Functional Safety SERVICES
Automation IT has extensive experience in the design of control systems across a range of industries and applications. Our experience in industrial control systems has enabled us to provide a range of solutions to not only control machinery but also protect the machinery and its operators from unsafe situations or hazards.
If we look at a typical safety application in some detail, what we have essentially is a control system operating machinery via a set of hydraulic, electric or other controls with a series of monitoring devices and safety interlocks to ensure the safe motion of the object.
The key items to note are the means of actuation, the personnel exposed to the machine and the requirements for safety interlocking. The failure of the control system could result in injury, possibly death and uncontrolled motion causing equipment downtime and machinery damage.
Our services apply standards AS4024,  EN ISO 13849 in addition to IEC62061 and IEC 61508 to achieve the required safety functions for this type of application, check out our blog to read more.
Automation IT attends Hanover Messe 2015, Hanover, Germany
Touted as the largest industrial show in the world, Hanover Messe had more than 220,000 trade visitors – 70,000 of whom came from outside Germany to see the latest developments in industrial automation and manufacturing technology. During the show some 6,500 companies from 70 countries showcased technologies for tomorrow’s production plants and energy systems.  
Just one of the 37 exhibition halls at Hanover Messe 2015
Automation IT attended the show with clear objectives of sourcing new products to make our business more efficient and ensure that our clients are provided the best of breed engineered solutions.  Attendees were left with no doubt which way industry is headed as the push for doing more with less continues into the future.

"HANNOVER MESSE 2015 has made it unmistakably clear: Industry 4.0 has arrived, and is sweeping every sector of industry. Digital integration is becoming a key aspect of modern manufacturing, and this trend is set to continue at a rapid pace"
Dr. Jochen Köckler, member of the Managing Board at Deutsche Messe.

Robots also figured prominently at the fair, drawing keen visitor interest with their captivating demonstrations of speed, precision and power. But integration is not confined to mere production operations, as energy systems also rapidly become intelligent, driving the transition to renewable forms of energy. An increasing number of decentralized power generators – including wind, solar, hydroelectric and biogas plants – are being hooked up to the grid at an incredible rate.
To benefit from the surge towards industry 4.0 please contact Automation IT today!
Clean Power - Power.... from rubbish!
Landfill gas (LFG) is generated through the degradation of municipal solid waste (MSW) by microorganisms. The quality (higher percent methane gases signify higher qualities) of the gas is highly dependent on the composition of the waste, presence of oxygen, temperature, physical geometry and time elapsed since waste disposal. The amount of methane that is produced varies significantly based on composition of the waste. Most of the methane produced in MSW landfills is derived from food waste, composite paper, and corrugated cardboard. The rate of landfill gas production varies with the age of the landfill.
Automation IT is proud to be part of cleaner energy solutions and has built a number of LFG Flare and Generator cubicles for LGI.

THE LIGHTER SIDE - Senior Romance?
An older couple was lying in bed one night. The husband was falling asleep but the wife was in a romantic mood and wanted to talk.
She said, “You used to hold my hand when we were courting.” Wearily he reached across, held her hand for a second and tried to get back to sleep.
A few moments later she said, “Then you used to kiss me.”
Mildly irritated, he reached across, gave her a peck on the cheek and settled back down to sleep.
Thirty seconds later she said, “Then you used to bite my neck.”
Angrily, he threw back the doona and got out of bed.
“Where are you going?” she asked.
“To get my teeth!”
