A programmable logic controller (PLC)

A programmable logic controller (PLC) Electron Service


A programmable logic controller (PLC) is an important component in the automation chain of the entire production cycle. PLC controls and controls production processes from the beginning to the end of the production cycle.

A more precise definition of a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller, PLC) was subsequently defined in the standards EN 61131 (IEC 61131)

There are many types and types of PLCs, but in general, the principle of their operation is very similar to a conventional computer.

Next, we will talk about some specific devices:

Tecnomagnete S.P.A. controllers have the main purpose - control of magnetization and demagnetization of magnetic plates weighing up to 60 tons.

PLC composition:

-Power supply

-Central processor, RAM

-Data storage device


-Communication node

As with any device, the PLC has its own operating life due to 60,000 operating hours (for most manufacturers), which is exactly 5 years, thus their service life is determined. Since the replacement of the device is not always possible, ELECTRON-SERVICE repairs the PLC, thereby saving the cost of equipment maintenance. In this way, the economic feasibility of the enterprise as a whole increases and restraining the growth of prices for the final product.
