Electronic Systems & Control

The Electronic Systems and Control Research Group has many years of experience in the development, customisation and implementation of systems for measurement, monitoring and control in harsh industrial environments. Systems developed are used to improve operations and efficiencies of industrial plant, developments are taken from concept through to installation and commissioning. Personnel are drawn from academic and industrial backgrounds and include, electronics, electrical and mechanical engineers, metallurgists and technicians. Examples of developments include:

  • Level control system for molten metals
  • Condition monitoring slow moving bearings
  • Thermographic Vision systems for process monitoring
  • Audiometer for process monitoring
  • Portable flatness monitoring
  • Pushing force for plant integrity and process monitoring

The Group has a wide remit and is active in the areas of:

  • Productivity improvement
  • Plant Condition
  • Plant Lifetime extension
  • Cost reduction by improvements in efficiency
  • Process environmental impact and control
  • Process measurement review
  • Plant design review
