The PLC, or Programmable Logic Controller, is the ‘brain’ that enables control, operation and interaction between machines and factory workers. OPC, or Open Platform Communication, is the industry standard for machine-to-machine and machine-to-system communication.
Every project is unique, so every machine is configured and programmed by CTI's engineers to integrate seamlessly into your warehouse or production environment. This includes designing the controls, programming the machine itself (PLC) and ensuring it connects, communicates and coordinates with all your machines in the warehouse and on the factory floor using the OPC protocols.
