A programmable logic controller (PLC) is an industrial computer that has been ruggedized and adapted for the control of manufacturing processes, such as assembly lines, machinery, robotic devices, or any activity that requires high reliability, ease of programming, and process fault diagnosis.
Productivity-enhancing control panels for Industrial Automation applications include robust standard operator panels, high-end multi-touch human-machine interfaces, and LCD touch screens that aid in intuitive visualization and operation of Human Machine Interface applications.
Servo motors are used in closed-loop, flying shear, coordinated control applications requiring precise position, torque, velocity, and acceleration control. Stepper motors are used in open-loop position control applications
Inputs and outputs, also known as I/O, can be connected on a variety of communication platforms (Ethernet IP, EtherCat, Profibus, Profinet, DeviceNet, etc.), and are typically used with distributed control instead of in the panel, on the rack IO.
Photoelectric and proximity sensors, general-purpose and specialty type sensors. Machine vision hardware inclusive of industrial cameras, vision systems, and smart and PC-based cameras that are scalable across software platforms.
Cordsets are used to connect sensors and actuators for fast replacement situations. Standard M12 is also available in M8 and Mini-change sizes.
PLC, HMI, Motion, and SCADA software for programming, monitoring troubleshooting, communication cables, power cables, I/O blocks, etc.
