10+ Practical Examples of Open Loop Control System


There are two types of control systems - 1. Open Loop Control System and 2. Closed Loop Control System. In the previous article, we have known the practical examples of closed loop control systems. In this article, we are going to know practical examples of Open Loop Control System. These open loop control system examples will help you to better understand the topic.

Open loop control system is that where output depends upon the input only and input does not depend upon the output means there is no feedback from output to input. Open loop control system is a manual and one-way controlling system. But it is very simple in construction and cheaper.

Open Loop Control System Examples are,
  1. Motor Starter
  2. TV Remote
  3. Calling Bell
  4. Light Switch
  5. Hand Dryer
  6. Volume Controller
  7. Automatic Sliding Door
  8. Trimmer
  9. Inject Printers
  10. Vehicle Horn
  11. Bread Toaster




Motor Starter


The main function of a motor starter is to start the motor safely without any fluctuation, overcurrent, etc. It is a manual operation and open control system. When you press the On Button the motor will be turned on and when you press the Off button the motor will be turned off.

Example of open loop control system: Motor starter


TV Remote


A TV remote is an example of open control system. When we press any button on the remote, it will send a signal to the TV and make some changes, but the remote not getting any signal from the TV whether any changes happens or not.




Calling Bell


When you press the button of the calling bell, it will ring for a few seconds which is already set in the calling bell. Once the bell stops ringing, again you need to press the button to ring again.

Light Switch


The light switch is also an example of open loop control system. When you turned on the switch, the light will glow and when you turned off the switch the light will be off.

Hand Dryer


Hand Dryer generally have an IR sensor. So when you put the hand in front of the sensor, the hot air flow will come towards your hand and when you remove your hand from the sensor the hot air flow also be stopped.




Volume Controller


Volume control in any audio amplifier or audio system is also an example of open loop control system because when you rotate the potentiometer at that time only volume will vary.

Automatic Sliding Door


The automatic sliding door will open when anyone goes to near the door otherwise it will close again. Also, note that after opening the door it will again close after few seconds which is already set in the controller.

Inject Printer


Inject printer will start printing when we give a command from the printer. The number of pages, sides, sizes all commands should be given before printing from the computer. After that, the printer will print automatically as per the command.

Vehicle Horn


The vehicle horn is also an example of open loop control system. When the driver presses the switch, the horn will ring for a few seconds and turned off automatically.
