Control systems in the process and manufacturing industries can range from a simple sequential logic controller with few inputs and outputs to a complex system with thousands of I/O's, complex control algorithms and time critical performance requirements.
Most industrial control applications can be readily managed by Programmable Controllers. The fast leaps in CPU performance and enhancements of programming utilities, eliminates the need for DCS and more traditional proprietary approaches to automation solutions.
Critical applications such as speed synchronization in a process line, equipment or product positioning, and fast data collection, can be easily addressed using the low cost PLC tools.
Networking of systems including drives, PLC's, sensors, HMI's and data servers is readily accomplished through robust, low cost communication networks.
Thrust Automation has accumulated many years of experience in successful applications of PLC and computer technologies to the conventional as well as the highly critical process environments.
