Industrial automation instrumentation is widely used in the information collection, transmission, display, recording and control execution of industrial production, and is known as "industrial information machine" and "industrial IT".
The industrial automation instrument industry is the basic industry of modern industry. It provides basic components for allergic pillar industries such as metallurgy, non-ferrous metals, chemicals, electric power, petroleum, building materials, papermaking, pharmaceuticals, environmental protection, and national defense. Its technical level has become a measure of a country’s The indicator of the degree of industrial modernization plays an extremely important role in the national economy.
The development status of industrial automation instrument in our country
After decades of development, my country's automated instrumentation has gradually extended to more and more applications, and constituted a fairly large-scale industrial architecture with advanced technology. In most instrument fields such as display type, temperature control type, flow control type and pressure control type, it has already possessed key core solutions, mastered the independent research and development capabilities of some new products, and exported products overseas.
However, compared with developed countries in Europe and America, there is still a big gap in industrial automation instrumentation in my country, and the engineering applicability and stability of instrumentation devices must be further improved. At the same time, most of the current meters are for general purposes, and the intelligent meters suitable for the new situation still need to be studied and developed in depth.
Problems encountered in the development of industrial automation instruments in my country
Compared with the cutting-edge products of western developed countries, the starting point of my country's automation instrumentation is low, and the foundation is not solid enough, and the gap is obvious.
First of all, in the development process of my country's industrial automation instrumentation, innovation is insufficient. Most companies import a complete set of systems from abroad, but they are unable to fully study it and fail to transform it into independent scientific and technological achievements.
Secondly, the surrounding unfavorable factors restrict its future development. As we all know, automated instruments can effectively promote the rapid development of the domestic economy and society, but the government has not issued effective incentives for this industry. On the other hand, because some companies do not recognize domestically produced instruments and do not have enough confidence in them, the vicious circle has led to the formation of a tradition of keen to adopt imported products.
Third, in the instrument industry, the level of cutting-edge technology and instruments is low, the stability of the products is insufficient, the performance of the products is poor, and there is a lack of special products for some special occasions. High-end instruments are usually dominated by foreign products, and large-scale instruments are mainly imported.
The development trend of industrial automation instrument
In recent years, the rapid development of information technology has given rise to opportunities for industrial automation instrumentation. Especially in the new century, communication technology advances by leaps and bounds, and the R&D goals and architecture concepts of instruments have also undergone earth-shaking changes. A large number of traditional functions of ordinary instruments have appeared, and new special instruments have been developed.
In 2017, the "Development and Application of CMC-based Industrial Automation Instrumentation" project in the field of advanced manufacturing technology of the 863 Program passed the technical acceptance. The development and application of intelligent instrumentation with CMC's independent core software and hardware has realized the localization of the core technology of intelligent instrumentation and improved the independent controllability and level of domestic instrumentation.
In addition, some domestic instrument companies have also begun to explore the in-depth integration of new-generation information technologies such as mobile Internet and big data with traditional industrial automation businesses, and have achieved remarkable results in the development and application of intelligent IoT industrial automation instruments.
With the rapid development of information, Internet, Internet of Things and other technologies, the intelligence, networking and safety of industrial control systems have become the focus of attention of governments and enterprises in various countries. Industrial automation instrumentation is the core and key component of industrial control systems. It has broad application prospects in thermal power, petrochemical, chemical and environmental protection industries. In the future, industrial automation instruments will develop in the direction of intelligence, wireless, online scientific instruments, high precision, and soft measurement technology.
