A Programmable Logic Controller Is A Device Used In Industrial Settings To Control Equipment
Programmable Logic Controller

Interconnectivity is becoming an increasingly important component of today's manufacturing facilities. Manufacturers must build a way to communicate with their equipment and automate operations with little human intervention as they continue to invest in smart devices such as Industrial IoT, network-connected machinery, and similar digital tools. Individual equipment and control systems are directly connected to each other in a more traditional manufacturing scenario. Yet, this type of configuration might be more complex and difficult to administer.

Modern manufacturers overcome this obstacle by installing and employing Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). Manufacturers connect equipment to PLCs rather than physically connecting each machine or piece of equipment to relevant control systems, resulting in a more integrated production process control.
