Industrial instrumentation is a general term that encompasses measuring instruments (for indicating, measuring and recording physical quantities) and process control systems.
Industrial instrumentation is the basis for process control. Field instrumentation devices control local operations such as collecting or transmitting data from sensors, and monitoring the local environment for alarm conditions.
GE-Ctrls sources field instrumentation from reputed manufacturers to bring you a wide range of devices:
Pressure Gauges: These devices are a means of mechanical pressure measurement. A variety of pressure gauges such as air pressure, oil pressure, differential pressure, diaphragm pressure gauges are available.
Pressure Transmitters/Transducers: These devices convert pressure inputs into an analog electrical signal output. Several types of pressure transducers such as strain-gauge, Bourdon Tubes, variable capacitance, resonating frequency, etc. are available.
Flow and Level Meters: These devices measure mass flow rate, volumetric flow rate, density, temperature, and level readings for gases and liquids. Various types of industrial gas flow meters (thermal, vortex, differential pressure, etc.) and liquid flow meters (ultrasonic, magnetic, Coriolis, variable area, positive displacement, turbine, etc.) are available.
Temperature Transmitters: These electrical devices interface temperature sensors with measurement or control devices. Common temperature sensors (e.g., thermistors) produce very small signals which cannot be read in cases where the temperature of a remote process is being monitored. Hence, the sensors can be connected to a temperature transmitter which conditions and amplifies this small signal before transmitting it to a control device.
Humidity, Density, Viscosity, and pH Sensors: Many processes in the textiles, wood, and chemical processing industries are sensitive to factors such as humidity, density viscosity and pH necessitating the use of sensors to measure these factors.
Control Valves: These pneumatic or electronically actuated devices enable accurate control of fluid flow. They are ideal for use in oil and gas, water, power, petrochemicals, steel and other manufacturing sectors.

The engineering discipline of process control deals with the mechanisms and algorithms necessary for maintaining a measured output variable from an industrial process within set limits by varying the controlled input variables to the process.
Control systems vary extensively in complexity. Industrial controllers in the petrochemical industry, automotive industry, for example have complex control loops that require microprocessor supervision while control loops such as those used for controlling HVAC systems are not as complex. Implementation of the control loops is done using analog or digital electronics.
Process control enables automation, by which a small staff of operating personnel can operate a complex process from a central Process Control Room (PCR). PCR contain video walls (including LED and LCD projection cubes and flat panels), video wall controllers and wall management software that enable personnel to monitor and control a wide array of information. We can also provide control room consoles and furniture that are ergonomically designed that allow for operator comfort and freedom of movement which can increase productivity.
