HOT TOPIC OVERVIEW

Programmable Logic Controllers


Since first finding commercial success in the early 1970s, PLCs (programmable logic controllers) have been at heart of many production lines, machine functions and processes. An industrial computer system that continuously monitors the state of input devices and makes decisions to control the state of output devices, a PLC can greatly enhance any application. Highly modular, a PLC enables different types of input and output devices to be combined to best suit the application. It also has the ability to change and replicate a process while collecting and communicating resulting data.
