PLC Discrete Outputs - Control Automation

January 05, 2023 by David Peterson
Programmable Logic Controllers, or PLCs, are designed to receive signals and influence load devices automatically. Learn how to connect and program discrete output devices like solenoids, relays, and lights.

Programmable Logic Control (PLC) systems are the core of most industrial control systems that drive modern manufacturing. In this Control Automation video, we explore the wiring and programming of basic discrete output signals to drive devices like relays, lights, or solenoid valves.
