Control systems

Control technology: How it works

Control technology is an important component in the world of automation. In control technology input values determine the performance of outputs. As opposed to feedback control technology the output value is not returned to the input by the controller.  Switching signals are usually processed digitally in control technology. The transmission of measured values such as pressure and temperature is usually made via analog signals. Digital protocols are, however, more and more often used since they are less prone to interference.

Application examples of control technology

Control technology is a relevant element in automation technology and is used in applications such as:

  • Machine control in industrial and manufacturing processes
  • Time-programmed controls
  • Controllers in building management systems (e.g. control of blinds or light)

There aren't many technical processes today in industrial and domestic areas that work without any controls. This is due to  applications becoming more and more complex and having individual requirements.
