Industrial Sensors - Types, Selection & Applications for process Control
Date : 24 to 25 August, 2022 Time : 1340 Hrs to 1700 Hrs Location / Mode : Online
Increasing demands for higher production quality, improved manufacturing efficiency, and more stringent environmental standards have led to the development of new and complex types of Industrial Automation. Hence the greater need for industrial sensors. These sensor systems are finding widespread application in diverse fields as machine tools, product inspection, automotive parts, and advanced composite aircraft. The sensors typically employ optical, ultrasonic, or microwave techniques to perform measuring functions.
This course provides an overall exposure to the technology of Industrial Sensors and Controls as widely seen in factories of all types both for discrete and continuous manufacturing. The course also covers a wide range of topics like Sensor data sheets, selection of a sensor, Connection techniques, and measurement systems in an automation system. It also includes sensors and signal conditioning, discrete and continuous variable control systems with IO-Link,
Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing an Online program on “Industrial Sensors - Types, Selection, & Applications for Process Control”
This program will be conducted by Mr. B Muralidhar, and Mr.Sudhanshu Kantoor.
Mr. B Muralidhar is an Industry Expert. He has completed AMIE from Institute of Engineers and has Industrial experience of 38 years in the Design and Development of electrical/electronic controls for various machine tools at HMT Machine Tools ltd. Bangalore.
He has started his carrier with the Design of Contactor logic for Cylindrical Grinding machines, Surface grinders, Gear shapers, SPMs, etc. With the evolvement of PLCs, Changed contactor logic to PLCs and have used almost all Siemens PLCs available as on date on various machine tools including SSMs & SPMs. In 1985, CNC cylindrical Grinding machine was developed using the Primo S system. Subsequently, many CNC machines like CYL. Grinders, Surface grinders, Gear Hobbers, Gear Shappers, SPMs, etc., were developed using CNC systems like Sinumerik, Hinumerik ( after HMT got collaboration from Siemens), Siemens 802D, Siemens 810D, Siemens 840D, Fanuc0 (MD & TD) systems, 828D, 840Dsl, and Fanuc0i. Apart from above, Assembly co-ordination, Prove out and commissioning at customer's end were our responsibilities.
Also, he contributed to various developmental activities such as a low-frequency converter for spindle orientation (PWM Technique) during the initial time, Pulse Generator for WEDM using IGBT, and during 2019-20, developed, Servo Manipulator with Force and Weight feedback.
Mr. Sudhanshu Kantoor is General Manager, Product Management - Factory Automation at Pepperl+Fuchs India. He is passionately involved in the field of Industrial Automation for over two decades. An avid software programmer in control automation, he brings in hands-on and supervisory experience in projects involving PLCs, Drives, Remote I/O and SCADA based systems, machines/process plants throughout India and also overseas. Avid enthusiast on technology, especially in the domain of networking and data communication. Working across the control platforms and leading implementation of I4.0 solutions for P+F Factory Automation business in India.
