A combination of electrical and mechanical engineering, the processes and procedures are drawn from either stream. It focuses solely on the interaction of electrical and mechanical systems and how the systems interact with each other.
What are electromechanical components?
Electromechanical components use an electrical current to create a magnetic field which causes a physical movement. All types of relays and switches are present in this category.
What are the different types of electromechanical devices?
There are a few commonly known devices, and they include:
These two are combined with mechanical parts to provide actuation or movement. Solenoids, for example, can be used as actuators in vending machines, cash registers, and photocopiers.
Industrial applications of electromechanical components
These vary, but a common industrial application of automation systems for water resources exploitation projects includes:
Wastewater treatment plants
Other applications include remote monitoring and remote control systems using RADIO GSM modems; modernization of industrial units with PLC.
