Trends in Automation: Trends to Watch in 2016

As we begin the first week of 2016 we’d like to take some time to examine the growing trends in industrial automation and make our best predictions about where they’re headed in this and coming years. Most of what we are seeing now is a steady upswing of the technologies that emerged in recent years as theories that didn’t necessarily have the available technology for efficient adoption. Now that technology is rapidly catching up, and we expect to see these trends continue throughout the year. Continue reading

Stadium Automation with InduSoft Web Studio

This automated stadium project was created by students Cristian Gallego, Juan Manuel Galiando and Jose Carlos Sanchez, and supervised by teacher and Mgs William Prado as a part of the InduSoft Web Studio educational licensing program. The main objective was to control a stadium, that has three components: an automated sunroof controlled by limit switches, a temperature and humidity sensor, and manual control through an InduSoft Web Studio HMI. Lighting includes both internal and external illumination powered by relays, which are controlled by software manually or set to a timer for 8:00PM. The last component includes monitoring of visitor entry to the stadium. For this component, a barrier sensor registers each arrival and saves them to a text file. Continue reading

What to Do When an Old InduSoft Web Studio Application Doesn’t Fit On a New Monitor

Here is the scenario: You designed an application some time ago and the platform that it was designed for was using a 4:3 aspect ratio (example: 1024 x 768) monitor or machine. Now the customer wants to replace the machine because it is getting old, or perhaps they need a second machine installed, and that monitor or machine isn’t available any more – only ones of a different aspect ratio such as 16:9 (1360 x 768) . What can be done to accommodate this change without re-creating the application in new resolution? Continue reading
