Control systems

Control technology: That is how it works

Control technology is an important component in the world of automation. In control technology input values determine the performance of outputs, often by means of an interposed actuator. As opposed to feedback control technology the output value is not returned to the input by the controller. Switching signals are usually processed digitally or binarily in control technology. The transmission of measured values such as pressure and temperature is usually made via analogue 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 almost all applications such as:

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

Principally there are hardly any technical processes today in industry and in domestic areas that work without any controls. That has to do with the applications that are becoming more and more complex and that have individual requirements on technology.
