The Impact of 5G Era on Industrial Automation in Industrial Control Industry

Sep. 29, 2019

If we want to select a few keywords as our review of the past few months of 2019, there is no doubt that 5G will be one of them. At the end of April, the three major national telecom operators issued their respective annual 5G strategic plans. In less than a month, 5G network, 5G mobile phone, 5G commercial popularization, and the new giants that will emerge in the 5G era have also become a hot topic of increasing concern. 5G is coming. What shall we do? 5G is a higher network speed, 5G bandwidth brings about the improvement of the Internet experience is intuitive, with mobile phones can watch real-time video with higher definition. The experience improvement brought by lower delay and higher reliability to C-end users is relatively much smaller. The delay of opening web pages is reduced from 50ms to 10ms, and consumers can hardly perceive the difference.


The majority of industries, including industrial control, such as automation, heavy industry, machinery, medical, manufacturing, life services, etc., also need to re-evaluate and consider their opportunities and risks in this background. Because 5G is different from 4G, it represents a network acceleration, but not limited to it. It is more like a new trigger point, because its predictability has changed the current situation of our production, life and social governance, and how far-reaching impact it will have is not yet possible to calculate.


At present, it is one of the most effective means to ensure the stable operation of the base station to install the dynamic ring monitoring system on the industrial mini PC. It can realize the management of a large number of scattered and wide-ranging independent base stations at the same time. It monitors the system and adjusts the environmental parameters of the base station through remote testing, communication, control and adjustment. For example, according to the change of system parameters to judge whether the base station is abnormal or not, to predict the occurrence of the fault or to detect the fault in time, to inform the relevant personnel to deal with the fault in time, to eliminate the fault, so as to realize the unmanned power of the mobile base station, greatly improving the production efficiency and power supply. The reliability of the system and the security of communication equipment.


At present, many customers have chosen industrial embedded computer to support the entire software system. In addition to the advantages of small size, low power consumption and high performance, the micro-embedded industrial PC of Touch Think can adapt to wide temperature, wide voltage power supply, strong anti-vibration ability and other harsh environments. According to the application functions and scenarios of various industries, it can provide targeted industry solutions with emphasis, which can better guarantee the security. Guarantee the operation ability and stability of industrial computer.


For industrial field, the situation is quite different. Many years ago, the concept of Industrial Internet has been put forward, but until the mobile Internet is so popular, the proportion of equipment networking in the industrial field is still very small. The main reason is that the current Internet in terms of delay and reliability is still not up to requirements. The coming of 5G era has an impact on industrial automation. The industrial field includes many vertical industries. The larger industries are manufacturing, transportation, energy, construction and mining. The characteristics of each industry vary greatly. The combination of the Internet of Things and each industry should also be based on its own characteristics. If we abstract the application of the Internet of Things in the industry, we can summarize it into four levels: data collection and display, basic data analysis and management, in-depth data analysis and application, and industrial control. According to the depth of business processes involved, these four levels summarize the current application and value of industrial Internet of Things from shallow to deep.


The possible impact of 5G on the industrial Internet of Things. 5G system is designed for many application scenarios that are not even known yet. The design of 5G system adopts a top-down approach. Firstly, it defines the future application scenarios, then abstracts the technical requirements from the scenarios, and then finds solutions according to each specific requirement, and develops specific solutions. The application of 4G in industrial scenarios is more in scenarios with low real-time requirements, as a way to upload data to the cloud. For example, machine tools in factories collect data every 5-10 seconds, which is usually aggregated into a unified terminal, which is sent to the cloud platform via 4G. In order to ensure the stability of data transmission of machine tools and equipment, in the factory, the connection between each machine tool and the unified terminal is usually wired. This connection mode is still not very good, a large number of cables will also lead to more complex internal structure of the factory. When the performance of mobile network system is improved to be able to replace cable, the complexity of the internal structure of the factory will be reduced and it will be easier to manage.
