PLC and DCS control systems have traditionally been very different in their capabilities, functionality, and investment requirements, but in recent years the line has started to blur, making it more difficult to decide which type of control system is the right fit. Each type of system has its pros and cons, and numerous factors must be considered and weighted during the decision making process.
During this webinar you will learn:
- Similarities and differences between PLC and DCS control systems
- Pros and cons of each control system
- Factors to consider when choosing between PLC and DCS
