Today, automation and control technology is cutting edge, and an integral part of the fourth industrial revolution (aka Industry 4.0). Many manufacturers are switching over to smart factories, with equipment seamlessly connected to the IIoT, or Industrial Internet of Things. Comprehensive communication networks allow you to control some or all aspects of your facility using fixed or portable devices, radically changing the way we work.

Much of this is down to the continued integration of artificial intelligence into industrial systems, and the networked processes that contribute to the IIoT. It involves increased reliance on sensory inputs, collecting big data for analysis and processing. Together with Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) and logic controllers, we're also seeing an expansion in the fields of virtual and augmented reality, enabling us to create better design and production environments.

Modern automation and control is also centred around improving energy efficiencies, so as to cut down on direct consumption and its costs. We're much more focused on industry's environmental impact and cleaner energy initiatives, so that we reduce our carbon footprint and become less destructive.

Our aim at Rowse Automation is to keep you updated with the latest news and technological advances – as they're happening.
