Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)

A digital computer used for control of machinery on factory assembly lines, amusement rides or light fixtures. PLCs are used in many industries and machines. Unlike general-purpose computers, the PLC is designed for multiple inputs and output arrangements, extended temperature ranges, immunity to electrical noise, and resistance to vibration and impact.

Ethernet I/O

A system in which analog and/or digital inputs and outputs are connected to a host computer via some type of Ethernet link. The host computer then accepts data from the inputs and sends out data, which controls the outputs.
