What is an example of an industrial embedded system?
Package industrial boiler is an important and complex stand alone system at many
schools, hospitals and manufacturing facilities. The function of a package boiler is to produce steam at well
defined rate and pressure. The embedded system on the package boiler has multiple temperature sensors, gas
flowmeters, air fans, CO monitor, water quality measurement, condensate level, and oxygen level in water. It
monitors steam demand and supplied the needed steam.
It accomplishes this major task while optimize air flow to maximize energy efficiency.
It also saves sensor data for environmental audits. It is hard to imagine such a system 5 years ago as
reliable computers running in hot environment were uncommon.
Above example is great for demonstrating energy efficiency and Green with Embedded
