A PLC is responsible for controlling all the processes that take place in an industrial automation ecosystem. In order to be able to control, the PLC must be programmed with information about the processes that we want to automate.

PLC Benefits

In addition, automating processes, brings considerable advances to a factory's production process:

✓ Ensure product quality.
✓ Eliminate waste: improve sustainability.
✓ Avoid safety-related accidents.

Within IoT and Industry 4.0, programmable controllers are made to communicate data via web browser, connect to databases via SQL and even to cloud data via MQTT".

What are the phases of PLC programming in a project?

1. Offline programming

Based on the documentation provided, we prepare in our offices the programs that will later be loaded into the installation. Once the online programming is done, the debugging of this code is done by means of Virtual commissioning.

2. Interface programming

HMI, or “human machine interface”, is a screen with a simple and intuitive design for the operator to know the status of the machine and to intervene more efficiently if necessary.

3. Virtual commissioning

Virtual commissioning is executed to be able to debug the PLC code and the user screens. The different operating modes of the installation are also tested.

4. On-site implementation

The relevant tests are carried out from the start of the machine assembly until its final acceptance and delivery to the customer.

5. Production control systems

Programming systems such as Scadas, MES, between others, to manage and control the entire production process from a single screen.

6. Production support, operator training and documentation

From the start of production until the machine meets the expectations for which it was designed.
