1. What are industrial automation and process control?
Industrial automation and process control are the future of industrialization. Industrial process automation system uses a diverse variety of control systems like robotics, computers, and information technologies for handling different types of machinery and processes in an industry to replace human labor with smart and advanced technology.
And on the other hand, industrial process control automation involves controlling and monitoring systems, processes, and machinery across different industries like gas, oil, energy, wastewater, food and beverage, etc. However, by collaborating with the right service providers, your automation system can receive improved process visibility, lower power consumption, cost reductions, and more.
Schneider Electric attempts to bridge the gap between sustainability and progress. Therefore, we try to develop innovative industrial automation and process control solutions like EcoStruxure Plant & Machine, which offers IoT solutions across Connected Products, Edge Control, Apps, Analytics and Services. It ensures improved performance, energy efficiency, safety, cybersecurity, profitability, and asset reliability.
2. Why are industrial process solutions important?
Automation process control enables automation, allows manufacturers to keep their operations running within specific rules and limits, and sets precise parameters to ensure quality, prioritize safety, and maximize profitability. Therefore, it is essential to equip your process automation system with high-quality products and appliances that ensure the smooth functioning of your industrial site's installed systems.
At Schneider Electric, we try to innovate at every level to provide the best industrial process solutions to multiple industries that deal with resources like minerals, mining, metals, water, wastewater, etc. We offer best-in-class services and solutions under our exclusively designed EcoStruxure Plant & Machine for continuous process automation, process safety, hybrid process automation, discrete automation, and turbomachinery.
