PLC Digital Report
Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) represent the logic (decision) part of the control loop of sense, decide, and actuate. As we know, PLCs aren’t the only option for making decisions in a control loop, but they are likely why you’re here. This digital report focuses on PLC programming, support-focused enterprise controls, and how they compare against proprietary robotic controls. Learn more.
