Online PLC Programming Test

Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is one of the digital computers which are used for the automation of various electro-mechanical processes in industries. They are useful tools for repeatable processes because they have no mechanical parts and they can also gather information. Programmable Logic Controller requires less space and performs more complex tasks. They are more customizable than mechanical technologies.
