What Are Programmable Logic Controllers?
A programmable logic controller is a tiny computer used in industrial automation to control and monitor processes. It consists of a microprocessor and a number of input & output (I/O) interfaces. Input devices such as sensors, actuators and other control components acquire data and the controller transmits operating instructions through its control outputs. Its primary purpose is to control a system’s functions using the logic programmed into it.
Programmable controllers are designed to be flexible and adaptable to a wide range of industrial applications, and they can be customized to meet specific needs through software programming. They provide a reliable and efficient solution for industrial automation, offering the ability to control complex processes and improve process efficiency.
Programmable controllers can be programmed to perform various tasks using ladder logic or other programming languages, and can be integrated with other components such as sensors, actuators, and human-machine interfaces (HMIs) to form a complete control system. They are widely used in industries such as automotive, packaging, food & beverage, medical & pharmaceutical, semiconductors, mobile vehicles, and many others.
Programmable Controllers Offered by Advance Electrical
Programmable controllers serve as the brain of an automation system, adjusting or maintaining desired outputs of specific processes within a desired range and providing highly dependable control of industrial automation processes.
At Advance Electrical & Automation, we offer the following controllers:
Recorders are programmable devices used to record process information in industrial applications. They provide a permanent record of process values, such as temperature, voltage, and current, and can be programmed for functions like data logging, trend analysis, and alarms. Advance Electrical offers both paper and touchscreen recorders in both 24VDC and 100-240VAC, and with various alarm output options.
Sensor controllers are programmable devices that manage sensors in industrial processes. They provide precise control over sensors like temperature sensors, pressure sensors, and flow sensors and can be programmed for functions such as sensor calibration, auto-tuning, and fault detection.Two types of sensor controllers are available from Advance Electrical: the high performance controller and the general-purpose plug-in controller.
Indicators are programmable devices used to display real-time process information in industrial operations. They provide a visual representation of values such as temperature, voltage, and current and can be programmed for functions such as min/max display, peak hold, and averaging. We offer bar graph and digital indicators with multiple panel lengths.
Human-Machine Interfaces (HMIs) are programmable devices that serve as operator interfaces in industrial processes. They provide real-time display of process information and control over process parameters and can be programmed for functions such as alarms, trending, and data logging. Advance Electrical offers both graphic display only, and logic HMIs.
A counter is a control device used for counting events in industrial operations. They provide accurate and dependable counting, and can be programmed for functions such as counting up or down, batch counting, and totalizing. We offer counters in various sizes and available outputs.
Timers are programmable devices that control time-based operations in industrial processes. They offer precise timing control and can be programmed for functions such as on-delay, off-delay, one-shot, and cyclic timers. Most of our timers can be used in timing and counting ambient temperature and voltage. They are available in both digital and analog types.
A temperature controller is a device used to regulate the temperature of a heater or other equipment in industrial processes by comparing a sensor signal to a set point and calculating the difference between the two values. They are designed to maintain set temperatures with precision and consistency, ensuring that temperature-sensitive operations are performed accurately. We have an extensive selection of temperature controllers varying in size, input voltages, and outputs.
A digital panel meter is used to display real-time process information in industrial applications. They provide a visual representation of values such as temperature, voltage, and current and can be programmed for functions such as min/max display, peak hold, and averaging.
Industrial PCs are programmable devices used to control and monitor industrial operations. They offer a flexible and powerful solution for process control and monitoring and can be programmed for functions such as data logging, trend analysis, and alarms. The Industrial PCs we offer contain high-speed processing power and wide viewing angles with true color display. They also support various connection interfaces including HDMI, USB, VGA, Audio, Serial, Ethernet, and more.
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) are devices used to control and monitor industrial processes. They provide a flexible and reliable way to automate processes and can be programmed for functions such as process control, fault detection, and data logging. Advance Electrical offers PLCs with various I/O modules and capabilities.
