PLC Operation, Programming, Troubleshooting and Maintenance

PLC Operation, Programming, Troubleshooting and Maintenance 

Bandung | 05 – 07 September 2016 | Fee: at proposal



A Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is a digital computer used for automation of electromechanical processes, and PLCs are used in many industries and machines such as in Oil & Gas Industry. The oil and gas industry’s need to improve efficiency and control costs, that’s why most petroleum production facilities using the programmable logic controllers. The PLC is established with a goal to monitor and control oilfield sites distributed over extensive areas.  Using automated machine interfaces, just one computer can start or stop the pumps in your pump station. In the meantime, you’ll have all the measurements and readings in your computer, making it possible for you to monitor everything that goes on outside. You can also use it to control voltage, power and all the electrical parameters you need. A PLC was designed to run its one program at a very fast speed, only branching out from within the main bit when an event happens. Events that happen in real time. The ability to respond very quickly to any of the events under its control via an input.
