A programmable logic controller, PLC or programmable controller is a digital computer used for automation of typically industrial electromechanical processes, such as control of machinery on factory assembly lines.
EU Automation offers a comprehensive supply of parts for PLC systems, servo drives, HMIs, displays, motors, CNC machine tool systems and robots, comprising all of the major manufacturers.
HMI stands for Human Machine Interface. This is the interface between the operator and the controller.
Encoders are electrical sensors which measure rotation by counting the number and timing of pulses generated by the encoder.
Numerical control (NC) is the automation of machine tools that are operated by precisely programmed commands encoded on a storage medium.
Parts used in automatic control - the use of various control systems for operating equipment such as machinery, processes typically in factories
Safety automation parts are used in safety systems to protect human, plant and environment in the case a process goes beyond the control margins.
Robotics is the branch of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science that deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots, as well as computer systems for their control.
A servo drive receives a command signal from a control system, amplifies the signal, and transmits electric current to a servo motor. They can be used in CNC machining, factory automation, and robotics, among other uses.
