Instrumentation industry in China to appeal for the safety certification system

With the continuous development of economy and technology, in the “Eleventh Five-Year” period, the instrumentation industry is also showing a rapidly changing the face. The data show that the “Eleventh Five-Year” period, Chinas GDP average annual growth of 11.2%, and instrumentation industry has achieved an average annual rate of 20% of the ultra-high-speed increase does make the instrument very pleased.

instrumentation industry in China achieved rapid development, but many problems still plaguing its development, such as: lack of core technologies, products, reliable and secure enough, corporate R & D lack of motivation and other issues. And these issues will also be the problem to be overcome by the instrumentation industry “12th Five-Year” period.

instrumentation industry has been able to such a rapid development, and no other reason than the following aspects: First, the rapid development of the national economy as a whole, integration of the two further deepened and led to the automation needs of various economic fields, which also brought the prosperity of the instrumentation industry. Specifically, peoples livelihood issues in the implementation of key national projects, food and pharmaceutical safety highlights are in the manufacturing equipment, intelligent, play a crucial role in the instrumentation part of the production process automation and quality supervision and quarantine opportunity. Secondly, the “Eleventh Five-Year” period, the domestic instrumentation technology has significantly improved, resulting in some of the foreign market share is gradually being replaced by the domestic market, increasing domestic market share of the instrumentation. Third, Chinas market demand for instrumentation makes many multinational companies attach great importance to the Chinese market pie, more and more foreign companies setting up factories in China. Prior to the need to import products into the local production, to some extent, expanding the market size of the instrumentation industry.

However, as the international economic environment continued to deteriorate, and the instability of the domestic market environment factors, such as steel, cement, glass and other industrial production overcapacity, the field of wind power, solar energy, rail transport and food have been exposed security risks, resulting in the instrumentation industry is also beginning to show a cooling trend. “12th Five-Year” period, instrumentation industry will be how to develop the industry had to focus of attention.


core technology lack of market competition is worrisome

Although under the guidance of the national macro-control policies, instrumentation industry in China in recent years has been an unprecedented rapid development, however, the lack of core technology, highly sophisticated products still rely on foreign imports and other issues highlight the instrumentation industry in China face a severe test.

in a recent exchange, China Instruments Manufacturers Association consultant Dongjing Chen pointed out to reporters: “In fact, long been to see and instrumentation industries and enterprises. scattered, chaotic situation is an important one of the reasons that hinder the development of the industry. But in times of rapid economic development, market demand for large, small, scattered, chaotic production of the product also can be sold, so companies have no incentive, there is no demand to change this situation. “In fact, the disorderly competition in the market economy is indeed the status of the instrumentation industry, to buy part of the single. However, due to corporate strength is not strong, resulting in serious shortage of investment in technology R & D and manufacturing processes, resulting in domestic products and foreign, there is still a big gap but it is also the main reason.

In this regard, the Fujian Petrochemical Company Limited (hereinafter referred to as “Fujian joint”) instrumentation maintenance manager Tu Sheng Wah told reporters: & ldquo ; the current instrumentation companies with large foreign companies or have a certain gap, especially in product performance. For our petroleum and petrochemical industries, we will pay more attention to the reliability and security products, and foreign technology to better ensure the stability of our production process, thus more likely to choose products and high reliability in the selection of partners foreign enterprises. “

Indeed, the concerns of the Tu Sheng Wah is the most users is worrying about. Development to date, most of the instrumentation industry, technology and product development are still in the “tracking foreign” status, the rare and international renowned enterprises of PK technology, thus the user to select products, even though domestic enterprises, with price The advantages to occupy part of the market, but in front of the large-scale projects, domestic enterprises inadequacy of the technology so that it is inevitable passive in the face of competition, increased the pressure of market competition.

this, Dongjing Chen adviser pointed out that: “The connotation of improvement of Chinese enterprises will become the future a necessary condition to compete with international brands on the same stage.


a number of technology joint endeavor to build the “new look”

Needless to say, With the further development of market economy, the deepening integration of the two industrial users will continue to increase demand for the instrumentation industry. The “12th Five-Year Plan is clearly the equipment manufacturing, green, smart road, which undoubtedly also for the instrumentation industry provides an excellent development opportunities for Chinese enterprises, particularly.

