ACC Automation

What a difference a year makes! Social distancing, mask-wearing, hygiene, social circles, etc are just a few of the terms we hear every day in this Covid-19 world. Video conferencing with Zoom, Teams, and Google Meet are the norm in business today. Information is knowledge, and everyone wants to be able to see, control, and summarize production data on a regular basis. Technologies are merging and communicating like never before. What was impossible is now possible for the industrial plant floor. We are looking forward to the New Year and new possibilities for implementing your control solution.

Each year we like to take a few minutes and reflect on the past, current, and future of ACC Automation. You have helped us to build the site that you see today through questions, comments, and suggestions. Thank you. Keep on Reading!

Click PLC PID Instruction and Autotuning

A PID (Proportional, Integral, and Derivative) control is possible with the Click PLC. The Click Programming Software version 2.50 now includes PID. This features 8 full-featured control loops with an easy graphical user interface (GUI). PID will run on all of the Ethernet-enabled Click PLCs.
We will be using this PID along with a Factory IO scene to demonstrate PID control and Autotuning using our Click PLC.
