PLC, PAC and Dedicated Controllers

PLC (Programmable Logic Controllers) has become the soul of industrial automation as it is the hardware component directly in contact with the field instruments. It gives the access to control and monitor the array of connected machinery and the software system integrated with it. The PLC system can work with a variety of communication protocols like data conversions, i/o interfacing, signal processing, etc. The system is user programmable, i.e., you can set triggers on different parameters like temperature, liquid level, opening or closing of valves, etc. It can be used in the simplest of devices like garage doors to the complex systems like a powerhouse. The applications and uses of PLC’s are wide and diverse and nature. Be it a residential, commercial, or industrial setting, PLC’s play a huge role in our daily lives. A PLC linked with graphical displays such as an HMI are key components of the broader concept of SCADA. Both these phenomena help propel the applicability of SCADA systems across different industrial sectors. Take your manufacturing processes to the next level with Schneider Electric’s wide range of innovation-driven PLC’s, specially designed to give you greater control in even the harshest and most hostile conditions.
