  • 2. Content  Need for automation  Simple automation system  Designing automation systems  Implementation of automation system
  • 3. Need for automation Why do we automate 1. Productivity improvement 2. Accuracy 3. Cost saving 4. Safety of the employees
  • 4. Automated System Sensors and Switches Motors and Actuators Controller Signal Conditioning Signal Conditioning
  • 5. Example A1 Is C1 C2 Fig:Two views of the system Is-Inductive sensor A1-Pneumatic Actuator C1-Collector C2-Collector Gear Box motor-m item Os-Optical sensor A0 A0
  • 6. 1. When Os detects an item, it should be pushed by A0 and conveyor should start moving 2. If the item is metal, it has to be identified by Is. 3. Metal items are to be pushed by A1 and collected in C1. 4. Non-metal items are to be collected at the end of the belt to C2 5. If an item is in process, even if Os detects an item, it should not be pushed by A1 until the previous item is fully processed.
  • 7. Start -No item Os=0 Os=1 A0 should be ejected provided no other item is in process If the item is metal, it is sensed by Is. If Is=1 item is metal, this should be remembered If Is had been 1 it has to pushed by A1 after a time interval If the item is not metal, it should not be pushed and collected at the end. The time required to travel is also required.

  • 10. Design your automation what do we automate 1. What functions or what sections are to be automated 2. Partially, semi-automate, fully automate
  • 11. Design your automation Contd. How to automate 1. Conceptual design 2. Detail design
  • 12. Packing machines
  • 13. Current orientation of cups Blow Two options 1. Take it without blowing 2. Re-orient it after blowing
  • 14. Conceptual Design Do we need to use the same mechanism used in the manual methods ? Orienting Cups
  • 15. Milk Packet Machine
  • 16. Detail Design  Component Selection  Interfaces and Connections between sensors, instrum  Automating, controlling and communication requireme (The main function)  Safety requirements and interrupts  Maintainability  Cost and productivity analysis Objective
  • 17. Component Selection  Select sensors, signal conditioning, motors, actuators  Selection of the controller Note – The selection should match the objectives of automation
  • 18. Interfaces and connections  The can be communicated via design drawings. 1. Mechanical Flow diagram 2. ICM (Instrumentation, Control and Monitoring ) flow diagram based on mechanical flow diagram 3. Mechanical component diagram 4. Electrical component diagram 5. Electrical wiring diagram and wire cabinets 6. Communication network diagrams
  • 19. Automating Controlling The main requirement is documented. Different approaches are used. Written documents UML (Unified modeling Language) approach
  • 20. Implementation of automation system  Installation of systems 1. Mechanical 2. Electrical/Communications 3. Instruments 4. Wiring  Testing the system for basic working conditions  Programming the controllers according to the detail design requirements
  • 21. Programming Methods Programming method depends on the type of the controller and the selection of the programming language Types of Controllers
  • 22. Type of Controllers  Pneumatic controllers  Fixed Electronic controllers  Electro-mechanical relay types  PLC  Computer Control  Embedded Controllers  PAC  Integrated controllers
  • 23. Fixed Controllers 1. Electronic controllers or cards 2. Electro-mechanical controllers 3. Pneumatic controllers The above mentioned controllers cannot change the controlling system without changing the hardware of the control system The other types, can program the controller using software so that one can change the way it is controlled without changing hardware
  • 24. PLC- Programmable Logic Controllers Small Level Medium Level Advanced Level Programming Languages 1. Ladder 2. Functional Block diagrams 3. Statement Lists 4. Structured text 5. Sequential functional charts
