Low cost automation: techniques, components, and instruments, applications : selected papers from the IFAC Symposium, Milan, Italy, 8-10 November, 1989
Published for the International Federation of Automatic Control by Pergamon Press, 1991 - Technology & Engineering - 507 pages
The Symposium sought to cover a number of methods used to achieve low cost automation in industry today. The first half of the volume deals with the techniques developed to provide a low cost alternative; these include computer-aided design, electrical devices, P I D controllers, modelling, petri nets and systems. A further section covers components and instruments which affect such things as reliability aspects and new instrumentation. The papers in the second half of the volume cover the applications of the aforementioned techniques and are applied in general purpose control strategies, manufacturing and factory automation, and computer networks.
