- Since the invention of PLCs in 1960, they were an integral part of the manufacturing and process-based industries. As organizations are moving towards intelligent automation & digital transformation, demand for PLC’s has increased exponentially. Traditional Industries which were previously labor-dependent due to product mix or manufacturing complexity are compelled towards intelligent automation to stay relevant in the market competition.
- PLCs are at the forefront of any automation systems due to their ease of use and simple functionality making them ideal candidates for complex automation solutions. While using IoT applications, professional chose PLC system along with control systems like SCADA. PLCs are also well suited for Industry 4.0 due to data analysis, error prediction, and system optimization.
- Industrial applications of PLCs are MUST HAVE course for any student, to learn actual application in the industry. This is where the theoretical knowledge is used for testing in real life scenarios and provides logical and efficient solutions to problems.
Intelligent Automation– Industrial Applications of PLCs
- The course offers a complete knowledge of automation – theory plus practical experiments.
- It reinforces conceptual knowledge by learning on real life test fixtures covering a variety of actual use cases.
- It enables students to learn and appreciate system approach of integrated solution and optimization, which is the goal of any industrial process.
