Abstract


Monitoring and control of technological processes in many production units demands transfer of information and interaction with the process from remote distances. For this purpose, the process control systems have been designed and developed. In the first project phase, the separate production lines were covered by independent control systems. In the second phase, the individual control systems were interconnected in a large heterogeneous industrial network, forming the distributed control system (DCS). This paper presents results of development of specific hardware and software solutions for monitoring of technological processes, with special regards to communication systems structure.


Keywords
