PLC process control

PLCs, or Programmable Logic Controllers, are essential in the process and manufacturing industry. A PLC is a computer specially designed to control processes and machines. Although PLC computers have a processor, memory, software and i/o just like a normal PC, they are designed to survive in a rugged industrial environment, unlike a PC.

PLCs receive data from connected sensors (input), process these data and, based on pre-programmed parameters, transmit a certain output for production processes or machines. For example, a PLC can monitor and record machine productivity or production temperature, but can also automatically start and stop processes or trigger an alarm if a machine malfunctions.

As an expert in programming and installing process controls, Hellebrekers controls and supports various brands of PLCs. We also program the required HMIs and supply PLCs equipped with safety technology.
