About Industrial Control

Automation is of increasing importance in the industrial control of production systems. It requires the ability to troubleshoot, both during installation and in working systems, either across industries or in a specialist area. Industrial control electricians will need a wide range of skills, learning the installation of cables, instruments and control centers, circuit design and programming. Automation technology is developing rapidly, requiring a strong interest in keeping up with the very latest developments.
