Soft-Logic: A Guide to Using a Personal Computer as a Programmable Logic Controller
The next generation of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) is here: software-based logic control (Soft-Logic) systems on PCs. They're nonproprietary, cheaper, quickly upgradable, easier to use, and often more robust than traditional PLCs. And this practical, hands-on guide shows you how to put one together, from design to implementation. It also introduces Fuzzy Logic, discusses DeviceNet and other communications schemes, and contains more than 30 real-world Soft-Logic applications.
