PID process control in Industrial Automation.

Panel-mounted PID (Proportional-Integral-Derivative) process control has been a vital component in industrial automation for many years, providing accurate control of temperature, pressure, and other process variables. These controllers are typically mounted on a control panel and used to regulate the output of heating, cooling, and other process control equipment. Here is a quick look at […]


The Role of Communications Protocols in Process Controllers

Tecnologic – Process Control Equipment From industrial process controllers to home entertainment devices, it is increasingly rare for an electronics product to be completely standalone, with no ability to communicate with other devices or the wider world. From low cost micro PLCs to richly featured touch screen PLCs with integrated HMI by Unitronics, every PLC […]
