In today’s video I take a look back at the evolution of PLCs, then I talk about some of the next generation features vendors have available today, after which I discuss what me might see in the coming years.

Note that I created this video for a session I hosted at’s Control Automation Day 2022 on 06/21/22, and it was also made available a few days earlier to members of my Locals community here. (TAS2 E4)
