PLC and PLC applications
A PLC (programmable logic controller) is essentially a computer adapted to the needs of industry. Its inputs and outputs are not designed for humans, but for use in the control of machines. Machine and operator interact solely by way of limit switches, momentary-contact switches or photoelectric switches.
Self-contained PLC module for basic exercises; also suitable for IA 210 and RT 800.
PLC application: materials handling process
Basic system of automation: transporting and sorting workpieces.
PLC application: mixing processe
Experiments using PLC to control discontinuous mixing processes.
