In the field of discrete automation, control tasks are typically executed by PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) systems. For continuous and batch processes, Distributed Control Systems (DCS) play a crucial role. The competence area at the University of Miskolc focuses on the comprehensive design and implementation of control systems. This encompasses the development of control networks, communication systems, selection, and integration of suitable hardware and software components, as well as the implementation of controlling, data communication, and monitoring functions.
