The Advantages of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) in a Manufacturing Setting

I’ve worked in numerous plants and visited dozens of others. All of them had something in common: their control systems were completely driven by Programmable Logic Controllers or more commonly called PLCs. Although these systems are extremely common in manufacturing, you don’t see them elsewhere. It is thus very interesting to discuss some of [...]
