Course on Programmable Controllers with Machine Learning at NIT Trichy [Dec 16-20]: Registrations Open

About the Course

Programmable Controllers (PC) range from small modular devices with tens of inputs and outputs (I/O), in a housing integral with the processor, to large rack-mounted modular devices with a count of thousands of I/O, and which are often networked to other PC and SCADA systems.

Programmable Controllers (PC) are often called as Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), Programmable Automation Controllers (PAC) etc. Programmable Controllers are developed with several key industrial attributes. It would tolerate the shop-floor environment, it would support discrete (bit-form) input and output in an easily extensible manner, it would not require years of training to use, and it would permit its operation to be controlled.

As many industrial processes have requirements involving faster response time, digital hardware greatly facilitate building reliable controllers where performance could be traded off for reliability. With the advent of machine learning techniques in place, provisioning of environmental control of the various industrial attributes like temperature and power quality can be efficiently implemented.
