What is PLC/SPS?
A programmable logic controller (PLC, SPS = “Speicherprogrammierbare Steuerung”) or programmable controller is a digital computer used for automation of electromechanical processes, such as control of machinery on factory assembly lines, control of amusement rides, or control of lighting fixtures. PLCs are used in many different industries and machines such as packaging and semiconductor machines. Unlike general-purpose computers, the PLC is designed for multiple inputs and output arrangements, extended temperature ranges, immunity to electrical noise, and resistance to vibration and impact. Programs to control machine operation are typically stored in battery-backed or non-volatile memory. A PLC is an example of a real time system since output results must be produced in response to input conditions within a bounded time, otherwise unintended operation will result.

Why do we need a visualizing system then?
The visualizing systems shows the plant in a graphical way. Like with a normal computer program you can control processes at the plant easily with your computer mouse or keyboard in the office or even from home via remote connection. It is not necessary to go directly to the different machines to control them. Error messages or protocols can be read on the computer screen immediately.
