A Robust Solution for Industrial Wastewater Monitoring System

Posted by Kari Grosser on Feb 7, 2017 10:15:00 AM

Project Introduction

Industrial wastewater is one of the key contamination sources in the pollution of water. With the rapid economic development, a huge amount of industrial wastewater has been discharged in to rivers, lakes and coastal areas during the last century and caused serious pollution and brought negative effects upon the eco-system and human life. This has resulted in many governments taking action to prevent, control and abated water pollution, thereby promoting the environmental monitoring industry to accelerate its transformations and upgrade. Compared to the accustomed method of examining wastewater discharge by manually sampling once every six months, there are more and more requirements for gathering real-time and long-term data so as to improve effectiveness of monitoring.

Tuna Farming Water Tank Monitoring and Control

Posted by Kari Grosser on Feb 4, 2017 10:00:00 AM

Project Introduction

As depleting oceanic fish stocks are forcing fish producers to move inland improving the quality of aquaculture systems using automation devices has become essential. To manage their farms, fish farmers use a variety of equipment such as air pumps, water filters, coolers, heaters, sunshades, heat insulation and ozone generation paraphernalia in the aquaculture farm to ensure the health of the fish. In order to ensure high quality production, the aquaculture manager not only has to understand the situations of multiple fish tanks, e.g. PH value, temperature, and CO2 levels of water, but also needs to control the various devices to keep the indoor temperature at a steady state. However, maintaining these conditions increases the complexity of aquaculture management.

A Truly Total Solution for Factory Automation

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jan 19, 2017 10:30:00 AM

Project Introduction

In order to optimize manufacturing management, manufacturers need visibility to accurately control workflow information. As a result, there are more companies willing to implement Manufacturing Executing Systems (MES). According to the definition of Manufacturing Execution System Association (MESA), "MES delivers information that enables the optimization of production activities from order launch to finished goods". However, the lack of bottom layer information, which is responsible for the physical control of machinery and equipment, makes MES unable to maximize effectiveness of factory automation. In addition, industrial grade devices to precisely acquire signals and immediately deliver data are also important for such automation applications due to the harsh environments in factories.

Real-Time Temperature Monitoring for PCB Baking Equipment

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jan 14, 2017 9:55:00 AM

Introduction

Baking, a process that involves lamination, soldering, and printing, is often used in the manufacture of printed circuit boards (PCB) to eliminate moisture, dry graphite, and harden resin. However to avoid damage to or failure of the board components, the baking temperature and duration must be carefully controlled. Traditionally, PCB factories use standalone ovens with an embedded proportional integral derivative (PID) controller.

Optimize Your Facility Management for High-tech Factories

For hi-tech factories that operate 24 hours a day 7 days a week, the occurrence of unstable voltage, fire alarm, gas leaks or liquid leaks is likely to reduce production rate and even result in downtime incurring huge losses. These factories, for example, plants for fabricating semiconductors, TFT-LCD panels, multi-crystalline solar cells, or LED, usually use facilities such as high-voltage equipment, emergency power supply system, nitrogen or other special gas system, ultra-pure water systems, waste water treatment equipment or clean rooms to supply continuous production. Advantech Facility Monitoring and Control System is especially designed for hi-tech plants to provide automatic monitoring over their facilities, which takes control of power supply systems, water treatment systems, gas supply systems, clean rooms and other plant facilities and closely watches over their status with automatic detection and real time alerts and alarms which will notify plant workers if any abnormal situation happens, so as to reduce downtime as well as minimize production losses.
