Industrial automation or instrumentation is a discipline that includes knowledge and expertise from various branches of engineering including electrical, electronics, chemical, mechanical, communications and recently computer and software engineering. Oakleigh Automation provides instrumentation and process control services including calibrations, installation, maintenance, service and design.
Oakleigh Automation is owned and operated by Brian Carr. He began his Instrumentation apprenticeship in 1994, in a plant that operated with a wide variety of instrumentation, control methodologies and styles.
SMART transmitters began to replace early electronic transmitters and pneumatic transmitters. Antiquated electronic devices and stand-alone controllers were now able to be integrated into a whole of plant control system, enabling capabilities previously unobtainable.
Oakleigh Automation is able to provide Instrumentation services throughout Australia and have also been involved in numerous projects overseas.
