As Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) continue to advance, the once clear line between a Data Acquisition System (DAQ) and a PLC within a testing environment has considerably blurred. This evolution presents a challenge in the realm of control system architecture development, particularly in determining the optimal systems and equipment that are best controlled by a DAQ, a PLC, or a Building Automation System (BAS).
Following months of development, including processes, drawings, and component integration, your automated assembly machine approaches completion. However, before hitting ‘start,’ essential steps of debugging, checkout, and startup must occur.
In today’s interconnected world, industrial processes and critical infrastructure heavily rely on automation to streamline operations, enhance efficiency, and reduce human error. Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) are at the heart of these automation systems. However, as PLCs become more interconnected and integrated into larger networks, they also become vulnerable to cyber threats. Understanding the significance that PLC cyber security can offer for your organization will help protect PLCs and safeguard critical infrastructure.
Human Machine Interface (HMI) screens find extensive use across various industries for controlling processes and equipment. However, the diversity in HMI design approaches appears to be as abundant as the countless viewpoints one can imagine.
