Join Zahraa Khalil for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Learn Industrial Automation.
- [Instructor] This course is to introduce you to the area of industrial automation. If you have ever wondered how many factoring automate their processes or how the robots in industrial automations are programmed or simply want to gain the knowledge by knowing the terminology and the different areas within industrial automation, this course is for you. No previous knowledge is required, as I will take you through the concepts, and you will be learning about what industrial automation is, the different levels and components within industrial automation, the programming languages used, and we'll be focusing on the common languages, ladder logic, and a block diagram.
And finally, introducing the OPC and SCADA.
Learn about the components and networks involved at each level of automation: field level, control level, and management level. Explore the different devices involved, from the programmable logic controllers (PLCs) on the factory floor, to OPC software that give technicians insights into operations. Instructor Zahraa Khalil, an engineer and educator, also provides an overview of SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition), an industrial control system architecture that enables supervision over large distances and multiple sites.
