6 Signs your Generator Needs Repairs

June 8, 2020

Topic: SCADA YASKAWA VFD mechanical and electrical repairs automated systems Generators

A generator is supposed to be there for you when you have an emergency power outage. So, if you don't want your power backup to fail, it's a good idea to make sure that your generator is in tip top running condition. You can do this easily by routinely running it and checking it for the following signs that repairs might be needed:



All About Vertical Turbine Pumps

Topic: industrial motor SCADA YASKAWA VFD controller systems mechanical and electrical repairs automated systems

A vertical turbine pump is an extremely versatile type of centrifugal pump that has a wide range of applications. They can be configured to provide both high flow and high pressure as needed and offer advantages over other pump types for transferring liquid. Let's take a look at the vertical turbine pump, how it works, and where they can be found in use.


Eliminate Harmonics With the Yaskawa U1000 Industrial Matrix Drive Increases Plant Efficiency

In simplest terms, harmonics can be defined as distortions to a voltage or current waveform. These distortions occur when non-linear, or non-sinusoidal, loads draw from a sinusoidal voltage source. In other words, harmonics can be generated whenever the smooth symmetrical sine wave of your AC power source is converted to squarish pulses by any of the plant components below, to name just a few of the most common harmonic sources.


Remote Condition Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance

November 5, 2018

Topic: remote monitoring industrial motor mechanical and electrical repairs automated systems

Addressing motor, pump, and control problems before they happen is the key to extending motor and pump lifecycles and maintaining profitable uptime. As manufacturing makes the digital transformation to Industrial 4.0, remote condition monitoring provides the critical asset protection solutions which can keep a plant competitive.

Plants must now function in an age where maintenance and engineering staffs are leaner and production demands require maximum uptime to generate revenue in today's highly competitive global markets. And motor and pump lifecycle economics is just one driver of the move to remote condition monitoring.


Smart Sensors and Control in the Age of Industry 4.0

July 25, 2018

Topic: electrical control motor and control expert automated systems

Plant engineers caught in the global transition to Industry 4.0, many of whom may be stuck with a patchwork of legacy equipment and obsolete systems, can make the technical case for investment in Industry 4.0 upgrades when ROI (return on investment) is the focus. From a predictive maintenance perspective, Industry 4.0 concepts can reduce downtime for maintenance with real-time condition monitoring and precision operations control and significantly extend machine life-cycles while reducing energy costs. That should get the attention of any reluctant CFO, but there are many more benefits that come when a company embraces the Industrial Internet of Things. (IIoT)


What is the Difference Between SCADA and DCS Systems?

Topic: automation automation in manufacturing technology in manufacturing automation technologies control systems factory automation new technology industrial technology SCADA DCS automated systems

While SCADA Industrial Control Systems (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) and DCS (Distributed Control Systems) originally began as separate systems they have partially merged together as bandwidth has broadened, thus making localized decisions at every node unnecessary. SCADA, then, includes both “control” and “data acquisition,” while DCS includes only “control.”


How to Use Automation to Save Energy in Manufacturing

The push is on to conserve resources without losing production, and automation in manufacturing is a well-proven method of doing so. Through the installation of specialized equipment, conveyors and automation software, a plant can reduce energy costs while increasing the amount of production the line is capable of.


ABB’s Automation Builder is Being Used in Many Different Applications

April 11, 2017

Topic: automation in manufacturing automation technologies automated systems automation builder

ABB’s Automation Builder unifies the capabilities of all systems, based on ABB program logic controllers (PLCs), robotics, motion control, and other industry automation components, into a single development environment. This integration significantly reduces software complexity, and eliminates a multitude of interface issues, hugely decreasing the number of problems that are linked to data exchange between the controller and the varied types of automated devices. Production is considerably enhanced when all the tools needed for programming, configuring, debugging, and maintenance are presented on a single user-friendly interface. Two industry trends reflect how ABB’s Automation Builder can be used for a multitude of applications.
