Typical usage of PLC controllers

Programmable logic controllers (PLC) are a basic component of controlling systems used in Industry 4.0 solutions, and so are HMI panels (Human Machine Interface) and SCADA systems (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) used by operators in order to control and supervise the assembly process. The functionalities and efficiency of controllers is constantly being improved, which allows for complex implementation of Industry 4.0 solutions. Due to the development of technology and the complexity of systems monitoring their reliability, identifying potential outages or predicting downtimes should be considered crucial aspects of every industrial and manufacturing process.

Due to the aforementioned changes, the need for the expert knowledge of engineers who have expertise not only in a given industry, but also particular trends in a respective branch, to implement the best possible bespoke solutions for a particular organization. PLC controllers are used in:

  • industry,
  • manufacturing,
  • power industry,
  • building automation,
  • food industry,
  • chemical industry,
  • environmental protection.

The biggest challenges in the PLC & HMI area

  • Possibility of integrating PLC controllers with HMI operation panels and SCADA systems.
  • Standalone machines once disconnected from the HMI panel, provided that the operational security of the process is not affected.
  • Mobile applications used to control machines using mobile devices and tablets.
  • Solutions related to wireless transmission of data between machines or remote access to controllers via Ethernet and Internet, including remote diagnosis and service.
  • Cybersecurity.
