Don't know the difference between a PLC and a control valve? Wondering what a SCADA system is and how it is used in industrial automation? This presentation will discuss the basis of industrial control and automation systems from gathering sensor data to basic control loops and virtualized workload consolidation models. Through this session you will be better prepared for the more advanced sessions focusing on specific industrial systems. You will also have a better understanding of where a software developer fits into to the industrial IoT ecosystem and how Intel can help you develop industrial solutions.
Topics: Sensors and Actuators, Signal Processing, Control Loops, Popular Industrial Protocols, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Human Machine Interface (HMI), Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Virtualized Control Systems.
