Micro programmable logic controller (micro PLC)
Ultimate control for building automation and home automation designs
Automating processes is a PLC’s primary objective. To do so, it monitors and interprets different variables so it can control and actuate external systems. Responsible for basic controls in a host of general applications, micro PLCs are under mounting pressure to be both user-friendly and cost-effective. Additional challenges micro PLCs currently face: sensing, controlling, driving and communicating under harsh conditions and in limited space. Altogether, this places high demands on microcontrollers in micro PLC applications.
