Paper Title - Initial Face of Automation “Programmable Logic Controller”
This paper presented on Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is to give insights on hardware of PLC. Control
engineering has evolved over time. In the past humans were the main methods for controlling a system. More recently
electricity has been used for control and early electrical control was based on relays. These relays allow power to be
switched on and off without a mechanical switch. It is common to use relays to make simple logical control decisions. The
development of low cost computer has brought the most recent revolution, the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). The
advent of the PLC began in the 1970s, and has become the most common choice for manufacturing controls. PLCs have
been gaining popularity on the factory floor and will probably remain predominant for some time to come. Programmable
logic controllers were first created to serve the automobile industry, and the first programmable logic controller project was
developed in 1968 for General Motors to replace hard-wired relay systems with an electronic controller.
