Open and closed-loop logic control, as well as monitoring of manufacturing and production steps, are fundamental aspects of automation technology. They’re used to organize production processes reliably, safely, quickly, and cost-effectively. Control technology is used as a basic function in a variety of applications and industry sectors – at the same time, it plays a significant role in Industry 4.0/Industrial Internet of Things.
Receiving signals and sending commands – that’s the concept and the principle of logic control for production steps. Ever since the industrial revolution, people have been pursuing the goal of monitoring manufacturing and production steps and organizing them safely and efficiently.
From manual control to mechanical, electrical, and programmable logic controllers, control technology is the starting point of automation technology and the companion to Industry 4.0/Industrial Internet of Things.
Whether it’s the automotive, pharmaceutical, or food industry – control and PLC technology constitutes the central intelligence of all production systems and is therefore used in a wide range of industry sectors.
