The 4th wave of the industrial revolution is expected to see huge implementation of emerging technologies – and as we move towards this era we can already see how almost everything is being automated. With this in mind, it is imperative for individuals to be able to comprehend the functionality of PLCs and embrace the technology advances in order to not be left behind.
Gone are the days when the automation industry relied heavily – both literally and figuratively, on electromechanical relay systems. Isn’t it great that the industry no longer has to deal with wiring that has been through its fair share of engineering changes and troubleshooting, or a system where wires were added in crisscross, overlapping patterns so that they could take the shortest route and time to make the change over time?
But with all great inventions come the challenge of assimilation and adoption, the same goes for Programmable Logic Controllers. While they may have been around for a while now, PLCs are no longer what they used to be back in the day.
Resolution Circle offers a comprehensive PLC training course, which covers everything from what a standard machine controller was, what it is now, and what it will be during the full landing of the fourth industry 4.0.
