The steady advancement in sensory and control technology has allowed engineers to accumulate and display more information than necessary on human-machine-interfaces. For years, designers have used indicator lamps to alert operators and color-coded LEDs to indicate the status of vital assets. When it comes to day-to-day operations, operators seldom use all the information displayed on the HMI and mostly use 1–2 status screens to monitor major parameters.

3y ago
Programmable Logic Controllers aren’t only used to provide information on signal levels. They can also capture and analyze data, depending on the use of the controller. The most basic use of PLCs, signal capturing, allows users to capture and record a set of values for analysis and testing. Values captured by PLCs can be entered and displayed on charts to see the frequency and variations in the actual value set compared to the ideal value set. Some value sets will need a PID control scheme to correct them. This is shown via spikes in the chart representing errors such as overshoo ..read more
