  • History of the PLC
    The PLC or Programmable Logic Controller has revolutionized the automation industry. Today PLCs can be found in everything from factory equipment to vending machines, but prior to New Year's Day 1968 the programmable controller didn't even exist. Instead what existed was a unique set of challenges
  • Understanding Software PLC Systems
    The software PLC (soft PLC) was introduced with the aim of enhancing interoperability and compatibility among various industrial systems and products. It is a digital computer that facilitates electromechanical process automation, and a control mechanism that is used to enhance production lines
  • Key Components of a Soft PLC
    A Soft PLC is software that enables you to transform a conventional PC into an industrial programmable logic controller. By using the a Soft PLC, industrial automation engineers can efficiently manage and deploy robotics controller applications that execute such functions as motion control
  • Understanding the Basics of PLCs
    PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers) are mainly used in industrial and commercial applications. Industries rely on a wide range of machines that are complex to operate. Every machine has parts that are operated by motors, pneumatics or hydraulic drive systems. Sensors are used to sense when
  • PLC Package Handling
    PLCs play a major role when it comes to material or package handling operations. Conveyors, motors, drives, object detection sensors and of course controllers are used quite often when it comes to delivering your suitcase to the right airplane or getting the laptop you ordered to the right delivery
  • Understanding Soft PLC Features and Requirements
    Soft PLC is a software technology designed to turn an embedded computer into a fully functional and programmable logic controller, also known as a PLC. It combines PLCs' discrete, PID and analog I/O control with high performing computer networking, data handling, and computational capabilities
  • 3 Benefits of Software-based PLCs
    Let's be honest: most available programmable logic controllers (PLCs) are hard to work with. They are not easily programmable, as they do not support common programming languages, only the manufacturer's. This makes it difficult for programmers and users to make upgrades and configure
  • What's a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller)?
    A PLC (programmable logic controller) is a digital computer used for industrial automation to automate different electro-mechanical processes. It was introduced to eliminate issues such as high power consumption that arose from the use of relays to control manufacturing processes. It consists
