Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)
A programmable logic controller (PLC), or programmable controller is an industrial digital computer which has been ruggedized and adapted for the control of manufacturing processes such as assembly lines and robotic devices or any activity requiring high reliability control, ease of programming and process fault diagnosis.
PLCs are required to continuously log real-time system data and capture the system state data automatically on power loss or system failure. This is required to enable efficient and safe factory operation as well as advancements like predictive analytics and preventive maintenance.
