PLC Virtual Tutorial: PLC stands for Programmable Logic Controller, which means programmable logic controllers. A PLC device can be considered similar to a computer, but with the difference that it is designed for a specific purpose. PLC devices are a suitable replacement for electric control circuits in all industrial processes. PLC is mostly used to control mechanical or industrial processes such as production lines due to its special properties.
PLC is a combination of hardware and software and works as follows:
The PLC receives electrical information through its inputs. This information can be digital or analog.
The information is processed according to the controller program. This program has already been designed by the user and placed in PLC.
The result is electrically processed information placed in the outputs. Outputs can be analog or digital signals.
PLC Logic Controllers Virtual Training Course Topics:
Important advantages of PLC:
1- Using PLC reduces the volume of the control panel.
2- Using PLC, especially in large processes, causes significant savings in equipment and parts costs.
3- PLCs do not have mechanical depreciation, so in addition to longer life, they will not need periodic repairs and services.
4- PLCs consume less energy.
6- Using a PLC is not limited to a specific process and process and by changing the program, it can be easily used to control other processes.
7- Designing and executing control and control circuits using PLCs is very fast and easy.
8- No special algorithm and logic can be suggested for troubleshooting electromechanical control circuits. This is more experimental, depending on the familiarity of the repairman working with the system. If troubleshooting in PLC-controlled control circuits is done more easily and quickly.
9- PLCs can quickly determine and announce the existence of defects and problems in the controlled process by using special programs.
