technology advances, industrial companies and their systems need to be able to adapt swiftly when it comes to rapid production changes to meet the market needs of today for innovative products. Majority of automated industrial systems are controlled with programmable logic controllers (PLCs) that are programmed with ladder logic. With the incorporation of internet control using a Web-Based server to command and control a PLC for an industrial system, great advances can occur due to the internet…
