quality manufactured at different times.
Adding a new task in the assembly line requires training with a human operator, however, robots can be programmed to do any task. This makes the manufacturing process more flexible.
High Information Accuracy
Adding automated data collection, can allow you to collect key production information, improve data accuracy, and reduce your data collection costs. This provides you with the facts to make the right decisions when it comes to reducing waste and improving your processes.
The most common use of RFID in access control is in door entry systems for personnel. RFID-enabled tags are employed on a very basic level as the identification badges of the workers for any company or industry that uses access control systems.
Door readers also use this same technology. Each RFID reader is equipped with a small antenna, which sends its own radio waves with the purpose of detecting any RFID tag or card within its range. This range can vary for each reader depending upon the frequency of the radio waves it emits, anywhere from about 10 centimeters to around one meter. The RFID reader decodes the unique stored information being emitted from the corresponding RFID badge and sends the signal to its host software, which either grants or denies access to the user.
Human Machine Interface
Human machine interface (HMI) – also known as User Interface (UI), Operator Interface Terminal (OIT) or Man Machine Interface (MMI) – encompasses hardware and software solutions for information exchange and communication between systems/machines and a human operator. HMIs enable control, management and/or visualization of device processes and can range from simple inputs on a touch display to control panels for highly complex industrial automation system. HMIs can be found in multiple locations such as portable handheld devices, on machines, centralized control rooms, as well as factory floor machine and process control. Applications include industrial and building automation, digital signage, vending machine, medical, automotive, and appliances.

Lighting networks typically require tens or hundreds of nodes in a single network and cover large areas, requiring mesh networking such as Bluetooth mesh or 15.4 based technologies like Zigbee, in most cases. Mesh networking has the benefit of providing a single network with many devices devices and multi-hop connectivity to cover large areas.
Mesh networks are also more resilient than point-to-point connectivity, as messages can travel through multiple routes from the source to the destination, and a single node being dropped or removed from the network usually does not lead to the whole network breaking down.
IoT devices must also be protected from tampering, malware injection or advanced exploits and Differential Power Analysis (DPA). Our latest designs integrate both the wireless protocol security and protection against many physical attacks such as DPA.
Electronic self label(ESL) management systems require bi-directional responsive systems, long battery life, indoor mapping and navigation systems. An ESL consist of three main parts:
- E-paper display
- Wireless MCU for remote, flexible and scalable pricing management
