What are PLCs and why they are important?

PLCs are primarily designed to control intricate industrial processes, like running machines and motors. They are easy to program and fully scalable as per the requirement of an operation. They are also used to accumulate data from the systems they control.

Several industries are using programmable logic controllers (PLC) to overhaul the electric operations of an object. In the manufacturing industry, PLCs control the automated machines that are used for the assembly line.

Over the past few years, marine engineers have incorporated PLC programming into commercial ships and yachts. These PLCs used to control various systems like HVAC systems, power management, and CCTV and alarm monitoring.

Why PLCs are important?

Now, many marine connoisseurs and commercial ships are opting for PLCs instead of standard programming controllers. There are several reasons for this swap.

Accuracy and Reliability

Programmable logic controllers (PLC) are precise to a fault. Unlike standard PC equipment, the PLCs failing is very less. If installed properly, PLCs allows you to exactly monitor things such as your alarm, HVAC, and navigation system. This prevents system breakdowns and makes for a smooth charter.

Performance

PLCs can easily perform multiple tasks (more intricate than those of PC systems). It features thousands of steps and can recycle itself within milliseconds. More advanced and innovative PLC systems have the capacity to react to perform tasks instantaneously at record speed.

Minimized maintenance cost

As science and technology are developing exponentially, now, manufacturers and marine electric engineers are developing a less complex PLC system. Most modern PLC controllers don’t possess any hard drives or other moving parts that demand constant maintenance. Now, you can prepare your charter in a better way and can spend less time and money on replacing or updating hard drives.

Simplified Vessel Monitoring

Monitoring your vessel’s operation is important for all onboard. One malfunction can lead to an unpredicted disaster. Modern PLC systems work instantaneously and allow you to see what is going on from all angles. PLC systems possess a power supply, an advanced process for analogue and digital inputs.
