Measurement reliability and accuracy help the plant operators to optimize the processes, minimize downtime and maximize production, says Gaurav Chandakkar, Marketing Manage of VEGA India Level & Pressure Measurement Pvt. Ltd.
India’s instrumentation and control technology market is on a growth path.
Instrumentation and control Market trends
The key to the growth of this market is increasing automation. The advancement in robotics, AI and machine learning has primarily contributed to increased knowledge and adoption of automation techniques, which result in increased production, good use of human resources and efficient production systems. The best way to evaluate the market is to analyze the major vendors that provide instrumentation for process automation. One can also assess the value-chain associated. Vendor landscaping will give a fair understanding of the market trends.
VEGA India products comply with safety and quality standards worldwide
An innovative level and pressure measurement technology that combines high safety standards and efficiency with easy operability is what VEGA has stood for the past 60 years. VEGA India, a wholly-owned subsidiary of VEGA Grieshaber KG, Germany, has been catering to the Indian market for over a decade. The product portfolio includes sensors for the measurement of level, point level and pressure, as well as hardware and software for integration into process control systems. All its products and services are designed to uphold the ‘made in Germany’ quality promise. As a pioneer in Radar technology, we provide the optimum solutions to all industries, including pharmaceutical, food and beverages, chemical, cement, power, petroleum and other process industries. VEGA India, an ISO 9001, 14001 and 45001 certified company, holds all necessary certificates and approvals that indicate its products comply with safety and quality standards worldwide.
Innovative developments evolving in testing instruments for predictive maintenance
We are mainly a measurement technology provider. From our perspective, the cyber security of the communication to and from the sensor is of utmost importance. Hence, our sensorVEGAPULS 6X conforms to IEC 62443, which fulfils the strictest requirements for system access and communication control security. It thus guarantees comprehensive process security right through to the control system. Another important aspect contributing to this would be its self-diagnosis system. It continuously monitors the function of the sensor and recognizes if it has been impaired in any way, thus contributing significantly to higher plant availability and sensor performance.
Automation in the test and measurement industry increases the life of the machinery
VEGA has already contributed to the safety and efficiency of many processes through the modular plics® instrument series. The measurement reliability and accuracy help the plant operators to optimize the processes, minimize downtime and maximize production. Accuracy in measurement technology also enables the operators to avoid uncalled critical conditions. At the same time, the appropriate signalling mechanism of these instruments helps them detect the malfunction at a very early stage preventing further damage to any plant machinery.
