It is now over 25 years since compact programmable logic controllers (PLC’s) were launched. uniFARM have partnered with Mitsubishi Electric, a world market leader, to design a compact affordable PLC specifically designed for the Agriculture, Brewery and Food sectors
The Compact PLC is the new flagship line which sets new standards, delivering performance that was formerly the exclusive domain of larger control systems in a compact package. PLC Automation Control Panels have an edge over conventional relay based systems. PLC Control Panels we manufacture are highly capable of giving higher output at less power consumption
Compact controllers have opened up new perspectives in Agricultural and industrial automation due to their compact dimensions and low cost. uniFARM can provide PLCs from small I/O application to the complex I/O systems. We have developed communication software’s for remote communication of the PLC Panels.
Small PLC is a mini-sized PLC that is designed as compact and robust unit mounted or placed beside the equipment to be controlled. This type of PLC is used for replacing hard-wired relay logics, counters, timers, etc. This PLC I/O module expandability is limited for one or two modules and it uses logic instruction list or relay ladder language as programming language.
From the silo to mill to spent grain controls, we can automate the weighing, milling, and batching of your ingredients to your exact specifications.
Load cells: Load cell mounts are available many sizes . Suspension load cells are also available,
Also Flow Scales and Automated batching systems, labelling solutions
Application of PLC
The above figure shows the operation of a PLC for a simple process control application wherein the conveyor belt operation, the number of boxes’ measurement and other control operations are performed by the PLC.
Here, the position sensor and other sensor outputs are connected to the input module of the PLC, and from the output modules – a motor is controlled.
When the sensors are activated, then the CPU of the PLC reads the inputs, and correspondingly processes them according to the program and produces the outputs to operate the motor so that the conveyor is controlled.
