A PLC, or Programmable Logic Controller, is essentially a special rugged computer used for control systems for industrial/ manufacturing processes. It’s designed to last for a long time in very harsh environments, and is hugely adaptable in the way that its modules can be programmed for specific tasks. As if this wasn’t enough, there’s a plethora of end benefits that could help your company reduce labour and machinery costs, amongst others.
Many of our clients like the flexibility of this modular system, which consists of power supply and rack, CPU (Central Processing Unit) and I/O (Input/ Output) sections. The rack can be modified with various modules, with the brain of the operation being the CPU. Any other given number of programmable modules can be added to this (along with the I/O section) to create a viable system that works to your specific preferences.
For decades, PLC systems have been adopted by many industries to control their processes. At Adbro, we know how flexible this modular approach can be in the right hands, and that is why we have built up a reputation of being specialists in the conversion and upgrading of PLC systems - either from the same vendor, or between vendors. We consult with human operators to find leaner, safer solutions to current process headaches, and devise a slicker, more efficient creature to put in place.
Of course, as we’ve already seen, PLC controls are very flexible. However many clients opt for PLC due to the considerable end benefits of using PLC Controls to automate their processes. For example, increasing throughput from your existing assets can defer capital expenditure and reduce subcontracting and overtime expenses. Also the increased automation reduces human interaction, also saving on labour costs. Other benefits include shorter lead times and lower unit costs to be gained from the reduction of scrapped machinery and the constant need for rework.
At Adbro we understand the concerns of process driven industries. Our deep understanding of PLC technology is of benefit to any type of manufacturing company whether large or small, regardless of industry and sector. We have the capacity to take control of an entire turn-key project, or can concentrate on tricky isolated aspects of a larger project. Of course we will always retro-fit dated systems too, and work on relocation projects as necessary. The key to the Adbro approach is flexibility. We will work with you to design, build and install a PLC System containing specially programmed modules that are best suited for your process. We also provide maintenance and support, and are even available 24 hours a day for emergencies.
