Integration of PLCs and databases for factory information systems

Abstract

It is explained in some detail and in tutorial fashion how PLCs (programmable logic controllers) can be integrated into information systems for day-to-day use on the factory floor. How a PLC is used to collect real-time data and is interfaced to a low-cost supermicrocomputer for production monitoring and FIS (factory information systems) purposes is described. It is pointed out that the whole issue of real-time data collection and control is greatly simplified by the use of PLCs provided that time is not a critical factor. As the PLC program task becomes more complex, the scan time degenerates.
