PLC Programming Adelaide
A good PLC is the brains behind any quality automation process.
A programmable logic controller (PLC) is a computer program used for the automation of various industrial processes. They monitor industrial processes and carry out logic-based, machine-learning decisions to optimise output, efficiency and safety. PLCs are used in a variety of industrial applications from manufacturing operations to mining.
The difference between an efficient well-running system and a poor system can come down to the quality of the PLC programming.

Out team can provide support across the entire PLC and automation process from conception, design, programming, through to testing and commissioning.
PLCs can be programmed using a range of different languages. Common programming languages include ladder diagrams, sequential function charts (SFC) function block diagrams (FBD), structured test, and instruction list. Each language has its particular advantages and disadvantages and may be more or less suited to a particular system or application. For example, ladder programming requires a programming software like RSLogix 500 and is built with horizontal rungs with two vertical rails representing the electrical connection on relay-logic schematics. Ladder logic is clear, organised and easy to edit online. However, it is not capable of expressing all instructions, making it difficult to program for applications like motion or batching.
At TA Electrical, our PLC technicians have extensive experience working across all major PLC programming languages.
