The use of spread-spectrum technologies may allow users to move around within a local coverage area and still remain connected to the network. This is especially handy for devices such as portable HMIs. 11 WLAN standards are marketed under the Wi-Fi brand name. Fixed wireless technology implements point-to-point links between computers or networks at two distant locations, often using dedicated microwave or modulated laser light beams over line of sight paths. It is often used in systems such as AGVs (automated guided vehicles), which move products around within a factory.

Filter regulators (FR) and filter-regulator lubricators (FRL) are relatively low-cost and are regularly used at the entry point to a pneumatic control system. Additional pressure regulators, flow controls, and valves are used to control actuators for the desired effect. Control valves are common in 120VAC and 24VDC varieties. 13 shows how these components are combined in a typical pneumatic circuit. Air pressure in industrial facilities can be as high as several hundred psi, but typically pneumatic cylinders are operated at 60 to 80 psi.

Set integral and derivative variables to zero (0). 3. Start the process and adjust the proportional/gain tuning parameter until the PV starts modulating above and below the SP. 4. Time a cycle or period of this oscillation. Record this time as the natural period or cycle time. 5. After timing and recording the cycle, reduce the P (proportional) value to half of the setting needed to achieve the natural cycle. 6. At this point set the I (integral) parameter to the natural cycle. This will decrease the amount of time it takes for the PV to reach SP than with the P setting alone.
