Download the free programmable logic controller book to study and learn about the basics of PLC programming.
Many control technologies are available for control. Early control systems relied upon mechanisms and analog electronics to build controlled.
Most modern controllers use a computer or microcontrollers to achieve control. The most flexible of these controllers is the PLC (Programmable Logic Controller).
