Global programmable logic controller market:
Technological advances in PLCs

The vendors are offering new features in PLCs by enhancing their
capabilities and extending their application areas. The introduction of
programmable automation controller (PAC) is one of the technological
advances in PLCs. Programmable automation controller is the integration
of a PLC and a PC.

"PACs consist of an open architecture and have a modular design due
to which the PLCs can be used to operate several devices, networks, and
systems. PACs modular design provides easy expansion and removal of
devices and sensors and facilitates easy addition and monitoring of
multiple I/O points,"
says a senior analyst at Technavio for
research on automation.
