What is PLC-Based Open Loop Control?

PLC-based process control systems are often used for manually operated, open-loop control applications. This enables the operator to manually set and adjust process control instruments to control the system’s process variable or variables. During manual control of a diaphragm-actuator valve, the user enters a value using the HMI panel to open the diaphragm-actuator valve. The PLC reads the value from the HMI panel. The PLC’s program causes an analog output to signal to open or close the valve by the appropriate amount. A diaphragm-actuator valve is a proportional valve. This means it will open or close by a percentage that matches the change in full range percentage of the PLC’s analog output.
