Intro to Programmable Logic Controllers. These can be though of as Arduino's bigger brother. They are ruggedized edge computers used for the control of manufacturing processes. These, like a microcontroller take a program from a computer and then run it repeatedly. Some of the main differences is a PLC need to withstand the stress of an industrial setting and they often can read inputs at the rate of 250K times a second. If you used an Arduino to control a factory and it signal controls were off a 1/1000th of a second we would have Telsa's missing door assemblies by lunch any given day.
