Since PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) was first introduced in 1970, it has been widely applied to various industrial uses such as machine and process controls. Designed with the latest microprocessor and electronic circuitry, today’s compact-size PLCs provide the features of 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.
