The company claims that Vision700 does not compromise on the cost, feel, or performance of the PLC. Vision700 offers digital, high speed, and analog I/O, apart from PT100/thermocouple and weight/pressure measurement.
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is rising technological advances in PLCs. PLCs have been serving the automation market for more than 40 years, and since 2016 the global PLC market is approaching its maturity. However, the recent advances in PLCs have greatly increased their capabilities in industrial automation solutions. The introduction of Programmable Automation Controller (PAC), is aiding the market in terms of better operability due to its advanced automation handling capabilities.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is growing preference for industrial PCs and DCS systems. In recent times, the industrial sectors are aiming to implement technology that helps raise their productivity, coupled with low levels of floor occupancy. New-generation industrial PCs are based on open embedded operating systems and combine the functions of a PLC and an operator panel into one unit. These features make industrial PCs a popular choice in sectors that require real-time information on the functioning of machine parts and productivity. For instance, the integration of dual RAID controller in a PC automatically reflects the data stored in the hard disks of interconnected devices.
