A PLC or Programmable Logic Controller is a rugged digital computer designed to operate in harsh conditions where it may be exposed to dust, moisture, extreme temperatures, and strong vibrations. PLCs are ideal for industrial automations
and other electromechanical control processes. They are used in the control processes of robotic devices, assembly lines, and other manufacturing processes.
The PLCs use a range of accessories to achieve its optimal functions. These include sensors, actuators, batteries
, memory units, CPU, input and output modules, and cabling among others. The sensors provide real-time information about temperatures, water levels, and other data. Actuators are connected through output lines to initiate actions such as opening or closing a valve in response to prompting from the CPU.
Modern PLCs have a Human Machine Interface or HMI devices such as a touch screen panel or keypad to facilitate real-time interaction with users. If you have questions on our range of PLC
