The fastest changing aspects of industrial automation involve the electrical control of machines, a practice often referred to as “mechatronic automation”. Just like consumer electrical products such as tablets and TVs that seem to have technology advancements every few months, the advancements in electronic industrial automation components are rapidly changing. If you are not involved with the design of industrial controls for machines on a daily basis like we are, it can be a daunting task to pick the right components.

Much of the development in mechatronic automation deals with: 1) easier ways to hook up and control the components on manufacturing machines, and 2) providing feedback on machine operation performance to the statistical control systems that are present in many modern manufacturing facilities. 
 
Serial communication allows users to control and receive feedback from numerous electronic components through a single cable as opposed to having to individually hardwire all of the components back to the PLC (Programmable Logic Controller). HMI (Human Machine Interface) devices like touchscreens are getting bigger, with higher resolution, more color options, and lower prices all the time. PLC development has progressed just like computers in that they are getting smaller with more outputs and memory. 
 
Another area of mechatronic automation that is developing rapidly is the ability to remotely control and monitor machines. Imagine being able to make machine adjustments or troubleshoot problems on a machine located anywhere in the world from your smartphone. With Provoast Automation Controls’ mechatronic automation solutions, it is now possible.
