PLC Power: Industrial PLC Programming
PLC I/O devices are compatible with industrial controls. As we’ve written, “PLCs can be adapted for a number of automation tasks.”
These tasks include processes for “assembly lines, amusement rides, and even light fixtures. This makes for a versatile tool that can be highly customized to fit production needs.”
PLCs are also what’s called ruggedized computers.
This means they’ve been designed, engineered, and manufactured specifically to function in all sorts of industrial conditions.
PLCs operate within industrial and manufacturing environments.
They are built to withstand strong vibrations, extremes of temperature, humidity, and other harsh conditions.
The PLC’s effect on manufacturing automation can’t be overstated.
It is in many ways not only the brains but the heartbeat behind modern manufacturing and automation.
Where programmable automation and manufacturing processes are in place, a PLC manages the workload. What’s more, industrial PLC setup, maintenance, and repair require PLC technicians to manage that workload.
