Automation and Control

The widespread use of automation across many manufacturing industries brings clear benefits in terms of efficiency, costs, and quality.  Further developments enabled by emerging technology such as universal robots, the Internet of Things and low-cost / low-power wireless networking will continue to drive automation into new areas.

Within hazardous areas though, automation presents new and widespread challenges. While some parts of any system can be located in a safe area, distributed elements such as sensors and local controllers will need appropriate hazardous area certification. 

Expo works with end-users, OEMs and system integrators to develop solutions for these challenges. In many cases, standard equipment can continue to be used, with Expo providing protection technology and certification.

Typical applications for Expo products in Automation & Control include:

  • Motor control panels                                                                                                     
  • PLC/DCS panels                                                                                                              
  • Fire system control stations                                                                                      
  • Computer and printer workstations                                                                      
  • On-line process analysers                                                                                          
  • Robotics
