A Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) receives important information from a range of either connected sensors or input devices, and process this data to make a logical decision regarding the output action.
PLC systems are ideal for use in the majority of working environments due to their robust design and ability to survive in even the harshest conditions; including severe heat, extreme cold, dust and moisture.
- A PLC can easily perform relay switching tasks,
- Conduct counting, calculate and comparrison of analogue process values,
- Responds to the changes in process parameters within fractions of seconds,
- Offers flexibility to modify the control logic whenever required,
- Improve overall system reliability, whilst also troubleshooting issues more quickly and simply,
PLC control panel systems can either be integrated or modular in design. An integrated or compact PLC consists of several modules in a single case. The manufacturers decide upon the capabilities of this PLC system.
A modular design PLC consists of several components that are plugged into a common rack or bus with extendable capabilites. Modular PLC systems come in a number of different sizes of variable power supply, capabilities and connectivity.
1. Will this PLC system be powered by an AC or DC voltage?
2. How are you going to communicate with the PLC?
3. Is the system fast enough to meet the application requirements?
4. Will the PLC be able to manage the number of inputs and outputs that your application requires?
