Automation Components

With the advancement of technology and demands, machine builders are constantly seeking for new automation solutions to improve their manufacturing outputs/processes. In response to these, they must often incorporate commercial off-the-shelf components and other technologies to deliver more performance at lower costs in smaller form factors. 

Generally, a machine’s automation solution comprises power and control components. Depending on the machine, smaller machines might be housed in one panel; whereas larger machines might require multiple panels. However, the main system and components of machine automation solutions are : 

  • power distribution
  • motor control and drives
  • safety system
  • programmable logic controllers
  • I/O (input-output) units 
  • communication systems
  • human-machine interface (HMI)
