About Promwad

About Us

Since 2004, we have completed hundreds of electronics design projects for global brands and local manufacturers, which helped them to transform their business with cutting-edge technologies. We are primarily focused on Industry 4.0, IIoT, telecom, adaptive computing systems (FPGA + AI), and the automotive industry.

Industrial automation and robotics are an essential part of our key R&D activities. We work with many other calculations, such as the analysis of frequency deviation, currents and voltages, and calculation of active, reactive, and apparent power.

What is the difference between the IIoT and the standard approach in industrial automation systems and the power sector?


The standard approach solves certain tasks in the control of industrial processes. While, IIoT is an autonomous predictive system that is usually not directly included in the production process. With IIoT, processes can be monitored by measuring the metrics needed for predictive maintenance to make faster decisions at the business level. It involves edge processing, when data is transmitted to the cloud system, bypassing the transmission level to the PLC and the SCADA system.


Why is real-time networking important for industrial automation, and what technologies and tools do we use to achieve this?


For most systems in industrial automation, time is crucial:  they must be well-coordinated and react in real time to external influences at critical moments to guarantee the safety and efficiency of the whole process.

To ensure this parameter, we use safe real-time operating systems, and for supercritical systems, we offer FPGA-based solutions.


What is the lifecycle and temperature grade of components in industrial automation?


The solutions that are created for industrial automation have a long lifecycle of components. In this area, innovations must be considered from many perspectives because, when selecting a new device or embedded system, planning and its integration into the production chain can take years (even decades).

The temperature grade in industrial automation usually ranges from -40 to +85 degrees Celsius. Our developers are guided by these time and temperature frames when selecting components.


What is SIL? How is security defined at the hardware and software levels?


The SIL abbreviation stands for Safety Integrity Level and refers to the certification of software and hardware components to ensure their reliability and security.

SIL certification identifies all process hazards, assesses the risk of failure, and determines that if a failure occurs, the component will "fail safely". For the same process, there can be four safety levels, from SIL 1 to SIL 4 that are determined by calculating the hazard risk reduction factor (RRF).

The SIL level is ensured in terms of software, hardware, and descriptions of possible situations. Each level has an acceptable failure rate: the higher the level, the lower the failure rate.


Why is industrial automation a conservative industry?


Plants are critical facilities. Reliability and resilience are crucial for systems that are implemented in manufacturing because they directly affect people's lives — from industrial injuries to technological disasters. To avoid attacks on industrial facilities, systems must be minimally vulnerable at the device and communication protocol levels.

The new technology takes time to industrialise, and standards take a long time to adopt, so change comes slowly. For example, HMS Networks' research shows that, at the beginning of 2022, the share of wireless protocols was only 7%, and the bulk of data transmission still went through wired networks.

The hardware is changing, but popular networking technologies remain. All industrial protocols are closed as proprietary ones, so engineers have to join the organisation that develops them to find out how a particular standard works. This high entry threshold is due to the high demands placed on the reliability of the systems to be implemented. This is what makes the industrial automation industry so conservative.
