Types of Industrial Control Systems

Many industries have uses for different sorts of ICS electronic applications. Virtually all critical infrastructure and areas of industrial production, water treatment, transportation, and power management require some type of ICS, along with its associated procedures and devices.


Industrial Control Systems are organized into several classes by reference to their control action’s relative complexity of the overall functions of the ICS. Common types of these control systems that will be discussed further include:


Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs)


• Distributed Control Systems (DCS)


Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs)


Supervisory control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)


Programmable Automation Controllers (PACs)


Human-Machine Interface (HMI)


Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS)


Remote Terminal Units (RTUs)
