Without instrumentation, an automated system is more like a human without sense organs. As a living entity, we understand how critical it is for our senses to function properly and provide us with reliable data on a variety of criteria. We can listen, touch, taste, smell, and see objects, and we use a mixture of these senses in our brain to respond appropriately in situations. Similarly, it is understood that in an automated industry, we must programme various tools such as the PLC (brain), SCADA / HMI (which assists in monitoring), VFD (which assists in carrying out a direct process), and so on, but in order for them to respond based on the situation, they must receive precise feedback from the field.
Today, we can find instruments in the home as well as at the workplaces. This was made possible because of the science of instrumentation. In the scientific sense instruments are defined as the science and art of measuring and controlling processes within an industrial or manufacturing sector. The key process variables utilized in the industry include Level pressure, temperature Humidity, Flow Force, Speed, pH and so on. The advancement in science has opened the world of engineering instrumentation. Automation is the new buzzword in the process industry as well as automation being the main task of control and instrumentation engineers. Therefore, the need for automation and instrumentation will be always there.
As an engineer in control and instrumentation (C&I engineer) you’ll advance through your career generally gaining specific knowledge in a particular industry or area of C&I knowledge. You could pursue professional registrations like integrated engineer (IEng) or chartered engineer (CEng) in accordance with the level of education you have and it can assist in the advancement of your career.
In higher-level positions, you can manage a team or testing programs. The most senior positions have the highest degree of accountability and often involve managing and planning tasks, in addition to managing new development. Senior engineers working in the production and operations functions can frequently be directors at the board level.
Diploma/Certification In Process Control And Instrumentation (Duration 6 months / 3 months) course provided by SMEClabs will help the student to understand the Designing, Installation, Calibration and internal structure of all instruments that are used in measuring parameters related to electronics and also difference between analog meters and digital meters and their performance characteristics.
