Since PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) was first introduced in 1970, it has been in common usage in various industries such as machine and process controls. Designed with the latest microprocessor and electronic circuitry, today’s compact PLCs features high reliability, high performance, high speed and networking. The use of PLCs in automated
production lines enhances system reliability, product quality, information sharing, efficiency and flexibility and thus reduces costs.
PLC-100 is a self-contained trainer which consists of a FATEK PLC main unit and commonly used I/O devices for simulation. It provides students with a thorough understanding of the theories and applications of programmable logic controllers. The trainer enables students to learn step by step from the fundamentals of PLC to more advanced controls used in industry.
