Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)

The movement of machinery on an assembly line, is done through the use of small computers called programmable logic controllers (plcs). A plc contains a programmable microprocessor that is programmed using a specialized computer language. Typically, the program for the automated process is written on a computer and then is downloaded onto the programmable logic controller directly through a cable connection. The program is stored in the programmable logic controller in non-volatile memory.
