Main Types of Control Equipment and Automation Level
The type of control system and instrumentation to be selected will depend on its location (e. g., the danger of fire, explosion, pollution, moisture, the conditions of temperature and its variations). The control equipment can be classified as
1. Electromechanical and electronic
2. Data-based control (DDC/PLC)
3. Pneumatic control
4. Mixed electronic-pneumatic system
The level of automation depends on the requirements for the technical operation of the attendance system, the need for communication with other processes and data systems, and the requirements for electrical and pneumatic components and cabling methods.
