  • Approach to interconnect existing industrial automation systems with the Industrial Internet

    In this document we describe an approach to interconnect existing industrial automation systems with cooperation networks, like the internet of things, even if the industrial automation system uses a different communication protocol. To realize this, we have developed the concept of connector which provides system-dependent interfaces for different industrial automation and a universal interface for the cooperation network. Between these interfaces the messages are processed and translated by services, which act as a representation of the industrial automation system.

  • Knowledge-based planning and adaptation of industrial automation systems

    Product lifecycles are getting increasingly shorter, but the lifecycles of industrial automation systems remain stable. Since future requirements for the industrial automation systems made by the market are often unknown at the beginning of the planning process, industrial automation systems have to be adaptable at later times. In addition, the efforts of planning should be reduced continuously without losses in the quality in order to reduce costs. The aim of the approach presented in this paper is the development of an assistance system, which supports the planner during the planning and the adaptation of industrial automation systems by generating and evaluating different solution alternatives for the changed requirements and constraints. The implementation of the assistance system is based on a resource-based view of an industrial automation system and bottom-up planning which is realized with the help of a multi-agent system.

  • Requirements on engineering tools for increasing reuse in industrial automation

    Motivated by increasing demands for efficiency, reuse approaches have been increasingly gaining significance during the last years. System engineering shifted from single systems to product lines. Although the engineering paradigm changed, industrial automation systems within a product line are created with the same engineering tools as single systems. Hence, it becomes relevant to analyze which requirements engineering tools shall fulfill in order to increase reuse within a product line of industrial automation systems. The identified requirements are interesting for the following reasons: first, they are relevant for developers of engineering tools, since they aim to provide competitive products. Second, they are relevant for developers of industrial automation systems, since they reuse existing artifacts in designing new industrial automation systems with the help of engineering tools. Third, the topic is interesting for researchers and practitioners in the field of product line engineering for industrial automation systems who want to know which aspects are already supported by current engineering tools.

  • mINA-DL: A novel description language enabling dynamic reconfiguration in industrial automation

    Production facilities have to cope with fast changing market demands-leading to a need for high adaptability of the manufacturing plant. Especially the manual adaption of the automation systems causes high costs and significant downtimes. Here, an approach for an automatic adaption of the automation system is presented. The major challenges for an automatic adaptability of the automation system are (i) dynamically modifiable networks, (ii) a real-time middleware transporting variables within the network independently of the automation topology, and (iii) a semantic-based mechanism that allows one plant module to identify which signals are needed from another module. This paper describes a real-time middleware for industrial automation (mINA). It focuses especially on problem (iii), the mechanism to discover and identify required process signals. The functionality is based on a newly defined description language (mINA-DL), i.e. the middleware can use further semantic information about the signals. The middleware (ii) communicates by means of a real-time publish/subscribe concept and provides OPC UA compliance which also allows an easy integration with the manufacturing execution system (MES). Furthermore, a first prototypical implementation of the middleware is described and assessed using a test environment.

  • Remote data acquisition module using optic interface for industrial automation and control

    Remote data acquisition units are handy devices which can go right near the process where the data acquisition is needed. The problem with remote data acquisition devices has always been the slow data transfer speed which is in the order of 10's of kilosample/s. In this paper we propose a design of a remote data acquisition module with optical interface which has data transfer speed around 100's of megasamples/sec. The simplicity, robustness and intrinsic isolation of the design together with the speed makes it very desirable for industrial applications.

  • INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION & CONTROL TROUGH PLC AND LABVIEW

    Industrial automation (IA) greatly reduces the need for human sensory, human workforce and cost. With the rapid growth in the sensors, control and automation technologies many control systems such as Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) are performing a significant role in the automation of industries by using software and hardware tools. This paper focuses on automation of an industrial system through a number of tools such as PLC, Lab VIEW, and internet. In the proposed system, the PLC control method is implemented by using PLC Fatek. The planned solution for industrial automation is achieved by implementing a real- time controlling and monitoring system which is interfaced with a low-cost PLC (FATEK) and perfect acquisition software LABVIEW for automation and cost optimization for a typical industrial manufacturing system. The main objective of this study is mixing limestone powder and hot water through an automated approach in order to minimize the risk of workers' health and the occurrence of accidents. The designed system is capable to maintain the water level and temperature of four types of different tanks by controlling automated on-off of the attached heating and mixing equipment. The system offers a more convenient and efficient approach to the transition of manufacturing industries from manual to automated. The automation efficiency can be enhanced furthermore by taking help form android mobile application also LabVIEW dashboard application.

  • Optimization of power in Wireless Industrial Automation Networks

    Wireless Industrial Automation Networks may comprise large number of sensors and actuators which are densely deployed in various parts of an industry to monitor and control physical parameters like pressure, temperature, humidity, flow, level, density etc.by utilizing IEEE 802.15.4 standard. Typically, a sensor node consists of sensing subsystem for data acquisition, processing subsystem for data processing and storage and wireless communication subsystem for data transmission. Power source supplies the energy needed for the device to do the programmed task. The power source consists of a battery with a limited energy budget. Also, it might be inconvenient to recharge the battery, because sensors and actuators may be installed in a hostile environment. On the other hand, the sensor network should have a lifetime long enough to fulfill the application requirements. In many cases a lifetime of a sensor node is in the order of months or years as required. In some cases it is possible to get energy from the external environment by using solar cells as power source. But the external power supply source is often unreliable so that an energy buffer is needed. Hence power is a critical resource and must be used very cautiously. Therefore, the power optimization is an important issue in the design of wireless sensor based systems. This paper depicts some of the standard practices to be enforced in the components of the sensor node and analyzed the routing level approaches to achieve the power optimization in Wireless Industrial Automation Networks.

  • The current status and challenges of standardization for electronic catalog for industrial automation

    Recently, the approach on the products information management system and electronic commerce has been activated by using electronic catalog. The aim of these activities is to optimize data exchange between companies, business systems, engineering tools, data systems within companies. The exchange of product data between various systems can only run smoothly when both the information to be exchanged and use of this information has been clearly defined. This paper describes the technical data exchange of process measuring equipment based on the List of Properties (LOPs), and the challenges of electronic catalog in the future.
