What is the definition of "PLC"?

A Programmable Logic Controller, or PLC, is a ruggedized computer used for industrial automation. These controllers can automate a specific process, machine function, or even an entire production line.

Effect of PCI Devices on Automation Systems

Industry 4.0 is changing systems architecture across all domains in industrial automation. Upcoming edge computing architectures use virtualization for scaling dedicated applications with deterministic key performance indicators (KPIs) on a heterogeneous operating systems.

Understanding the Basics of PLCs

PLCs are special computers designed to control industrial processes and machines. Software PLCs offer great communications functionality through communicating with other computer equipment or controllers.
