3. relative slow response time,

4. typical measurements; temperature, pressure, ‡ow, level,

5. typical actuators; pumps and control valves,

6. usage of PID control loops.

Factory automation consisting of:

1. discrete production with sequence of digital measurement signals,

2. relative fast response time,

3. typical measurements; on/o¤, positions, valid/not valid,
