Read and download free eBook intituled Automating Manufacturing Systems with PLCs in format PDF – : 644 created by .
This is a manuscript for a PLC based control system book that is currently being used for teaching an undergraduate controls course – Manufacturing Controls. The course and book focus on the Allen Bradley family of controllers, thus allowing a deeper topic coverage than is normal in PLC books.
Control systems apply artificial means to change the behavior of a system. The type of control problem often determines the type of control system that can be used. Each controller will be designed to meet a specific objective.
Many control technologies are available for control. Early control systems relied upon mechanisms and electronics to build controlled. Most modern controllers use a computer to achieve control. The most flexible of these controllers is the PLC (Programmable Logic Controller).
