A PLC is an industrial computer designed for the control of manufacturing processes or robotic devices where reliable control, simple programming and fault diagnosis is necessary.
The PLC receives information from connected sensors and input devices, processes the data, and triggers outputs based on pre-programmed parameters. Depending on the input devices, a PLC can monitor and record data such as machine productivity or temperature, it can start and stop processes and generate alarms if a machine fails plus much more.
PLCs come in a wide range of variants from basic small-scale units with a limited range of input/outputs and restricted ability to units with a built-in HMI and computer interface to allow you to program directly into the PLC instead of using software and a remote PC.
Kempston Controls stocks a wide range of PLCs from market leading manufacturers such as Omron, Siemens, Allen Bradley and others designed to suit many applications. Give our dedicated sales team a call on +44 (0) 1933 411411 or use the contact form above to discuss your PLC requirements.
