Automation & Electronics

Automation & Electronics info:

Automation is a method of controlling machines or equipment through electronic and automatic devices with as little human interference as possible. It has become especially prevalent within the industrial manufacturing field due to rapid innovations in computerized technology. Automated systems were developed as a way to minimize human error and maximize production efficiency, and they can take on many forms. From computer-controlled test equipment to automatically operated household appliances, automation can serve as a substitute for manual control in numerous ways. It has become an important part of both commercial and private life, and its range of applications only continues to grow.

Like automated systems, electronics technology is becoming more advanced and expanding its field of use. Electronic systems largely deal with device applications and electrical power distribution. But despite significant technical progress, electronics still focuses on the same fundamental aspects it encompassed since its beginnings in the nineteenth century: inputs, signal processors, and outputs.

Electric Double-Layer Capacitors (Supercapacitors)
Despite their apparent similarity to batteries, capacitors are actually designed and used in markedly different ways. A capacitor is an energy storage device that, unlike a battery, generates an electrical field between two parallel conductor plates.
Electrical Standoff Insulators
Although standoff insulators perform an ancillary function within most electrical systems, they can be critical for maintaining a devices operational capability.
Harmonic Oscillators Buying Guide
Oscillator circuits produce repetitive signals to control periodic activities of devices like watches and lights. Harmonic oscillators are a type of oscillator that produces these signals at a steady rate.
Inductors
This article offers a brief introduction to how inductors work, as well as several common types of inductor cores. Basic applications are also discussed.
