Programmable logic controller (PLC) control panels or also known as PLC Automation Panel are one of the most important and efficient kind of control panels. Which are generally used in variety of electronic and electrical circuit systems. PLC Control Panels manufactured by Universal Switch Gear Control are highly capable of giving higher output at less power consumption and Integrated with solid PLC logic and flawless PLC hardware programming. 

Universal Switch Gear Control offers configurable Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) panels that provide flexible, reliable, and affordable automation control for any industrial, manufacturing, or production process application.

Programmable Logic Controllers used by us are available from an extensive network of leading electrical control manufacturers including Allen Bradley, Schneider Electric, Mitsubishi Electric and Siemens to ensure your preferred manufacturer’s products are available for configuration.


The Universal Switch Gear Control PLC Panel’s configuration enables you to design your own controller package by selecting various components to be as large and sophisticated, or as small and simple as you need. All devices will be mounted in a CPRI and ERDA approved enclosure and wired to terminal blocks for quick and easy field installation, and require a 220VAC connection.

 The PLC Panel’s configuration also offers many options including:

(a). Communication Options

(b). Digital or Analog I/O

(c). Temperature Measurement

(d). Industrial LAN Router

(e). EtherNet Switch

(f). Programming Receptacle

(g) Fan and Filter Package


A basic PLC system consists of the following sections:-              

(1). Input/ Output Section:- The input section or input module consists of devices like sensors, switches and many other real world input sources. The input from the sources is connected to the PLC through the input connector rails. The output section or output module can be a motor or a solenoid or a lamp or a heater, whose functioning is controlled by varying the Input signals.

(2). CPU or Central Processing Unit:- It is the brain of the PLC. It can be a hexagonal or an octal microprocessor. It carries out all the processing related to the input signals in order to control the output signals based on the control program.

(3). Programming Device:- It is the platform where the program or the control logic is written. It can be a handheld device or a laptop or a computer itself.

(4). Power Supply:- It generally works on a power supply of about 24 V, used to power input and output devices.

(5). Memory:- The memory is divided into two parts- The data memory and the program memory. The program information or the control logic is stored in the user memory or the program memory from where the CPU fetches the program instructions. The input and output signals and the timer and counter signals are stored in the input and output external image memory respectively

Advantages Programmable logic controller (PLC) control panels:-

(1). Compared to a conventional process control system, number of wires needed for connections is reduced by 80%. 

(2). Consumption is greatly reduced because a PLC consumes less than a bunch of relays.

(3). Diagnostic functions of a PLC controller allow for fast and easy error detection.

(4). Change in operating sequence or application of a PLC controller to a different operating process can easily be accomplished by replacing a program through a console or using a PC software (not requiring changes in wiring, unless addition of some input or output device is required).

(5). Needs fewer spare parts.

(6). It is much cheaper compared to a conventional system, especially in cases where a large   number of I/O instruments are needed and when operational functions are complex.

(7). Reliability of a PLC is greater than that of an electro-mechanical relay or a timer.
