Industrial Automation and Embedded Development
We are living in an era of rapid industrial changes. Companies are facing more challenges now than they did in the past. Manufacturers are also the under pressure to keep innovating so that they can cater to customer demands for products with advanced features, but at low costs.
If companies want to meet these challenges, they have to create systems capable of delivering such flexibility, that can adapt faster to customer demands and help companies achieve cost effectiveness. The need of the hour is the availability of embedded devices with such capabilities while integrating with other industrial systems.
Embedded technology has been making inroads into industrial automation for some time now. Many companies have jumped into the fray, with a range of customized embedded tools. Many of these new embedded devices take a multi-platform approach to industrial automation, while retaining a strong security architecture. Another advantage is that embedded software developers can now use these devices to code better systems.
These solutions contain features and capabilities to assist equipment manufacturers to become competitive across a range of industrial devices like motor drive controllers, SCADA systems, industrial controllers, PLCs, process automation controllers and data acquisition devices. As you see, these devices have given embedded development a fillip. They are not only increasing profitability from industrial automation, but are also delivering other benefits like reduced power usage, system downtime and need for floor space.
