What is programmable logic controller (PLC)?

A programmable logic controller (PLC) refers to a ruggedized digital computer that processes input signals and executes control logic based on a pre-programmed set of instructions. It comprises compact, modular, and rack-mount PLCs, which are used in large-scale systems where multiple rack-mounted central processing units (CPUs) can be connected. It also consists of safety and soft PLCs, which run on standard computers, offering flexibility but with some limitations in ruggedness compared to hardware PLCs. It produces output signals to automate and control various industrial processes. It often supports various communication protocols for data exchange with other devices and systems, such as human-machine interfaces (HMIs) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. It is reliable and can operate continuously in harsh industrial environments, reducing downtime and maintenance costs. It can be easily reprogrammed to adapt to changes in production requirements, making it ideal for dynamic manufacturing processes. It optimizes processes, reduces waste, and improves product quality, leading to cost savings and increased productivity.
