Factory automation needs to be absolutely accurate because any interruption or delay could result in huge amount of lost, especially when the operation is non-stop, 7/24/365. On the other hand, to satisfy the rapid changing industry environment, manufacturing process must have high flexibility than before.Conveyor system The mechanical handling equipment moves materials from one location to another, especially useful for the transportation of heavy or bulky materials. It’s quick, efficient, and popular in the material handling and packaging industries. Robotic Arm The programmable robot manipulator is designed to perform any desired task such as welding, gripping, spinning etc., depending on the application. The robot arm in automotive assembly lines performs a variety of tasks with great accuracy.In factory automation applications, the most common structure consists of PLC, DCS, and SCADA. Based on IP protocol, managers are able to control equipments and transmit data to SCADA, where connects with database and then generate statistic data for monitoring the operating status. Lantech’s Pro-Ring system provides the reliable Ethernet network among these devices and software with the fastest recovery time if failure. As the equipments are all utilizing IP protocol and connect to the Ethernet, it’s easier to integrate and change configuration through Internet.Due to the requirement of absolute accurate data transmission, there is a huge need for real time protocols in factory automation applications, including ProfiNet by Siemens, EthernetIP by Rockwell, and ModBUS by Schneider. The real time protocols were developed by the need of PLC’s connecting with robotic arms, conveyor belts and other automation devices for factory automation. This created the need for switches to be compatible with real time protocols. By collocating with Ethernet switches, managers are able to monitor the status, detect the failure, and solve the problem immediately. Product Selections:



G&W has been providing innovative, custom automation solutions to the power industry for many years. A long time leader of automated switchgear, G&W’s expertise has now positioned them from component supplier to complete automation system integrator. Our expertise in matching the ideal system components for the application has led to variety of pre-engineered solutions which we call our Lazer Automation System. G&W’s Lazer offerings cover the main automation requirements of today including automatic transfer, voltage loss reconfiguration, fault isolation reconfiguration and, of course, smart grids. G&W’s Lazer Automation solutions address 5kV to 38kV networks in a Smart Grid and function to automatically restore faulted circuits that have lost voltage. A Smart Grid is a power network where all components, such as switches, controls, meters, etc, have the ability to communicate system information to each other permitting an automatic response without the need for dispatching operating crews to the site. The goal is to maximize the reliability and efficiency of the network while giving individual consumers control over their consumption. Some of the basic technologies are SCADA, automatic reconfiguration and restoration, AMR/AMI (meter reading) software, smart meters, and renewable energy integration. G&W’s solution helps our customers improve system reliability and efficiency, decrease outage times, and significantly reduce total life cycle costs. Every solution is customized to meet or exceed customers’ requirements, based on their choice of G&W switchgear combined with innovative controls and communication equipment that is fully system tested prior to shipment. We focus on achieving complete system integration, so we’re very flexible about providing customers with many equipment options. We’ll strive to integrate any manufacturer per customer preference. Some of the major manufacturers of system components include: Recent examples of G&W power automation solutions include:
