The use of PLCs in the industry has increased because they are improving the efficiency of various processes. They are used to automate various tasks that are repetitive and time-consuming.
An example of a process that is being automated with PLCs is the production line in a factory. For example, if there are human workers on the line, they would have to manually change lengths or widths or materials that need to be produced. The automation would remove them from the process and reduce material wastage as well as delays caused by mistakes made by human workers.
PLCs have also been used in other industries such as construction, energy distribution, agriculture etc., for different purposes such as monitoring production levels, providing heating/cooling during winter/summer seasons through automation etc.
