Programmable Logic Controllers

A programmable logic controller is a digital computer used when electro-mechanical processes are being automated. Processes included here are the control of machinery on amusement rides, lighting fixtures, as well as factory assembly lines. Industrial programmable logic controllers are  manufactured with the aim of withstanding any vibration or impact, resisting extreme temperatures, and offering immunity to any kind of electrical noise. It consists of a number of input and output arrangements.

Industrial programmable logic controllers are what are called a real time system, meaning output results are produced in response to input conditions within a specific period of time; if not, unintended operation will most likely occur.

Programme logic controllers:

  • Have the facility for extensive input/output arrangements
  • Can withstand severe conditions which include dust, moisture, heat and cold
  • The input/output arrangements connect the industrial programmable logic controller to sensors and actuators, which subsequently allows it to read the positions of complex positioning systems, analog process variables, like pressure and temperature, as well as limit switches.
