The industrial control computer is called the industrial control computer. It is a computer specially designed for industrial control. It is used to monitor and control the machine equipment, production process and data parameters used in the production process. The products and technologies of the industrial control industry are very special and belong to the intermediate products. They are reliable, embedded and intelligent industrial computers for other industries.
IPCs often operate in harsh environments, so IPCs are often designed for reinforcement, dust, moisture, corrosion, and radiation. IPCs have high data security requirements and high scalability requirements. Interfaces need to be designed to meet specific external equipment. In most cases, IPCs need to be individually customized to meet demand.
With the deepening of social informatization, the key tasks of key industries will increasingly rely on industrial computers, and IPC-based low-cost industrial control automation is becoming mainstream, and local industrial computer manufacturers are also receiving more attention. Higher and higher. With the rapid development of power metallurgy, petrochemical, environmental protection, transportation, construction and other industries, from digital home set-top boxes, digital TV, to bank teller machines, highway toll collection systems, gas station management, manufacturing production line control, finance, government, The demand for information technology in the national defense and other industries is increasing, and the demand for industrial computer is very large. The development prospect of the industrial computer market is very broad.
At present, the domestic industrial computer supply channels are mainly from Taiwan and mainland China. After years of market killing, foreign products (such as RADISYS, ROCKWELL, INTEL, etc.) are now costly, expensive, and difficult to service. Completely withdraw from the domestic market. Nowadays, the domestic IT industry's R&D and processing technology strength is constantly improving; all kinds of chips and various types of devices and production equipment can be purchased equally in the international market; the portability of software resources can save a lot of manpower and material resources. Under these favorable conditions, some domestic manufacturers seized the opportunity to rise rapidly and gradually squeezed foreign brands out of the domestic industrial control market by taking advantage of local comprehensive competitive advantages. Some enterprises have established a domestic industrial control market with an annual asset growth rate of more than 100%, and have successfully entered the international industrial control market.
In addition to driving the market demand for robots, the demand for industrial computer for production control is also growing. At present, the market capacity of the industrial control industry has reached 90 billion yuan, and under the dual drive of automation and stock market transformation, the growth of this market is far from the ceiling. Judging from the experience of Japan, the development of China's industrial control is far from complete. The project-based market follows macroeconomic fluctuations, while the OEM industry's production equipment properties and conduction amplification characteristics make it more cyclical than the overall industry. Therefore, in the new round of manufacturing recovery, the industrial control industry will usher in another Wave investment opportunities.
