A PROGRAMMABLE LOGIC CONTROLLER (PLC) is an industrial
computer control system that continuously monitors the state of input devices and
makes decisions based upon a custom program to control the state of output devices.
Almost any production line, machine function, or process can be greatly enhanced
using this type of control system. However, the biggest benefit in using a PLC is
the ability to change and replicate the operation or process while collecting and
communicating vital information.
SUPERVISORY CONTROL AND DATA
ACQUISITION, a computer system for gathering and analyzing real time data. SCADA
systems are used to monitor and control a plant or equipment in industries such as
telecommunications, water and waste control, energy, oil and gas refining and
transportation. A SCADA system gathers information, such as where a leak on a
pipeline has occurred, transfers the information back to a central site, alerting
the home station that the leak has occurred, carrying out necessary analysis and
control, such as determining if the leak is critical, and displaying the information
in a logical and organized fashion. SCADA systems were first used in the 1960s.
