Industrial Control

Installing, troubleshooting, and maintaining industrial automated and electrical production systems.

Why is this skill important?

Industrial Control contains elements of both electrical installations and automation installations, with greater emphasis on automation installation. The industrial control practitioner requires a wide range of technical skills, such as installing conduits, cables, instruments, I/O devices and Programmable Logic Controllers. The industrial control practitioner also designs electrical circuits, programs Programmable Logic Controllers, parametrizes bus systems and configures Human Machine Interfaces.

The working environment is likely to be one that is potentially very dangerous and hazardous. The industrial control practitioner proactively promotes best practices in health and safety and rigorously adheres to health and safety legislation.

Troubleshooting is an important skill of the industrial control practitioner and includes identifying problems during equipment installations in a new plant or remedying problems within an existing plant.

The industrial control practitioner has a wide range of industrial settings in which to work. They may be employed in one particular plant and install and maintain production equipment; or they may be employed by a sub-contractor and work in a number of industrial settings.

Delays in production as a result of reliability issues on the production line can have business implications not only financially but also for the company’s reputation. Therefore, the industrial control practitioner needs to work efficiently and effectively to meet time constraints, while also providing expert advice and guidance to management on both technical production issues and on innovative and cost-effective solutions to production problems and requirements. A key skill of the practitioner is troubleshooting, identifying problems during installation, or remedying problems with an established plant.
