What Is Industrial Automation?
Industrial automation refers to the process of automating industrial applications, usually through sensor technology. Most industrial automation processes involve using computer-based sensors to identify, analyze and measure physical presences or environmental conditions and produce specific outputs in response to what they detect — a process that occurs automatically. Industrial automation also requires IC chip solutions to perform most of its required functions.
Examples of industrial automation applications include:
- Increased manufacturing consistency and product quality control
- The use of lighting automation for energy efficiency
- Automatic temperature control applications
