ABSTRACT
Before the advent of solid state logic circuits, logical control systems were designed and built exclusively using electromechanical relays. The purpose of PLC was to directly replace electromechanical relays as logic elements, substituting instead a solid state digital computer with a stored program to emulate the interconnection of many relays to perform certain logical tasks. A programmable logic controller (PLC) or programmable controller is a digital computer used for automation of electromechanical processes, such as control of machinery on factory assembly lines, amusement rides, or lighting fixtures. PLCs are used in many industries and machines The PLC will operate any system that has output devices that can go ON and OFF. It can also operate any system with variable outputs, the PLC can be operated input side ON/OFF devices or variable input devices.
