Analog Output Plc

A PLC is a programmable-logic controller - a computer-based electronic system often used to control other devices including machines, hardware components, or other control modules. The PLC system receives input in digital or analog form, processes the input signal based on needs of the device, then transmits the signal to control the output device. In an analog output PLC, the controller outputs voltage or current in order to control equipment. This type of controller is frequently used in industrial environments to control motors, actuators, valves, and pumps.
