Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) technology is not recent in the industry, and is still in usage at a great extent by manufacturing companies. Programmable Logic Controller smoothens the mechanical automation process in manufacturing units and construction buildings. Due to its dynamic development, sequential control, counters and timers, ease of programming, reliable controlling capabilities, and ease of hardware usage; Programmable Logic Controllers are also utilized in various control system areas.
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) in industrial automation supports machine movement on an assembly line. Programmable Logic Controllers has been an integral part of automation and control systems across many industries, and is expected to remain the same even with the advent of new technologies such as Process Automation Controllers (PACs) and other advanced computer-based controls. Programmable Logic Controllers are significantly applied in industries, and helps in eliminating hard wiring associated with conventional relay control circuits, enhancing the productivity. Constant emphasis on product innovation in industrial automation has linked the gap between functional capabilities of discrete control system and Programmable Logic Controller (PLC).
