Latest Trends in Industrial Automation
Latest trends in industrial automation include increased use of analytics, growing use of PLCs, PACs, and increased cloud-based supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. These trends will influence the industrial automation control market. Automation industry is moving towards a future of unparalleled productivity spurred by superior energy efficiency, better design and operator visualization, and rigorous safety standards.
Scope of PLC Programming
PLCs are continuously growing and evolving to be the best option for a variety of industrial automation applications. Scope of plc programming is increasing rapidly because of greater programming flexibility and ease, scalability, more memory, smaller sizes, very high-speed (gigabit) Ethernet, and built-in wireless features. PLCs are getting benefits from USB technology and thus make it easier than ever before to get online, program, and monitor your control systems. PLC programming will evolve, and with the availability of smaller micro and mini USB connectors, you can expect to see this option on more of the smaller PLCs. In the future, PLCs will continuously evolve while adapting technology enhancements in communications, hardware, and software.
Latest PLC technology
Latest PLC technology helps to monitor and control distributed server/multi user applications. It also provides a comprehensive and accurate picture of operations, meeting the demands of multiple stakeholders including maintenance, engineering, operations, and production information technology (IT). Reliable and robust functionalities can be obtained using the latest technologies of PLC. These technologies enable you to take advantage of visualization, mobility and other new technologies, meeting various challenges in process, discrete applications and delivering critical visibility when you need it.
