Industrial automation is the use of control systems such as computers to control industrial machinery and processes, replacing human operators. Industrial Automation increasingly uses Ethernet for network connectivity.

A Paqworks Solution

Utility Automation is directly related to human life, and includes generation transfer, storage, and distribution of power/oil/gas and waste water treatment. SCADA software applications are applied most often in utility automation.

Distributed-installed PLCs are used in waste water treatment systems to collect information. Utility automation is always unmanned, so we need to make sure that devices provide many hours of trouble-free operation. Furthermore, since the devices are used in harsh environments, it essential to use products that have a rugged design.