Industry the

Shanghai Automation Instrumentation professor-level senior Miaoxue Qin told reporters that: “In the future,radiator valves. the development of the instrumentation industry will be to provide networking and intelligent transformation.

while in the exchange of and Dongjing Chen adviser, he proposed: sensors and sensor systems, smart instrumentation, control systems and robots will become emphasis on the development of the instrumentation industry. “This is Miao Xueqin experts said the” intelligence “coincide.

look at the “12th Five-Year Plan, the future for a long time, strategic emerging industries will be subject to national policy and vigorously support the new generation of IT industry undoubtedly is one of them. Bound to promote the development of the instrumentation industry as a new generation of information industry as the core of the Internet of Things and cloud computing, and sensors, as the basic components of Things, its future development will certainly received much attention, especially in sensor intelligence technology, sensor networks technology, miniaturization and low power consumption technology, the sensor array and multi-functional, multi-sensor parameters, sensor design, manufacturing and packaging technology, high-end technology will surely lead to the instrumentation industry, some technological revolution, which gave birth to the & ldquo ; intelligent factory building.

In fact, far more than the Internet of Things technology innovation in the communication process and Miao Xueqin, he also told reporters that the future of wireless communications technology and industrial software technology will focus on the development direction of the instrumentation industry. He pointed out that the current development of wireless technology has been able to reach the level of wired technology, wired fieldbus there is always some insurmountable technical defects, through wireless technology able to completely solve the problem, which uses wireless technology to build the site network. Miao Xueqin expected future growth rate of wireless communication technology in the field of industrial automation applications will show a substantial growth of 40% per year. See, the formulation of industrial wireless communication network standard, as well as industrial R & D of wireless communications network authentication technology will also be in the future domestic instrumentation industry areas of concern.

it comes to industrial software platform technology, Miaoxue Qin pointed out that, after the industrial software is divided into industrial automation software and full life cycle management software, The future of these two software will be programmed in a unified engineering platform to run in order to achieve integration, improve programming efficiency, shorten the project cycle, Siemens TIA Portal launch is in line with this technology trend.


Moreover, Dong Jingchen consultant also talked about the motion control, visual recognition technology, as well as servo drives, servo motors, and other industries optimistic. With the continuous development of these technologies, we can easily foresee the future, “the 12th Five-Year” period, the technology of the instrumentation industry will inevitably show the flowers are blooming trend, while the Chinese instrumentation companies casting new industry circumstances have also just around the corner.

security continues to heat up the unified System will become the focus

In recent years, the “safety” this topic seems to always be no lack of news, whether it is a food safety crisis “caused by the dairy industry, production safety accidents” have occurred in rail transportation, petroleum, petrochemical, as well as wind power and other industries, to some extent will be “safe” placed on the cusp.

perhaps precisely because of the repeated attention of the media and the public about the topic of “security” continues to heat up the “security issues” making the “safe production is particularly important during this period. October 14, 2011, the State Council officially issued “safety in production 12 Five-Year Plan”. A column whose main task is to establish enterprises as the mainstay, security, Scientific Research and the combination of market-oriented technological innovation system. For the instrumentation industry, functional safety and security instruments as the internationally popular research topic one was shocked in the instrumentation industry 12 Five-Year Plan “column.

It is understood that the construction projects of large-scale petrochemical projects in China has already provided must be carried out functional safety assessments. And Tu Sheng Wah, from his frequent mention of the safety of instrumentation and reliable this is the best evidence. He pointed out that: “The oil industry as a strategic special industry, safe and reliable is the theme of development, like the design and application of multiple redundant control technology, redundant measurement and its implementing agencies so will be security instrument in the focus of R & D direction of the petroleum and petrochemical industries. “

obviously more than a petroleum and petrochemical industries, security instrument will penetrate into the various fields has become the industry consensus. , Miao Xueqin made it clear that “the function of the system of industrial automation and information security will attach great importance to by all parties. “

Indeed, Chinas product safety certification must rely on the German TV and other certification bodies is clearly not the long term. However, in the current Chinese market is the existence of such a phenomenon as the “security” continues to heat up, businesses are doing their own “safety certification”, which in itself although a good illustration of the Chinese industry users have come to realize the “security” in the production, but to some extent, unified security certification system for the future to establish certain degree of difficulty. Be seen, the future users in China to establish a unified security authentication system would still have a long way to go.

now, functional safety and safety instrumented in a foreign country has long been no stranger, for the Chinese market, they are still a new field, how to develop & ldquo ; security instrument “is still part of the Chinese enterprises is difficult to start. In this regard, Dongjing Chen pointed out that the functional safety certification is not just a quantitative indicators, but throughout the whole process of product design and manufacturing. Its particularity is to require the entire process from R & D at the beginning of every step to meet the functional safety requirements. Safety certification process,casting brass. the product hardware and software must be completely open for certification bodies. Therefore, the certification body, the product is no secret at all. The safety certification of the product features but also all have to rely on foreign institutions, so as soon as possible the establishment of domestic own security certification system both in great need of, and is very urgent.
