What are Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs)?

Programmable Logic Controllers (also called PLCs) are industrial computers. They provide a means of controlling machines and other industrial applications with a computer instead of using hard wired devices, such as relay coils and contacts. PLCs can control any number of industrial applications, including robots, environmental control in buildings, assembly machines, security systems, and automatic transfer lines.

What are Advantages of a PLC?

The PLC gives industry the power, speed, and flexibility of a computer. By replacing mechanical components with a PLC, the control of a process becomes faster, cheaper, and therefore, more efficient. The PLC is a better choice than relays or a standard computer for several reasons. These include:

  • Less Space – A PLC requires much less space than a standard computers or a relay panel that could do the same job.
  • Lower Cost – A PLC can cost as little as four or five relays, but is can replace hundreds of relays.
  • Resistant to the Environment – A PLC’s casing is industrially hardened to withstand the harsh environment of a factory.
  • Direct Interface – Standard computers require a complex and limited system to interface to real world components, while a PLC can be directly wired to these components.
  • Easy Programming – PLCs most often use a programming language called ladder logic. This language is based on industrial standard symbology used in hard-wired relay systems.
  • Flexibility – PLC programming can be changed much more quickly than hard wired relays and a PLC requires few (if any) component changes.
