Introduction to the Industrial Automation Using Schneider Electric M340 PLC work Bench

Authors(1) :-Deepa V Bolanavar

Industrial automation is the use of control systems, such as computers or robots, and information technologies for handling different processes and machineries in an industry to replace a human being. It is the second step beyond mechanization in the scope of industrialization.This paper describes aboutSchneider Electric M340 PLC which is one of the most famous PLC in the world.Launched as one of the most innovative Programmable Logic Controllers developed to date, Modicon M340 continues to be perceived as a model basis of a modern-day automation platform, garnering recognition for its robust quality and high-end capabilities, including improved performance, compliance with the latest networking standards, and operational cost-efficiency. Designed for a widely range of process and machine management, it finds perfectly his place in numerous segments such as the Food & Beverage etc.
